MSgt Charles "C.J." James Brewster, USAF, Ret

MSgt Charles “C.J.” James Brewster, USAF, Ret, age 75, passed away on Monday, December 6, 2021 in Ocean Springs, MS.

Mr. Brewster was born on September 11, 1946, in Watertown, New York. After graduating from Oberlin High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and proudly served our country from 1965-1985. After his service, Mr. Brewster worked for the U.S. Geological Survey installing and maintaining seismograph equipment around the world. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Linda Brewster, whom he met the first day he went off of base while exploring the beaches of Biloxi. Alongside taking very good care of his family, Mr. Brewster found great joy in representing Americans by doing great acts of kindness such as attending banquets for royalty in Thailand and delivering salt to remote villages in Africa – a life-saving measure. He was lucky enough to travel to every continent on our beautiful planet. Mr. Brewster’s favorite song was Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”.

Mr. Brewster is preceded in death by his parents, Henry Charles Brewster and Mary Margaret George Brewster; son, Barry Scott Brewster; and brother, Larry Brewster.

Survivors include his wife, Linda Jeanette Hayman Brewster; daughter, Kristy Brewster; grandchildren, Stephanie Brewster, Jenay Brewster, Christopher Brewster, and Amy Beckman; his great-grandchildren, Savannah Brewster and Johnny White; and sister, Vicki Campbell.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

There’s a new world somewhere that they call the promised land; I’ll be there some day if you will hold my hand. I still need you there beside me no matter what I do. I’m sure I’ll never find another you.

There is always someone for each of us they say and you’ll be my someone forever and a day. I could search the whole world over until my life is through and I know I’ll never find another you. It’s a long, long journey so stay by my side. If I walk through a storm, be my guide.

If I were given a fortune, my treasure would be small. I could lose it all tomorrow and never mind at all. But if I should lose your love, I don’t know what I’d do. But I know I’ll never find another you. Your loving wife, Linda
