Larry Brewer, 70, husband, father, grandpa, and very special friend of many, passed away on March 13, 2018.

Larry was born in Gainesville, Missouri, to Jack and Ruth Brewer who brought their family of six to Powell when Larry was 5 years old. Larry attended Powell schools and graduated from PHS.

On June 13, 1972, Larry married his wife of 45 years, Zoe Brewer. With Zoe, Larry raised three children, Gary, Shannon and Elizabeth. Together Larry and Zoe shared the love of the outdoors with their children.

Larry worked for the Shoshone Irrigation District for 38 years as well as spending countless hours in the fields of Powell. During his life he had many passions. He had a love of family, fast cars, outdoor activities, and a good game of cribbage. If you wanted to find Larry, you could look for him in a tractor out in the fields helping the local farmers, at the café round table solving the world’s problems, or at any sporting event where he was his grandchildrens’ number one fan.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Ruth Brewer; sister, Muriel Brewer; and brother, Bill Brewer.

Larry is survived by his wife, Zoe Brewer of Powell; son, Gary (Christina) Brewer of Powell; son, Shannon (Tommi Williams) Brewer of Powell; daughter, Elizabeth (Robert) Feller of Powell; sister, Carol (Chuck) Eckley of Dubois; sister-in-law Janet Brewer of Cody; brother-in-law Danny (Laurie) Zwemer of Deaver; brother-in-law Zan Zwemer of Lander; sister-in-law Connie Brickley of Billings; grandchildren, Tyler, Kortny, Ashton, Payten, Colton, Maddie, Ethan, Ava, Parker and Ily; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many close friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, March 20 at the New Life Church in Powell at 10 a.m. Condolences and memories may be sent to the family at or P.O. Box 807, Powell, WY 82435.
