Barry Brewer May 22, 1951 ~ July 1, 2023 (age 72) We are shocked and saddened to announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Barry Brewer on July 1, 2023, in Tulameen, BC. Barry had a passion for life, love, and family with a deep connection to Tulameen. His compelling presence, along with his huge smile and laugh, endeared him quickly to those he met, and resulted in many lifelong friendships. He was accomplished in his chosen sports, and passed doing what he loved most, riding a dirt bike. Mentor, coach, confidante, adventurer, athlete, instigator, and amazing soul, Barry inspired others with high expectations for himself and those fortunate to follow. Ride in Peace. He is survived by Bonnie Lumley, his spouse, and his family, Bernie (Marjorie) Brewer, Elaine (Tom) McGrath, Danny (Jean) Brewer, Loretta (Neil) McDiarmid, Carolann Brewer, Teresa (Ron) Therien, Dave (Karen) Brewer, and Ian Brewer as well as numerous extended family and friends. Barry was predeceased by his parents, Leonard and Leona Brewer, and his brother, Neil Brewer. A Celebration of Barry’s Life will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. at the Tulameen Arena. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Tulameen Community Club at https://tulameenbc.com/product/donate.
