He leaves to cherish his memory one son, Furman Frederick Brewer of Pembroke; one daughter, Benita Tipton (Danny) of Fuquay Varina; one grandson, Tyler F. Brewer; and a host of family and friends.
Furman was a 1961 graduate of Pembroke State College and began teaching at the East Carolina Indian School in Clinton, NC that same year. He continued his career in education with the Public Schools of Robeson County with more than 32 years of service. Furman was a world traveler, an avid hunter, and lover of birds, evidenced by his extensive pigeon collection. His good sense of humor, jovial personality, and homemade peanut brittle would put a smile on your face. Furman enjoyed singing in the Adult Choir at Berea Baptist Church and was often referred to as "Faithful Furman".
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the Adult Choir at Berea Baptist Church, Pembroke, NC.
