He was the son of the late Genevee (Kelly) and Ransom Brewer. Evan came to Mansfield around the age of 13 and resided there until his move to the desert of Arizona in 1984.

Evan served honorably in the US Navy and was married for 54 years to his wife, Linda Minter Brewer. They had one son, Randy. Evan’s love for family led him to work hard to build a future and a legacy. He loved golf, fishing, and having his family around as much as possible.

(Beth) Brewer; three grandchildren, Joshua (Alisa) Brewer, Carlie (Anders) Pedersen and Jordyn Brewer; two great-grandchildren, Graham Michael Pedersen and Rylee Lynn Marie Brewer; and four siblings, Delora Thomas, Marjorie Bailey, Earl Brewer, and Kathy Stehle.
