Gary J. Brewster

March 12, 1972 ~ November 16, 2021 (age 49)


Gary J. Brewster, 49, Edgar passed away on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at Froedert Hospital, Milwaukee.


He was born March 12, 1972, in Beaverton, Michigan, son of Gary L. and Susan (Bazsany) Brewster, Edgar.  On October 15, 1994, he married Sheila Strasser at St. John Catholic Church, Edgar.  She survives.


For more than 24 years Gary worked at Greenheck in Schofield.  Gary was a man of many stories and had an answer for anything.  He was able to speak to anyone and make them feel like a friend. His smile and infectious laugh could change a bad day in an instant.  Gary had a green thumb and loved his garden and took pride in his yard.  He was an avid outdoorsman and loved creating things with his hands.  He took pride in the two houses he built for his family.  But, his love for coaching and helping kids succeed was of his greatest passion.  He always said he loved those girls as if they were his own daughters.  Lastly, he was a man that loved his family.  He was so proud of his kids and all of their achievements and beamed as he talked about them.  He always strived to make everyone happy, not ever asking for anything in return.  He will be loved and greatly missed by all!


Survivors include his wife, Sheila Brewster, Edgar, his parents, Gary and Susan Brewster, Edgar, his children, Kyle and Hannah, Edgar, his siblings, Ronda (Jerry) Myszka and their children Chad and Elliott, Edgar, Scott (Robin) Brewster and son Ryan (Sarah), Athens, his mother-in-law, Kathleen Strasser, Edgar, his sister-in-law Pam (Kirt) Dvorak and their children Tyler and Logan Engel and Hailey and Mitchell Dvorak, Mosinee, his brothers-in-law, Jason Strasser, Mosinee, and Chris (Lana) Strasser and their children Paige and Kaden, Edgar, and many other family and friends.


The family would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, Howard Young Medical Center and Froedtert Hospital for their compassion and care of our loved one Gary.
