Obituary for Ray Kirby Brewer

Mr. Ray Kirby Brewer has been reunited with the following loved ones who preceded him in meeting the author and finisher of his faith: wife Betty Brewer, daughter Celena Michelle “Misty” Brewer, sister Jeanene Engle, brother Jimmy Brewer, and parents Grover Laverne “Bud” and Anna Lou Brewer.

Born in Mobile, Alabama on October 13, 1943, Kirby later grew up in Georgetown, Mississippi with three sisters and two brothers. Kirby graduated from Hazlehurst High School in 1963. Employed by Fountain Electric, Kirby retired in 2008 from Delphi Packard of Brookhaven, Mississippi. Spending most of his later years enjoying life’s simple pleasures, Kirby did not miss an opportunity for getting together with friends and family, vacationing in the mountains, laughing and making others laugh, bragging about Alabama football, watching western movies, spending time outdoors, enjoying seafood, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and a good milkshake, reminiscing with fellow members of the IBEW Local 480 of Jackson, Mississippi, and volunteering to help whenever and wherever help was needed. Besides his family, those who knew Kirby best could tell of his unwavering sense of patriotism reflected in the time he served in the Army National Guard, the love he had for Brother Johnnie Stewart and the PRBC family, the joy he found in caring for his animals, and above all, the hope he found in Jesus.

Family members holding fast to many treasured memories of Kirby include his beloved wife Patsy Brewer, siblings Judy (Randy) Clyburn, Billie (Johnny Mack) Smith, and Mickey (Teresa) Brewer, son Russell (Susan) Brewer, grandchildren Dustin, Russell Jr., Taylor, Daniel (Rachel), Haley and Timothy Brewer, stepdaughter Dr. Amanda (Shane) Stocks, grandchildren Sadie and A.J. Stocks, many great-grandchildren, sisters and brothers in-law, along with adored nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life visitation is scheduled at Pilgrims Rest Baptist Church on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, with the service immediately following. Graveside will be at Harmony Baptist Church. Due to the ongoing risk of the Coronavirus, please wear a mask to the visitation and service.

In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted to the Timothy Brewer Scholarship Fund (Copiah Bank).

The family would like to extend a sincere thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Baptist Hospital and the Copiah County Medical Center therapy team, who bravely work with Coronavirus patients each and every day.
