Obituary of Rev. William Thomas Brewer

Rev. William T. Brewer, 77, of Florence, Alabama, passed from this life December 7, 2021, after an extended illness. William was born September 6, 1944, in Florence, Alabama. At the early age of 12, he accepted Christ as his personal Savior and dedicated his life in service to the Lord. His legacy for the Lord includes singing with the Singing Brewer Family, traveling the area ministering in song until in 1973, when he accepted the call to preach. William preached his first sermon in December 1973 and since then has not wavered in his devotion to God’s work. He was pastor to Waterloo Baptist, First Baptist Elgin, First Baptist Cloverdale and Fairview Baptist finally retiring in 2021 after 47 years of ministry. For many years he also shared a radio program on WBTG with his brother Laymon preaching on Sunday mornings. He also wrote songs and books in addition to his preaching ministry to show others Christ and how to live that out daily in their own lives.
