William Brooks Sr. Obituary

William Thomas Brooks Sr. of Norman, Oklahoma, passed away from this life to begin his next great journey beyond on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, at the age of 85. William was born in Reardon, Washington, on December 13, 1938. He was the son of Harold E. and Patricia (Brown) Brooks, both of whom preceded him in death. He is also preceded by his wife of 44 years, Glendell Brooks, his son, Hal Brooks, and one sister, Mary Brooks.

He leaves three children to cherish his memory, Nita Jackson, William Thomas Brooks Jr. and his wife Becky, and Samuel Brooks and his wife Shelly, along with his sister, Patty Brooks, numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and many other loved ones.

Having had a mechanical aptitude from the time he was very young, William served his country as an instrument repairman in the Navy. He worked incredibly hard for what he had, always a wonderful and dedicated provider for his family. Family was everything to William. He was a devoted and loving husband and father who wanted nothing but the best for the people he loved.

Not only did William work hard, but he liked to play hard as well. His many passions and interests brought him such joy in his free time. He enjoyed golfing, bowling, hunting, fishing, and most of all, music. William’s love for music was just as vibrant as his personality. He loved hosting get-togethers with friends and family, where they enjoyed playing music, jamming out, and basking in the good vibes, and best of all, the great company. William lived his life well. He will be very deeply missed by all those whose lives he made better.
