ROBERT BREWSTER, age 82, of Springfield, Ohio passed away peacefully Sunday March 5, 2023. He was born May 24, 1940 in Dayton, Ohio, the son of Ralph and Katherine Brewster. Bob graduated from Chaminade High School of Dayton, Ohio in 1958. He was a long-time resident of Vandalia, Ohio and later moved to Springfield after building a Log Home.

Bob loved camping during fall leaf season in the Smoky Mountain National Park and riding around in his Corvette to play tennis with community friends. He loved Cincinnati Bengals and OSU football. Bob is survived by his wife, Myrna Jean Brewster; daughter, Kim (Eric) Oberly of Maryland, and son, Scott (Lori) Brewster of Campbellsville KY; grandchildren Josh and Jason Oberly.
