Billy Brewer


I grew up in a small eastern North Carolina town and that’s what made me love Oakwood. I don’t think I’ll ever leave it because you have that strong sense of community that you feel in a small town. When I was growing up, if I did something inappropriate out in public, it wasn’t just my parents who would reprimand me. It was my next door neighbor. “Billy Boy, you shouldn’t be doing that. I don’t want to have to tell your momma.” I think that’s why Oakwood has thrived.

Billy Brewer has provided legal services to the Oakwood Revolving Fund and the purchase of the Oakwood Commons, as well as other needs over the last 30 years.
