Tom (Thomas William) Brewster, also known as “TB,” 76, of Madison, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 31, 2018, surrounded by his family. Tom was born on August 3, 1942, and lived in Madison most of his life. To sum it up, Tom loved big and he loved true.
He is survived by his wife, Kim Brewster; sister, Judith Brewster; son Richard Wilson and his wife Tonya; horse show daughter, Carrie Morrison and granddaughter, Paisley, who referred to him as “Gampa.”
Tom was preceded in death by his parents, William and Helen Brewster.
Tom was an avid dog lover who had many dogs through the years. Most people can remember Tom leaving his truck run at the horse shows so his dogs could enjoy the air conditioning on a hot summer day. I am sure his dog companions such as Honey, Baby, Punky, Cruiser, Harley, and Madison are happy to be reunited with him. Dog, Tom’s most recent companion will greatly miss him and the endless time they spent together these last couple years.
Tom was a dedicated horseman the received his first training horse in 1961. He began his horse career as a member of the Lucky Horseshoes 4-H Club. He touched several lives and will be greatly missed in the horse community. Tom’s infamous gruff personality surrounded his forgiving and kind heart. He was a demanding coach that knew how to get the most out of each of his students. A few of Tom’s most successful and favorite horses include Two Bits, GM Elegant Mac, Along Came James, Boppin N Black, A Fancy Hotrodder, Outlaws Payday, and Finders Keepers.
Tom was known for his “stylish” trucks and his unique choice in clothing and shoes. If he wasn’t wearing his classic white t-shirt and starched jeans, he was probably sporting a bright color, for example orange cowboy boots or different colored shoe laces.
Most people probably didn’t know that Tom played the piano, served in the Military, spent a few winters in Florida where he fell in love with Sharkey’s, and enjoyed riding his Ultra Classic Harley Davidson.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the American Legion Post 112, 6671 Middle Ridge Rd., Madison, OH, 44057, from 2:00 PM until 7:00 PM. Family, friends, and others whose lives Tom touched are invited so share stories and memories.
Contributions in memory of Tom may be given to Kim to establish a Memorial Saddle Fund to be given or auctioned off at a later date.
