Eric James Brewer, 43, of Moab, passed away suddenly and peacefully on Saturday, October 15, 2016.

Eric was born on February 5, 1973, in Durango, Colorado, the son of Ron and Linda Brewer. The Brewer family moved to Moab in 1979, where they stayed and raised their family. Eric graduated from Grand County High School in 1992 and later attended Universal Technical Institute in Arizona to pursue a career he enjoyed in auto/truck mechanics and was employed as an equipment operator at the Grand County Road Department.

He was honored to be a member of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers group and proudly called the members his family. He served in various leadership capacities with the Red Rock 4-Wheelers, always eager to help when needed, but his favorite role was that of a Scholarship Selection Committee member.

Eric was a Green Bay Packers fan and his hobbies included movies, reading, model cars and working on broken cars at the 3rd South shop with Pops and Kevin, but his true love was the time he spent with his family and friends.

Eric married Kama (Carroll) in 1999 and they had two daughters: McKinsey, 16, and Ryanna, 12. He adored his girls and supported them by attending their softball and soccer games, as well as 4-H, school and other activities.

He is survived by his daughters McKinsey and Ryanna; parents Ron and Linda Brewer; sister Karisa (Anthony) Alvey and family (Cale, Morgan and Maddie); and his lifelong friend Kevin Dull and his family. He was preceded in death by grandparents Jerry and Mary Poteet; and Harvey and Irene Brewer; and by his uncle Mike Poteet.

A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, October 22, at 11 a.m. at the Moab Baptist Church on Kane Creek Boulevard, with Pastor Howe officiating. Friends and family are invited to attend a viewing on Friday, October 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Spanish Valley Mortuary. Family members have requested that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a scholarship fund for Eric’s girls at Eastern Utah Community Credit Union.
