I guess I always said "Davey" Brewer. Maybe it was a time when Davey Crockett was on TV or just how we spoke to each other as kids. I knew Dave from about 2nd or 3rd grade at Hartwell Elementary. He lived in Valleydale when we all walked to school. No bus or relative to drive us to school. He was always good in class and I remember standing around outside in the morning with him, Kenny Ellison and others testing each other if we knew our new words for the spelling test. Karen Thielmeyer always knew more words than us. I have to say the thing that bothered me with Dave, he knew how to dress and always looked prepted. I guess that was my first orginal sin "envy" and wish I had been a better person about his grace and presence. But I tried to learn some of his style. Dave was known by everyone in Hartwell and is a major loss for so many of us who grew up with him. His suffering gone, may he have eternal peace. I find a tear in my eye as I age and it has come again.

Dave (Owen) Brewer was a great guy, with a wonderful personality, style and grace.  Dave and I first became friends in the 7th grade at WHS junior high.  Dave was from Hartwell, and I was from North Avondale Elementary school.  Dave was also a good friend of my cousin Richard Golden.  In high school Dave and I had several classes together.  I do remember being in Mr. Georg Brooks Art class with Dave.  As I rember, Dave was also an accomplished artist.  I was very sad to hear about Dave's cancer diagnosis.  I was hoping he would be able to hold on until our 50th WHS Reunion.  My sincere sypmpathy and condolences, and best wishes to Judy and their two daughters.  I'll see my friend Dave on the other side!

I grew up on the same street as Dave and we spent many evenings outside with the other kids (including fellow WHS "65 alums Steve Luken and Chuck Ebel)  playing hide and seek and four square in the street. On hot summer days, a bunch of us had an ongoing Monopoly game in my basement to escape from the humid days. (No air conditioning!) After graduation, I lost touch with Dave, but later saw him on Facebook. It is sad to lose another classmate and I send deepest sympathy to his beautiful family. Rest in peace, Dave.
