Obituary of Jeffrey Luke Brooks

Jeffrey Luke Brooks was born on December 16, 1974 in Monroe, Michigan. He was one of five children born from the union of his parents: James Brooks and Linda (Brodie) Brooks. He received his education at Mason High School.

Jeff was a hard worker and had his own business for a short while where he repaired and installed gutters.  In 2002, he was blessed with a son: Dilllan Brooks who became his whole world. He was a devoted father who loved and cared for his son in every possible way.

He enjoyed taking trips up North and spending time with his friends and family. He was a social butterfly and was generous and kind, making it very easy for him to make lasting friendships. He loved working on small engines, going to auctions and garage sales to add to his collections.

Jeffrey was a rare individual with a big heart and was always willing to help others. He was the best father, son, brother and friend anyone could ask for and his generous nature will be missed by everyone who knew him.
