Levelland Fire Chief laid to rest after losing battle with cancer

LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) - The Levelland Volunteer Fire Department Chief of eight years lost his battle to cancer July 3. Chief Marvin Brewer, 51, was laid to rest Thursday, July 8 at 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church Levelland. He was the father of three young children.

Brewer served on the department for more than 30 years. He began his career in 1977 as a volunteer. Two years later, he became a paid firefighter and was promoted to assistant fire chief in 1984. In 2001, he was appointed as the fire chief.

He was diagnosed February 1 with glioblastoma, a grade 4 tumor, that affected his speech and movements. Despite radiation and chemotherapy treatments, Brewer continued to go to his office at the department everyday for a few hours to oversee his staff and the daily operations.

Memorial donations may be made to the Levelland Volunteer Fire Department and the Matthew C. Thetford Scholarship Fund. Both are at 502 Ave. F. Donations may also be made to the American Cancer Society.
