T/V Spencer Brewer Naknek, AK

From Laura T. Brewer

I want to share an update with you. My son, Spencer Brewer (Shorecrest High School Class of 2014), lost his life on June 29, 2016 doing a job he loved. He loved being at sea. He told me once that "getting underway made his heart soar".

On March 31, 2018, my son Zach and I had the privilege to be in Homer, AK to help christen the T/V Spencer Brewer, home port of Naknek, Alaska, formerly the Cross Point home port of Dillingham, Alaska.

This was Spencer’s favorite boat to work on. With a crew of eight, this vessel transports all of the frozen and canned salmon from the shallow ports of Bristol Bay to the Naknek City dock where it then gets loaded onto mainline barges to Seattle.

Spencer made a lasting impression on everyone he worked with while in Alaska.

In Spencer's 20 years with us, he lived life to its fullest. He always wanted to know about your day, gave hugs freely and was always ready to lend a hand. He is greatly missed.

We are thankful for all the work it took to make this happen and our hearts are full to know the "SPENCER BREWER" will always be at sea.

May the seas come up to meet you,
And the wind always be at your back.

What a great tribute and honor for Spencer and the Brewer Family. My thoughts will always be of Spencer and his unbridled passion about everything he did. - SC
