William Walter Brooks was a big man in stature with a heart even bigger.  William was a diligent provider and care giver especially to his mother whom he treasured and adored and would go to the end of the earth for.

William was a great son, father, husband, grandfather, and uncle anyone could ask for or imagine.  William was an avid outdoorsman as he loved fishing, hunting and just being a big old country boy at heart.  He loved coaching softball and just fraternizing with others in general..

William Walter Brooks is one of the greatest men I've ever known and he will be missed but never forgotten.
