Juwan Murphy was born June 26, 1979 in Columbus, Ohio to Paul Brewer and Emma Murphy.

Juwan was employed by Sears Logistics, Ameritech and worked in building maintenance.

From a very early age Juwan proved that still waters run deep.  He seemed to always be quietly thinking and observing until he had something that he really wanted to say and then you couldn’t keep him quiet.

One of his favorite things to do was to laugh and talk with his brothers.  It was a “special treat” to get to hear the “Brewer/ Murphy” laugh in stereo. He enjoyed sports, especially basketball and football.

He was preceeded in death by his father Paul Brewer, brothers Jermaine Murphy and Maceo Brewer ; cousins Christopher Brewer, Brian Williams, Kevin M. Williams, Kevin D. Williams, Santana Brewer and Sydney Brewer ; aunts Mable Brewer, Mary Brewer, Teresa Brewer ; uncles Lester and Kevin Wade, Grandparents Nancille & Paul Brewer and Edith and Kenneth Wade.
