Mr. Brewster was preceded in death by both his parents, George and Leona Brewster; and three brothers, Wayne, Davies, and George.

Mr. Brewster was a proud United States Navy Veteran. After serving in the Navy, Alec became a devoted worker to B&O railroad. He also was an over the road truck driver, along with other endeavors over the years. He enjoyed researching whatever had his interest and was an avid reader. He could be found in recent years walking with his furry friend, Oscar around Sandoval, as the weather permitted. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
