Billy DeWayne Brewster III, age 15, passed away Saturday, September 28, 2019 in Austin, Texas. Billy was born May 16, 2004 in Austin, Texas to Mia Brown and Billy Brewster, Jr.

He attended many schools, including Copperfield Elementary, River Oaks Elementary, Parmer Lane Elementary, Westview Middle School and Connally High School, to name a few. Billy loved playing outdoors on his trampoline, and in his free time, rain or shine, Billy had a tremendous liking for lawn mowers. I am pretty sure he has his own lawn mower business in heaven, trimming clouds now instead of grass. I know he is doing a fabulous job up there keeping heaven all trimmed and beautiful. Billy was the type of person that never met a stranger. His acquaintances very quickly became close friends and then permanently became “family” to Billy. His smile and presence will always be remembered by everyone who knew him. Mommy and Daddy love you. You will forever be our “Toot Toot and Dada”!

Billy is survived by his parents, Mia Brown and Billy Brewster, Jr.; his grandmothers; great grandmother; aunts and uncles; close family friend, Jason Thomas; and many cousins. Billy was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Wayne Anthony Brown and Billy Brewster, Sr..

Visitation will be held Sunday, October 13, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home, 14501 North Interstate 35, Pflugerville, Texas 78660.

Billy was my next door neighbor for over five years or longer. He would be waiting for me to pull up in my driveway. Why ? He was waiting to get ice cream that I always kept in the freezer for him. He would get his ice cream grin and go home. He loved the lawn mower just as much as he loved my ice cream. He will be truly missed by his mom and nana.

I served as one of Billy's teachers his 6th grade year at Westview. When I think of Billy, I imagine him smiling from ear to ear and snapping his fingers to music! His beautiful spirit was contagious and made us laugh often. Ms. Mia, may God give you the strength you need and wrap you in His arms. 💙

The first time I met Billy, he was running laps around the classroom. After a few minutes, he came over and sat next to me. He saw that breakfast was bacon and eggs. He pointed to the bacon and within 5 minutes he learned and independently used the sign for bacon. Through the years I knew him bacon was always a favorite and when he used his voice, his signs, or device to tell me what he wanted, I felt honored that he trusted me enough to try out new words with me.

Even when Billy's eyes told me he thought I was crazy for not underatanding him, he chided everyone to share and be nice.. Billy's impish mischieviousness developed into loving and kind leadership skills. He made sure everyone had someone to play with. Billy was a bolt of compassion and kindness no matter where he went

When Billy and Micah got together for play dates, even though it was evident that Billy's biggest love was for his mom, Billy still shared his happiness and love with us. He let Micah choose games and sat on the swings even when it was obvious Billy would have preferred to run.

I worked with Billy at summer school over the years. He was always happy. He enjoyed snacks, running, and listening to a lawnmower sound. He knew how to have fun and be happy which is important to loving life. Billy will be missed and remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

I knew Billy from Westview Middle School and Connally High School. He was a sweet boy who brightened the room with his energy and smile. I remember he would often jump with excitement, fueled by his favorite snacks! He was loved by so many and will be missed.

I first met Billy at the end of last year when he and other students came to tour Connally. He was all smiles. We later met at summer school... Again, all smiles.

As the school year started my classroom was next to Billy's room. When I would see him... I would say... "Hey! What'cha doing!?" and Billy would always smile.

I will always remember that smile. He will be greatly missed at Connally. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Thank you for sharing him with us.

I worked with Billy in elementary school. He always had a big smile and would find clever ways to get out of writing! Many times I would come into class and he would be watching lawn mowing videos. Billy was precious, we will miss you sweet boy!

When I was working on my M.Ed. I had to do a class with a student of special needs. Billy was the one that I chose to teach. He made it so much fun with his jolly spirit. 🥵
