Tommy Alan Brewster passed peacefully from this life into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the age of 63 at the home of his son, Michael, in his company and presence.
After graduating high school in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1973, Tom moved to Houston, Texas where he met his wonderful bride of 40 years, Julia R. Amelang. Tommy then attended Southwest Texas State University where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
Tom then went on to work for his father-in-law, Karl Amelang, in commercial real estate development. In 2004, after a successful 22-year career, he moved his family to Burton, Texas, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city in exchange for the quiet and peaceful country life.
Tommy is best remembered for his selfless servanthood, always willing to help anyone, any time, any place.

He then went on to serve in other ways such as being an active member of the Rotary Club of Washington County, Chairman of the board at Citadel Christian School and President of the Washington County Men’s Bowling League, always seeking ways to help others leading up to his passing.
In his spare time, he enjoyed spending quality time with his family as well as keeping his 20 acres in such pristine condition, you could pick a patch of grass and have a picnic, no blanket necessary.
