Obituary of Albert Herman Brower
The Sacramento Bee 1996-12-02 OBITUARIES METRO FINAL B5Jan Ferris Bee Staff Writer THE REV. ALBERT H. BROWER HAD MISSIONARY ZEAL The Rev. Albert H. Brower will be remembered not only for spreading the word from his own pulpit, but for launching a number of churches in Northern California as a Baptist home missionary. "Al has been a real bulwark for decades," said the Rev. Gary Clements of the First Baptist Church of West Sacramento, where the late Rev. Brower served as interim pastor about nine years ago.
The Rev. Brower died Thursday at Kaiser Hospital in south Sacramento, where he also served on the Ethics Committee. He was 82. "There will be a real void in our whole fellowship," added Clements. "There was no one else like him in the Northern California area." The Rev. Brower, a native of Brainard, Minn., turned to pastoring after serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was the pastor of five churches, including his last full-time assignment at Sacramento's Colonial Baptist Church.
In 1970, he launched the Colonial Christian Academy. When he retired in 1976, the Rev. Brower became active in Western Baptist Home Missions, devoting his ministry to starting new churches. "He was committed for years and years and years. He never faltered, never wavered," said Clements. "Even in his 70s and 80s, he was still actively speaking. He would go in sometimes (as an interim pastor) and preach there for months."
Emily Stockroski, the pastor's wife of 58 years, died in 1993. The Rev. Brower is survived by his sons, Everette James of Sacramento and Eugene Albert of Fort Bragg; a daughter, Beverly Joyce Snow of Texas; 13 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Sacramento Garden Chapel Mortuary, 6100 Stockton Blvd. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the First Baptist Church of West Sacramento, 1511 Delaware Ave.
