Rick Allan Brewer 62, resident of Noblesville, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ October 21, 2013, peacefully at home next to his wife, due to complications from pulmonary fibrosis.
He was born in Lebanon Indiana, June 20, 1951. Rick was a Frankfort High School graduate. He earned his Bachelors and Masters Degree from Ball State University. Rick was married to Pamela Newbold-Brewer on November 27, 1971. Rick had many challenges beginning early in life. He was diagnosed with polio at 15 months old. Through all the challenges, polio, surgeries, post-polio syndrome and pulmonary fibrosis, none of these defined who he was. He was always smiling, laughing and such an encouragement to others around him. Especially the young lives he touched in his 20 years of teaching in the Pike Township School system. “I HAVE FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, I HAVE FINISHED THE RACE, I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH”, 2 Timothy 4:7
