John Wil­liam Brew­ster, age 29, of Fair­fax, VA, died on July 21, 2017, in a com­mer­cial shing ac­ci­dent at sea, in Prince Wil­liam Sound, Alaska.

John Brew­ster was born in Mor­ris­town, NJ and lived his early years in Ch­ester, NJ. In 2000, John moved with his fam­ily to Fair­fax Sta­tion, VA. John was very ac­tive in Scout­ing and earned his Ea­gle Scout award in 2004. He at­tended W.T. Wood­son High School and Church of the Apos­tles Angli­can in Fair­fax, VA. In 2011, John grad­u­ated from Ge­orge Ma­son Univer­sity with a B.A. de­gree in Eco­nom­ics.

John was a moun­taineer, mariner, sher­man, en­tre­pre­neur, and ad­ven­turer. His life was al­ways driven by the next ad­ven­ture and his love for the out­doors, which brought him to many coun­tries across the world, shar­ing his hu­mor, wild spirit, and joy with peo­ple wher­ever he went. John was an avid reader, and a stu­dent of lit­er­a­ture and phi­los­o­phy. He ac­tively ex­plored and wrote about so­ci­o­log­i­cal the­ory and frame­works, and how peo­ple im­prove com­mu­nity in their lives. He was kind, com­pas­sion­ate, and re­silient, and brought warmth and hap­pi­ness to every­one he was with.

John’s love for ad­ven­ture and the out­doors led him to Alaska, where he found home amongst ocean, wilder­ness, and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

John is sur­vived by his par­ents Brad and Tr­ish Brew­ster of Fair­fax, VA, brothers Mark Brew­ster and Thomas Brew­ster, and sis­ter El­iz­a­beth Brew­ster. In lieu of ow­ers, con­tri­bu­tions may be made to: St. Ni­cholas Chil­dren’s Home (Kenya), Church of the Apos­tles Angli­can, 3957 Pen­der Dr., #100, Fair­fax, VA 22030.
