June 28, 1942 - May 23, 2020
Henry J. Brewster, Jr. Burt, Michigan Beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather fulfilled his work here and has earned his place in Heaven. He worked hard his entire life to support his wife and family. Always lending a hand to anyone who needed it. Never refused anyone. He loved the sport of baseball. Not only did he play for many years, he was also a dedicated coach for many years. He also enjoyed fishing, horseshoes and always had the best euchre hand. He also loved his music and jamming with his grandkids, the many jokes and talking like Donald Duck. Life without him will be hard, but the one thing he taught us all was to live. We will miss him dearly until the day we are reunited. Until then, he will always just be a heartbeat and a memory away. Prior to his retirement, Henry worked as an assistant manager for Vescio’s Grocery Store, and he had also worked for Industrial Coating. Henry passed away on Saturday, May 23, 2020, at Covenant Medical Center – Cooper. He was 77 years old.
