Joseph Nathaniel Brewer

July 1, 2022

Joseph Nathaniel Brewer was born June 10, 1994, to Larry Brewer and Debra Henderson. He passed away peacefully on March 11, 2022, from his third battle with cancer. Those of you who knew Joey are invited to his and his father's life celebration at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 16, at 62 Rocking Tree Road, Bonners Ferry.

Joey was a funny, compassionate, kind, loving, resilient, competitive guy who always knew how to make anyone smile. I could go on and on for days listing all of the wonderful things that Joey was, but I think the word “strong” most accurately describes Joey.

He was strong physically, mentally, emotionally, and could definitely beat anyone in an arm wrestling match any day. Joey enjoyed spending his time outdoors as much as he could. He loved camping, hiking, white water rafting, swimming, boating, archery, and just about anything you could name that’s outside.
As we all know, Joey lost his leg to his second cancer, but what he lacked in legs he made up for in his charm and loving heart, which was 10 times the size of anyone else’s. Joey was a friend to everyone he met and always made sure to include everyone no matter what.

His death is a huge loss to all of us, but what is not lost are the memories he left with each and everyone that crossed his path. He’s going to be missed dearly, he already is.

Joey will forever live on through his mother, Debra Henderson, step dad Scott Henderson, brother Joshua Brewer, sisters Ashley and Amanda Brewer, and of course all of his friends, especially Brandon Dahlberg.
