Allen Brewer Sr, a cherished soul, adored father, and beloved husband, returned to his heavenly home on January 16, 2024. Born on June 2, 1933, in Mississippi, Allen was the fifth among nine siblings—a testament to the vibrant, loving home from which he hailed.
A proud patriot, Allen served in the United States Army from the tender age of 24. Throughout his service, he was honored with the National Defense Service Medal, an emblem of his good conduct and the respect he earned from his peers. His military service was but one of many ways he exhibited his commitment to the principles he held dear.
Allen's faith was a cornerstone of his existence. He devoted his life to the Lord early on and maintained an unfaltering path of devotion, a testament to the strength and depth of his belief.
Love found a firm footing in Allen's life when he married Jean Simmons. Together, they welcomed three children into the world: Allen Jr., Sandra, and Sharon Brewer. His heart and home expanded further as he embraced stepdaughter Wanda Taylor with the same warmth and love after marrying Linnie Larry.
The St. Louis community was enriched by Allen's presence for over five decades, following his move from Tennessee. At Boeing Aircraft, he was more than a maintenance supervisor; he was a beacon of integrity, warmth, and dedication—a sentiment heartfelt by his colleagues who wept at the announcement of his retirement.
Allen's narrative was a tapestry of stories and memories, especially of his Boeing days—reminiscences he shared willingly until illness dimmed the light of his voice.
He was a paragon of fatherhood, not only to his own children but extended his paternal love to his nephews, Phil and Guy. Their enduring gratitude and constant care for Allen in his later years mirrors the love he poured into their upbringing.
Nature was Allen's sanctuary; he reveled in the simplicity and peace of tending to his garden, his respite found in the embrace of the morning sun and the quiet work with the earth.
Even in his leisure, Allen's spirit of service shone brightly as he safeguarded young lives as a crossing guard for the Hattiesburg Police Department. Ensuring the safety of the little ones was a joy and a duty he held close to his heart.
The legacy Allen leaves behind is one of unwavering love, service, and faith. He remains a guiding light for his son Allen Jr., daughter-in-law Joyce, his precious grandchildren, and a close-knit circle of relatives including his best friend and sister Pauline and his nieces and nephews in Los Angeles, California.
The world is dimmer without Allen's earthly presence, but the heavens are brighter for his return to them. We carry his spirit in the stories he left behind and the wisdom he imparted—a beacon of love, now and always.
