He married Corliss Dooley on October 6, 1979, in Freeman, South Dakota. They lived in Yankton for six years after their marriage until Bob built their house in Utica, South Dakota. He worked for manufacturers all over the Yankton area and was very proud that he worked in every aspect of manufacturing. From drafting, to aggregate, to engineering, to application, to sales, Bob did it all. He was most recently employed at Masaba in Vermillion.

Bob was a hardworking problem solver who was very handy and could build just about anything. He built his home and wooden boats, and also rebuilt cars. He even designed and invented tools to help him fix machinery at work or racecars and equipment at home. He loved racing, especially with his son, Adam. He was a great dad and loved his kids more than life.

Survivors include his wife, Corliss Brewer of Utica; two children: Adam Brewer of Bloomfield, New Mexico and Caitlyn Brewer of Utica; brother, Jim (Sandy) Brewer of Yankton; sister, JoAnn (Robert) Ebbesen of Bismarck, North Dakota; sister-in-law, Kathy Brewer of Yankton; and many nieces and nephews.
