Bobby O’Neal Brewster, 77, of LaGrange, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. The pain is over, and a good race was run.

Born and raised in Langdale, Bobby was the only child of the late Robert Guy and Maggie Lee Sanders Brewster. He graduated from Valley High School in 1963. Upon graduation, Bobby continued his education at United Electronic Laboratories. He began his professional life working for Southern Bell and retired from Bellsouth as a Senior Lineman after 40+ years of service. Bobby was a faithful member of Wehadkee Baptist Church.

Bobby was a simple, quiet man unless he was talking about his favorite hobby of hunting Indian artifacts or searching for “Big Foot”. He was a man with a big heart who loved his family. He was a hard worker, dedicated to taking care of and providing for his family and in his professional life. Bobby was a man of faith who felt closer to God through nature. He knew the earth was full of God’s handiwork, and he appreciated the fact that he had eyes to see its beauty. Bobby had an enviable green thumb and could grow almost anything. He could find beauty in the smallest of God’s creations. He knew that the mountains would stand strong, that the waves would continue to gently lap on the shore, and that the sun would always rise even after the darkest night. The works of God’s hands were precious to him. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Clyde “Pete” Simonton and Maggie Ruth Simonton.
