DONALD'S OBITUARY

It is with great sadness we announce the loss of our loving father, Pa Pa, brother and uncle. Donald Ray Brewer of Livingston Tx. passed away peacefully March 23rd, 2021 at Clear Lake Hospital in Webster, Tx. with loving family by his side. He was born September 26th, 1950 in Wichita, Kansas to Paul and Irene Brewer. The family later moved to Texas where they all settled in. Don married Mary Kay and they lived in

Deer Park Tx. where they raised their kids and welcomed many grandchildren. Don was a truck driver for many years and was acknowledged several times with awards for his continued safety on the roads. Don finished out his career with Praxair in Deer Park Tx. in 2002. After losing the love of his life, Mary Kay, Don was blessed to find love and happiness again with Robin. Shortly after retirement they found their dream spot on the lake and moved to Livingston. They had so many years of fun times fishing and enjoying their blended family. If you ever had the pleasure of visiting them at the lake, there was never a shortage of family and friends just hanging out and making wonderful memories. Many of those memories were made in the bike shed (man cave). He was an avid fisherman (Robin too!), but also enjoyed cruising around the neighborhood on his golf cart visiting friends. After losing Robin and his health started declining, Don always had friends and family around checking on him and keeping him company. In his later years there was nowhere he would rather be than on the open road riding his Harley. Donald was loved and respected by so many friends, brothers, nieces, nephews, his kids and grandkids. This surely must mean that he did life right! Donald was preceded in death by his father, Paul Brewer, Mother, Irene Brewer, daughter Donna White, 2 granddaughters wife Mary Kathrine Brewer, wife Robin Lynn Brewer and brother James E. Brewer (Pete).

Donald is survived by his children, Robert Blaine Pogue and Rhonda Kay Pogue, Robins sons Kenneth Whittleman III, Robert Whittleman grandchildren Chase, Alexis, Nicole, Matthew, Meagan, Joshua, Kyle, Ashlyn and great grandchildren, sister Paulette Moser, brothers Gene Brewer, Lonnie Brewer and Bruce Brewer and many loving nieces and nephews.

Irving Gene Jackson, the 5th of ten siblings, was born on September 2, 1949 in Camden, Texas, to the parents of Melvin and Johnette Jackson. He was educated in public schools and graduated from Chester High School (Bulldogs) on May 21, 1968. Irving was Valedictorian of his graduating class but concerned that his mother would be unable to pay for expenses not covered by his scholarship, refused the honor, and requested that his scholarship be given to another student. When his mother learned of the decision, she was not pleased and told him that it was not his worry or decision, and she was prepared to send him to college, but Irving being the strong-willed person that he was, refused to change his mind; however, after high school, he attended the Job Corps and received his certification as a mechanical engineer. Upon completion of Job Corps, he returned home and was employed by LP Natural Gas & Pipeline (currently Kinder Morgan) in Lufkin, Texas, where he worked for 35 years until he retired as a Gas Pipeline Supervisor at the young age of 55. While employed, he received numerous awards of recognition, including the Employee Safety Award for all 35 years.

Irving loved hunting and the outdoors. He was not a big fan of crowds or large groups, but when you visited him, he had a good two-hour minimal conversation for you. Irving had no children of his own, but he had his niece “Shun” whom he helped raise and spoiled as his own. On October 25, 2003, God showed him favor and blessed him with a beautiful and devoted wife, Rita, whom he loved very much.

Irving accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Camden, Texas. He later became a member of Lily Island Missionary Baptist Church where he remained a member until his death.

Irving is preceded in death by his parents: Melvin and Johnette Jackson; 4 brothers: James, Charles, Rev John Earl Jackson, and Rev. Harvey Jackson; older sister, Hattie; and two nephews, Jermaine and Dave Jr.

Johnny Range Clawson, Sr.

Johnny Range Clawson, Sr., 81, of Bristol, Va.,(formerly of Onalaska, Texas) passed away on January 20, 2021 at Bristol Regional Medical Center in Tennessee. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Peggy Sue, and son, Michael Eugene Clawson; parents, Charles R. and Bessie Elma Campbell-Clawson Sr.; and siblings, Charlotte Clawson-Hodges, Brenda Clawson-Amburn and Jimmy W. Clawson.

He is survived by his partner in life, Eunice Andrews; brothers, Douglas Clawson and Geri, Bill Clawson and Judy, and Charles Ray Clawson Jr.; son, Johnny R. Clawson Jr. and Dalene Felder of Channelview, Texas; daughter, Kimberly Clawson-Butts and Craig of Onalaska, Texas; grandchildren, Johnny R. Clawson III (Trey) and Jennifer, Sam A. Morgan Jr. (Bo) and Ashley, Kristen E. Butts and Mel Butts; and great-grandchildren, Starleigh, Skyden and Axel Morgan and Jolene L. Clawson.

He was a larger than life man who had friends every place he went. If you didn’t know him, he would make sure you soon did. He loved to be outdoors his entire life and he was always hunting, fishing or bird-watching. He was a country boy from Tennessee who also loved Texas. He believed that everything was useful even if others had thrown it away…He would pick up discarded items and bring them home. He would say “oh, it’s just a little switch that was blown” or “all that was wrong with it was a broken belt…it’s brand new!” He had a hard time throwing anything away because to him everything could be useful in the future. “Never know when you might need it,” he would say. He was raised by his mom, Bessie Elma, and his grandparents, Frank “Buckeye” Campbell and American Holly. They all lived together in Butler, Tenn., while his dad, Charles, served in the Army. When the TVA dam was built and Butler was flooded, they relocated to Elizabethton. He knew that life was hard and there was nothing you could do about certain things.
Daddy was full of life stories. He would tell his stories with lively words and animated expressions. His large, strong hands were waving like a band director while he talked. Daddy would usually express his opinion at the end of his story and what lesson he had learned. He wanted to share his experiences especially if it helped somebody else who would listen.

A person can create a visual picture with words. Some people use a pencil and it’s black and white. Daddy used all the watercolors in the world. Daddy was a jack of all trades and had many different jobs throughout his entire life. He was a roamer who loved being around people and listening to country music. He also loved trying out any type of instrument just to see if he could master it. He enjoyed playing his guitars, banjos, harmonica and fiddle.

Daddy tried to be the best son, brother, husband, parent and friend that he could be. He knew everybody had faults including him. Daddy helped so many people in their daily lives with no one knowing about it. Daddy had a hard shell with an incredibly tender heart.

He believed, as we all should, that God is in control of everything. Have faith in Him and always keep trying to move forward.
Graveside services were held at Batley Cemetery in Oak Ridge, Tenn., on January 22, 2021.

A man who knew the importance of family. A true family man, a husband, a father, a brother, a grandfather, a great grandfather, holding as well as many other family titles. He was a patriarch of the family, one who loved each of his family members greatly, showing each a special kind of unconditional love, that made certain there wasn’t a doubt and/or a limit to how much he loved and cared for them.

A man of wisdom and a firm believer in prayer. He was a man who believed in forgiveness and giving the benefit of doubt. A listener, one who truly analyzed your words and feelings, yet a speaker and advisor of situational and life circumstances, giving sound advice, encouragement, and the wisdom of life, that he had gained through his years on earth, through his love and choice of words spoken.

A man of love, first and foremost for his Lord and Shepherd, the King of Kings, and the one and only true living God. Holding the love, he had for his family only second to God. Love for each that he considered a friend and for each person he encountered in his walk-through life. Love for his country and the freedoms it offers, and for the peace he felt while fishing and riding his Harley Davidson.

A proud man, proud of all his accomplishments in life, but most of all, of his family and the people in it. He was a man that prided himself that through the grace of God, all his family knew Jesus and were firm in their beliefs. Giving God the glory and thanking God for the blessing of allowing him to be the one selected to be in each of his family members life.

Patrick Carl Wilkins was a man of many great characteristics and traits, but most importantly he is a man that will be forever missed and loved.
