Bob (Robert) Brooks, surrounded by loving family members, lost his battle with cancer at the age of 70 on November 10, 2017. Bob was born on March 13, 1947 in Calgary, Alberta Canada. He grew up in Oregon and graduated from Park Rose High School in 1965.

In the late 1970's he found a new home in Juneau, Alaska, where he spent roughly 30 years and eventually retired from the City and Bureau of Juneau as the senior purchaser.

Some of Bob's favorite things was spending time with family, shopping for deals at local stores, finding a new mask to wear every Halloween and telling jokes.

Bob is survived by his children Linda Spainhower, Justin Brooks, Jeremy Brooks and their spouses; and 9 grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Marni Warren.
