Harold Milton Brooks
It is with sadness in our hearts on June 9, 2018, Harold Milton Brooks went to the lord. At the age of 72, Harold passed away at his home in Fairmont Hot Springs BC, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born August 2, 1945 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the eldest of four children of the late Shirley and Jack Brooks, predeceased by his nephew David Chubak and grandson Mathew Ridge.
Harold was an icon in the construction world, hard working, creative, detailed, and passionate. His number one passion was family, he was committed through thick and thin despite the challenges. A man you could count on, a man of his word, a man of honour, instilling his values in his family.
Harold is survived by his wife Jean Brooks, their joined family of 7 children; Trezlie, David (Genvieve), Carmel (Anton), Teresa (Mike), Tammie (Daryl), Hi (Gail), and Fiona, their 19 grandchildren; Ryan and Zane, Christopher and Michael, Curtis and Derek, Justin, Becca, Sam, and Joe, Blake, Mitchell and Alix, Jack and Kate, Brylee, Aiden, Kiah and Jorja, and 7 great-grandchildren; Kaidyn, Dravyn, Saxyn, Matyx, Bodene, Radek, and Sammy, his brother Tom (Colleen), sisters Jackie, and Emmarie (Joe).
Forever loved and missed.
