Justus Reid "Buddy" Brewer

November 4, 1947 — May 13, 2024

Forest Hill

Justus Reid "Buddy" Brewer, age 76, of Forest Hill, Maryland, passed away on May 13, 2024, at Accent Care at Franklin Square in Rosedale, Maryland. Born in Bel Air, Maryland, he was the son of the late Gordon and Laurine (Edwards) Brewer and husband of Betty (Chen) Brewer, whom he married in 1968 at Ching Chuan Kang Air Base in Taiwan.

 

Buddy lived a vibrant life filled with laughter and love. He had a passion for music, finding joy in singing in barbershop quartets. His adventurous spirit led him to explore the skies, enjoying the thrill of flying powered parachutes. In his younger years, Buddy cherished the outdoors and spent many days hunting.

 

After retiring, Buddy discovered a new hobby: antagonizing telemarketers. He came up with numerous ways to retaliate against the telemarketers who persistently called day after day.  Renowned for his pranks and humor, Buddy had a talent for lifting spirits and spreading smiles wherever he went.  He also found joy in charming the ladies with his playful banter.

 

Above all, Buddy was a devoted family man who cherished his loved ones and furry companions. He is survived by his loving wife, Betty Brewer; daughter, Sonya (Jeffrey) Gahler; son, Brian (Amy) Brewer; grandchildren, Shelby Gahler and Sydney Gahler; and brother, Christopher (Nancy) Brewer.
