Ryan Christopher Brewton was born Jan. 2, 1993, to a very proud mother, Ms. Kimberly Brewton. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Mr. Henry Brewton, whom he looked up to and learned the lessons of manhood from, and his grandmother, Mrs. Frankie Brewton, whom he loved to sing with in the choir on Sunday mornings.
He received his education in the Liberty County School System. Ryan was always known to be a free-spirited young man, and his teachers loved him very much. Anyone who met him fell in love with him. He loved to laugh and joke all the time. You never saw him without a big smile on his face. He was very active in the youth departments of Agape Christian Fellowship and First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church. He graduated in 2013 from Bradwell Institute, pursued a career in the United States Army and was stationed in Alaska until his unexpected passing away.
Ryan's favorite color was blue and his meal wasn't complete unless he had his favorite foods - ham and macaroni and cheese. He loved computers, reading and listening to music in his spare time. His favorite song was "I believe I can Fly," and he had a very optimistic outlook on life. Ryan believed that the sky was the limit. He was one who would reach for the stars, and his outlook and attitude were an inspiration to those around him.
On Jan. 18, 2014, Ryan changed duty stations for the last time on Earth, and he now resides with his Heavenly Father and grandparents.
He leaves to cherish his beautiful memory his mother, Kimberly Brewton; one brother, Darius Brewton; one aunt, Myra Brewton; one uncle, Rodney Brewton; his close cousins, Taleah, Mattie, Donald and Henri Brewton, all of Hinesville; and a host of other uncles, aunts, relatives and friends.
Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, at First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 124 Rebecca St., Hinesville. The Rev. Daisy Edwards will officiate. Interment with full honors will be in First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery on Highway 84 in Hinesville.
