I missed Wendell Brooks at the Revels and just recently learned of his passing. My family and friends much appreciated his work and his presence at the Revels for many years, and it was a pleasure to shake his hand in the lobby following the show. He was a wonderful man, and his was truly a beautiful life.

Wendell impressed me from the first time I met him as a fellow instructor in the Sociology Department at Cal State...'til the last time I saw him at a Revels'performance a year or so ago.
His wonderful spirit will be missed.
I'll be out of the state for his service. Would be there otherwise.

We have good memories of Wendell Brooks as our classmate at Whittier. Years later it was a real joy to see his work at Berkeley High and with the Revels. We will miss him.

My prayers and deepest sympathy go to the family. As we grieve over the loss of our beloved Wendell here on earth, the angels are rejoicing in Heaven to receive such a wonderful soul to join in their ranks. I know that my mother is in good company.

Having sung with Wendell in Revels over the years, I came to know a caring and dedicated performer. Little did I know his rich background, I know he will be missed by his wide circle of family and friends but thank you for sharing his story. I share Janet's sentiment about his new choir.

I have such wonderful memories of Mr Brooks through my high school years. He was one of those teachers who not only taught a subject, but also how to be a better person. He was a most amazing man and will be greatly missed. I lift my voice in honor of him.

Our deepest sympathy. We will be thinking of you and yours.

This ia irionic; I just pulled out my 1958 Nugget last night and noted wendels name to my wife that we used to run Varsity track at MCC and were in choir together. I knew he had gon overseas, but did not know the rest of his story about being a teacher, especially in an area (Oakland) that needed a good teacher so much. Wendel was a Good person and friend in HS, I'm sure he continued making good friends and being a great influence throughout his life. He is and will be missed. My prayers are with his wife and family, may they be proud of his full life and legacy.
