This announcement comes with a heavy heart. David Jon Brouwer lost his long battle with lung cancer on June 2, 2020. David was a gentle soul and a hard worker. He took pride in everything he did. He owned the C C Cafe in the Grand Rapids, MI county/city building for more than 20 years. David had many friends and acquaintances throughout his life, and was best known for his love of music and animals. On June 25, 2009 he married Robin Karell. Proceeded in death by his parents Donald and Ann (Leetsma) Brouwer. David will be lovingly remembered by his wife and many, including his siblings Ronald and Beverly Brouwer of Greer, South Carolina, Thomas Brouwer of Kalamazoo, MI, Steven Brouwer of Grand Rapids, MI and Renee and James VanderWerf of Kentwood, MI. There will be a private memorial held to celebrate David's life at a later date.

To my dearest, I knew when our eyes first locked... you were the one.

And when we began talking drums and music, you had were the one.

As for that quick were the one.

We took our time and did things were the one.

We enjoyed 4 wheeling in your Jeep in your old stomping were the one.

You were always the perfect gentleman to were the one.

I will NEVER forget the time on Valentine's Day you ordered the barbershop quartet to come serenade me at work with roses and were the one.

All the long walks, your love for all sentient beings, your gentle soul... you were the one.

You have always been behind me with my goals in were the one.

My heart is breaking, but I take comfort in the fact that in the end you did it your way, at home, in bed with me holding your hand with our four-legged family surrounding us.

I always knew you were the one.
