He was born April 27, 1924, in Farmington, the son of the late Grant Brooks and Stella Wolf Brooks.

Bob was hit by a streetcar when he was a little boy, which left him mentally handicapped, but he still enjoyed life. He was a Christian and loved going to church and singing songs about Jesus.

He attended Farmington Grade School and enjoyed family gatherings, working jigsaw puzzles, going to fairs and shopping with his brothers-in-law.

He is survived by two brothers, Dale Brooks and wife Wanda, of Big Mill Fall Run, and Jerry Lee Brooks and wife Pat of Goose Creek, S.C.; four sisters, Maxine McDonald of Bridgeport, Betty Lou Hepler of Big Mill Fall Run, Doris Hensley and husband Lou of Fairmont, and Barbara Korsh and husband Paul of Farmington; and sister-in-law, Gaylene Brooks of Worthington.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Bill Brooks and Lester Eugene Brooks, as well as one sister, Pauline Brooks.

Friends may call at the Hutson Funeral Home in Farmington from 4-9 p.m. today and from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday. Funeral services will be held in the funeral home at 1 p.m. Thursday with Pastor Betty Jones officiating. Interment will be in the Grandview Memorial Gardens in Fairmont.
