Gordon “Gordie” Albert Brooks

Gordon “Gordie” Albert Brooks

January 08, 1932 ~ March 04, 2021

Gordon (Gordie) Albert Brooks was born January 8, 1932 to Arthur and Elanor Brooks in North Adams, Massachusetts. After high school, Gordon joined the Navy and served for 4 years. When he was discharged from the Navy he then moved to Flint Michigan and went to work for General Motors where he retired after 32 years. Gordon then moved to Daytona Beach Florida where he worked part time for Don Bell Signs and became a member of Saint Paul’s Catholic Church.

Gordon was the type of man that always had to be doing something. He had a lawn service around his neighborhood and was very good with wood working and made many different beautiful things for people to display in their yards or in the home. Everyone that knew Gordon loved him, he was such a wonderful man, husband, father and friend. He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers, Roger, Donald, Kenny and Robert (Bob) Brooks. Gordon is survived by his wife of 22 years, Penny Brooks, daughter Kelly Kietzman (Kenneth), stepdaughter Penny Mosley, stepson Alfred Mosley (Rhonda), stepson Steven Mosley (Barbara) as well as three grandchildren, two great grandchildren and many other family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Gordon’s honor to Halifax Health Hospice.

Due to the Corona Virus there will be a private service for family at a later date.

God bless my dear brother in law he was a wonderful husband to my sister and a good stepfather to her children. Gordon sure did fit into our large family and our mother loved him like a son. My husband Dan and I will miss our visits with him and Penny the visits will continue of course but something will be missing.
But in time we will heel. At least we know he is no longer suffering.
God also bless my dear sister Penny in this time of need.

Yes Gordon was a special person. He was a great neighbor to us always there for us with whatever we needed. We will surely miss his delicious cooking especially at Christmas time when he made Buckeyes. When he knew we were going camping he would make us delicious Zucchini bread. That’s a great picture of him. He will surely be missed by all of us! We miss not seeing him on carport waving at everyone that came by and tooted at him. We were blessed to know you Gordon and to have you for a next door neighbor! We love and miss you Gordon! Butch and Linda

So very sorry to hear of the passing of Gordon. Though we haven’t seen him in many years we always remember him being a very hard worker and he made the best homemade sausage!! Our hearts and prayers go out to the whole family, especially Kelly.

We have so many memories of gatherings at Aunt Penny and Uncle Gordon’s house. Uncle Gordy always had the best recipes. We will miss uncle Gordy, however we find some comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain. Our hearts and prayers go out to Aunt Penny.

I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of Uncle Gordon. I’ll always remember going to Aunt Penny and Uncle Gordon’s house for buckeyes during the holidays. Sending lots of love to Aunt Penny.

We are grateful we have had the best neighbors someone can ever ask! Gordie and Penny became family to us from the moment we met them. Gordie was always ready to help us in anything he could. His pumpkin bread and peanut butter pie were the best! Gordie showed us that the simple things in life can make you happy like how he loved to take care of his plants! His faith was unwavering! We loved to see him sitting on his porch waiving at us every time we saw him! We knew the weather was nice when he was outside! We miss you and love you dearly Gordie! We know you are watching over Penny.
Love,
Enrico, Nanette, Enrico Jr. and Felipe Paredes
