Billy F. Brewer, 77, of Dyersburg, died Monday, March 13, 2017 at his residence. Born August 13, 1939, he was the son of the late Oscar and Neva Boone Brewer.  Bill was a kind man and avid outdoorsman, whether it was farming from sunup to sundown or hunting his favorite wild game of the season.  He was a deacon in the Baptist church and song leader for 35 plus years of his life.  Married to his childhood sweetheart, Wanda Gibson Brewer, for 58 years this past Valentine’s Day, they loved golfing together with close friends.  His great love extended, not only to his children and grandchildren, but to the community of family and friends of Halls and Dyersburg.
