On Wednesday, April 25, 2013, Mr. Donald Kent Brewington received


and accepted his job assignment as a Master Gardner in God’s Heavenly Garden. We are humbly thankful and blessed that God allowed us to share His magnificent gift for 25,525 precious days.


 


Affectionately known as “Bee”, Donald was born to Mrs. Helen


Kirby Scott and the late Mr. Walter Brewington on June 7, 1943 in


Wilmington, North Carolina.  Bee was a graduate of the Williston


Industrial High School Class of 1962. He received his Professional


Meatcutting Certification from Cape Fear Technical College. Bee was


united in Holy Matrimony with Mrs. Doris Annette Harrison Brewington


for forty-seven years.  Although, Bee and Doris nurtured and tenderly


loved two handsome sons and one beautiful daughter; Bee was


a father to so many in his family, extended family and community.


 


Bee, began his professional career as a Butcher with G & H


Groceries and retired in 1994 after more than thirty years of


dedicated and faithful service.  His/ career spanned working for


Harris-Teeter, Food Lion and Sunkist Superette. After retirement, he


briefly operated “Bee’s Handyman Service”. Bee was an expert at


electrical work, carpentry, plumbing and automotive work.


 


He accepted Christ into his life and joined Mount Nebo Missionary


Baptist Church in Wilmington, North Carolina at an early age.  Bee


was a lively person, full of humor and wit. His favorite pastime was


his garden. Blessed with a green thumb, he always believed that his


tomatoes and collards were the prettiest and most abundant in town!


Bee was always full of caring and compassion. Lending a helping hand


was second nature to him, which was why he never met a stranger


and always made sure that no one ever went hungry. In his final years,


Bee became a devoted caregiver to his wife and mother but now he


rests in the eternal care of the Master.


 


The memories of Bee will forever be engraved in the hearts of his


loving and devoted wife:  Doris H. Brewington of the home; He also


leaves three children: Derrick T. Brewington (Andrea), Yolanda B.


Norwood (Israel) and Darnell K. Brewington; two grandchildren: Ashlyn


M. Brewington and Ryan M. Brewington; two sisters: Claudia Mallette


(Samuel) and Vivian Inez Lewis; two brothers: Alfred Brewington and


Herman Brewington; three aunts: Inez Merrick (Nathaniel), Viola


Hembrick (Chester) and Mae Sue Jones; six uncles: Charlie Clark


(Mattie), William Clark (Kendall), Rudolph Brewington (Judy), James


Brewington (Linda), Lawrence Brewington (Zenobia) and Ernest

Brewington; a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
