Our beloved Fredrick “Freddie” Duane Brewer was born March 16, 1930 in Crowley, CO and went to meet his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on May 2, 2024 at his home in Colorado Springs, CO.

After his service, he was honorably discharged and moved to Leoti, KS where he spent the next 43 years in farming. He loved watching things grow.  On December 5, 1954 he married Janet Joyce Palmour in Crowley, CO. Freddie gave his heart to follow Jesus in 1956 at the Leoti Baptist Church.

  8. Janet, I am so saddened to learn of Freddie’s passing. You both have truly been life long friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time. (You may not know I lost my Bob on April 5th). Sending love and deepest sympathy.

  9. We are truly saddened to hear about Freddie. Our prayers are for you to get through these tough times. I know you have many family and friends who will do whatever you need. I always enjoyed talking with Freddie about his cars. He was very innovative in his approach to playing duplicate bridge with his patented “Famous Freddie Freestyle”. To say he is in a much better place other than next to you is an understatement. God Bless you. Dale and Gayle

  12. Dear Brewer family
    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Freddie. He was a second dad to me as I was growing up across the street. I have so many wonderful memories with Freddie and Janet and kids. I will always remember all of you fondly and with love.
    My dad has already passed, but I know Freddie was a special person to him. We all shared many, many fun times.
    I send you thoughts and prayers from myself, my family and my mom, Virginia.

  13. I noticed someone mentioning Freddie’s laugh. I loved his laugh and smiles. He was always so interested in everyone’s lives. Many times as people age they become self focused, but not you, Janet or Freddie. You were always thinking of others. I’ve always loved to have conversations with you both, your wisdom and curiosity never stopped. And your love has always been so transparent. Not only for Christ but also your love for family and friends. You have always inspired me to be a better Christian and person.
    And the stories! Oh I love all your stories. You both have looked at life with joy and fun, which brings me back to Freddie’s laugh. I will miss that. Even in adversity you have found the goodness of the Lord!
    You both have left an amazing legacy that will live on through your children, grandchildren and all those who love you!
    Love you so so much!❤️

  14. Dear Aunt Janet and family, we’re so sorry to hear of Uncle Freddie’s passing. Alan and I send you our deepest condolences. We will always remember him as the kind, generous and fun loving man that he was. With love, Dorly and Alan.

  15. Kay and Family,
    I didn’t know Freddie personally, but I’ve heard so many wonderful things about him that I feel I knew what a wonderful man he was to all who spent time with him : ) I’m especially thankful for the legacy of his beautiful daughter, Kay, that I’m blessed to have as a dear friend. I’m thankful for the love of God that her parents placed in her and for what an awesome dad Freddie was to her 🙂
