After serving more than fifty years in the ministry, Rev. Brewer went to be with his Lord and Saviour, on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. Born in Orangeburg, SC, he was a son of the late Rev. Lloyd Frank Brewer, Sr., and Ruby Williams Brewer. He was a member and Minister of Music at Cayce United Methodist Church.
Rev. Brewer was a graduate of Wayne County High School, Jesup, GA, Norman Park College, Norman Park, GA; Mercer University, Macon, GA and Southwestern Seminary, Fort Worth, TX, where he majored in church music and the organ. Rev. Brewer was ordained to the Ministry in May of 1967 in Fort Worth, TX. He was often called, "The Piano Man", and shared his talent with The South Carolina Baptist Evangelism Conference for twenty-five years. He played for the Pastor’s Conference, numerous workshops, conferences, and revivals throughout the United States, all the while saying "I sing because I’m happy." His music will be missed here by his friends and family, but now he is happily singing with the one he has always served.
Surviving is his loving wife, Joan Pittman Brewer of West Columbia; daughter, Tiffany Brewer Carroll (Jason Brant) of Lexington; sons, Jeremy Lloyd-Franklyn Brewer and Andrew Derek Brewer both of West Columbia; sister, Cheryl Hamilton (James) of Martinez, GA; brother, Rev.
