On June 13 at 7:30 AM, the angels came and relieved Richard Brooks, 77 of Winter Springs, Florida, of his tremendous pain and suffering and took him home to be with the Lord.
Richard was born in Lancaster New Hampshire on August 18, 1934 to the late Hollis Brooks and Bernice Robinson.
Richard proudly served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam Era and retired in 1974 as a Master Chief Petty Officer.
As a young boy, Richard enjoyed hunting and fishing with his siblings in Northern New Hampshire. His love for the outdoors continued into adulthood, as he hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail with his five children, was active in the Boy Scouts as a Scout Master, and was a Mentor and head Chef at a YMCA Camp in Northern Wisconsin.
Richard was an Advisor for United People In Christ (UPIC) and was active in leading the food bank ministry at a local church.
Richard was a devout Christian and dedicated his life over the last several years to saving the lost. He always helped everyone he could and had a special place in his heart for helping widows, orphans and homeless people.
Richard is survived by his siblings; John, James, David, Peggy and Beverly; his children; Ricky, Harvey, Thor, Richard and Holly; his grandchildren; Chris, Joey, William, Marie, Marilee, Mary Jean, Naomi, Jonathan, Sara, Emily and Christy; and eight great-grandchildren.
