James Hugh "Sandy" Brewer, Jr. of Conway died on Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014.
He was born on April 6, 1954, to James Hugh Brewer, Sr. and Bobbye Bryant Brewer of Conway.
He graduated from Conway High School in 1972, and from the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) in 1976 with a B.S.E. in political science and English. While a student at UCA, Sandy was a member of Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity.
After graduating from UCA, Sandy taught English and journalism at Harrison High School from 1976 to 1984. He returned to Conway in 1984 to work for the Conway Corporation; and remained there as Manager of Materials and Property until he retired in August 2012.
On the occasion of his retirement from the Conway Corporation, Log Cabin Democrat writer Becky Harris wrote, "At the retirement party on Tuesday, CEO Richie Arnold said the work Sandy Brewer did at the Conway Corporation could be measured by the behavior of his workers. 'They were always prepared for whatever came along,'" Arnold said. "'We'll miss you every day. Please know you will always be a part of whatever we do.'"
Sandy served on the Conway City Council for six years from January 2001 through December 2006, representing the residents of Ward 2. While in office he served on the Ambulance Oversight Committee and the Pandemic Flu Committee. He was Chairman at all Uniformed Employees Appeals Board hearings and was Conway's MEMS Representative.
After leaving office he served on the Conway Civil Service Commission and Police Chief Search Committee. Sandy also served one term on the Faulkner County Quorum Court while a student at UCA. He often stated, "I was the only long-haired member of the Faulkner County Quorum Court."
Sandy served several years on the Toad Council and was a former member of the Optimist Club and Jaycees.
As a young boy Sandy joined Boy Scouts of America and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He loved everything about scouting and treasured the time he went to National Jamboree in 1969 and the summer spent at Philmont.
He loved to hunt, fish, and commune with nature. He especially enjoyed spending time at his cabin in Calico Rock with his two dogs and teaching his granddaughters the joys of fishing, hunting, and enjoying the great outdoors.
Sandy was a Christian who accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior many years ago. He never wavered in his faith and looked forward to heaven.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, William C. and Vinnie Brewer of Pine Bluff, and Alton and Elva Bryant of Conway; and his father-in-law, Charles Phillips of Benton.
He is survived by his wife, Cheryl Phillips Brewer of Conway; a son, Zachary Brewer of Conway; a daughter, Cara Brewer Cates (Aaron) of Vilonia; a stepson, Rob Winters (Kelli) of Benton; and four grandchildren, Kali and Jillian Cates of Vilonia, and Lindsey and Lily Winters of Benton. He is also survived by his parents, James and Bobbye Brewer of Conway; a sister, Judy Brewer Austin (Milo) of Conway; his mother-in-law, Gloria Phillips; and his sister-in-law, Linda Hambric (Carroll) of Benton.
Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014, at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home, Conway.
Funeral service will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014, at Woodland Heights Baptist Church in Conway.
A private burial will be held on the grounds of his cabin at Culp, Ark.
Pallbearers include Frank Bartrow, Paul Bentley, Racy Garis, Cory Garrett, Mike Hale, and Paul Jones.
