Obituary of Richard Ryan Brewer, Jr.

MOHAWK - Our charismatic and beautiful son and brother, Richard “Richie” Ryan Brewer, Jr., of State Route 28, passed away unexpectedly, on Thursday, February 13, 2020, while working in his field of masonry and construction in Albany, New York. Richie was born on September 13, 2000, at St. Luke’s Hospital, Town of New Hartford, New York and was raised with love and compassion. Richie had it all: Intelligence, confidence, athletic ability, height, beautiful eyes, broad smile, fantastic wit, sensitivity and the ability to engage and forge a relationship with anyone. He was a graduate of Central Valley Academy ‘Class of 2018’ and attended Herkimer County BOCES where he concentrated on heavy equipment operation. He was currently employed with KM Masonry, Greenfield Center, New York, as a masonry worker. We loved Richie with all our hearts and fondly reflect upon his passion for hunting and animals. With his seemingly endless positive traits, he had the potential to be anything. Yet, his greatest hope and aspiration eventually someday revolved around becoming a farmer. Richie was a solid student and accomplished athlete, especially having excelled in football, a video gamer through and through and a very likeable young man. We love you and miss you dearly Richie. Beloved and cherished by his family: his mother and father, Amanda and Joe Arndt, of Mohawk; and his father Richard R. Brewer, Sr., of Ilion; two brothers, Mitchell and Justin Arndt, of Mohawk; his sister, Brittany Brewer, of Ilion; his grandparents, Phyllis and Jim Brewer, of Ilion, Lori Croniser and Jack Hall, of Mohawk, Jim Arndt and Audrey Grower, of St. Johnsville, Fred and Kelli Croniser, of Port Leyden and Francis Young, of Mohawk; his girlfriend, Paige Prusakowski, of Mohawk; his best friend, Tristan Williams, of Mohawk; and many friends, aunts, uncles and cousins that he loved. He also is survived by his beloved dog and fondly referred to as his son, “Gunner”. Funeral services for Richie will be held on Monday, February 17, 2020, at 7:00 PM, at the Enea & Ciaccia Family Funeral Home, 4309 Acme Road, in Ilion, New York, with Rev. Brian Engel, officiating.
