Not sure what to say?

I've been great friends with Marcus Brooks' son and his family since 1987 and have been privileged to have been regaled with much of his history and attributes. On the occasions we have joined with him at Mark and Janet's home, he was truly as remarkable as we were led to believe. As a vet, there was an instant brotherhood, and as a human being, he was an instant friend. What a joy to have known such a fine man.

I didn't get to see Uncle Mark as often as I liked but when I did I really enjoyed his stories. He will be missed.

A wonderful, caring friend for many years. Always cheerful and upbeat. He will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to have had Mark as a friend.

I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Brooks on several occasions by association with his son Mark and daughter-in-law Janet. He was always such a pleasure; a true gentleman. I know he will be missed by many and his legacy will live on in his children and grand-children.

What a wonderful, energetic, caring friend and neighbor. Here's to celebrating his very full life. Love to Rose and the family... The Boarts Family

Every time I saw Uncle Mark, he had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. He will be missed. Prayers for you all during this difficult time.

What a wonderful Uncle! Hope you enjoy the picture from the old days!

A fun memory with brother-in-law, Bob, nephew, Steve, Mark and little Mark?
