Bishop Ryan Catholic School mourned the loss of Chris Brewer on January 22, 2023, a respected coach and teacher who passed away tragically and unexpectedly, leaving behind grieving family members. Christopher Brewer, 41, passed away due to injuries he acquired in an automobile accident close to Velva, North Dakota.
The funeral visitation will take place at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Karlsruhe, North Dakota, on January 26, 2023, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Everyone, including Brewer’s students, friends, and family, is missing him and using their social media to share memories of him, tributes, and condolences.
“We will recall Chris’ joyful laugh, quiet reverence, and loyal devotion to our country as we work through the pain of losing him. His calling was to love his neighbor, and we’ll continue doing that in his memory.
Please remember Tristan, Erica, Hope, and the Brewer family in your prayers. Give him eternal rest, Lord, and grant him unending illumination.”
Chris graduated from Fairview High School in 2013 after completing his studies there. He was a standout football player while he was a student at Fairview, and in 2012, he played for the school’s second-place football team.
Being a man of faith, he recognized an opportunity to allow God to use him to lead students to Christ daily. He pushed, challenged, and loved them both in his classroom and on the court.
The people who answer the call to become coaches and teachers are incredible. They devote their efforts to inspiring children to do their best, and at Bishop Ryan, they give their all to assisting our children—including Christopher Brewer—in entering Heaven.
