David Lee Brooks, 80, of Madison, Alabama passed away December 25, 2020.
David Lee Brooks started his career at just 15 years of age and joined the Marine Corp, where he served for 2 years, and decided to transfer to the Navy to serve 4 more years. One detail that he was proud of was that he was assigned captain of one of President Eisenhower’s personal yachts on the Potomac River. Since he grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, there was no other that could navigate the Potomac River as David Brooks.
He was a man of many interests, which included a boat captain, commercial fisherman, teacher, historian, stamp collector, antique clocks, geology, entomology, antiques, cars, motorcycles, cooking, restaurant owner, and more. A comment heard more than once, “The most interesting man alive”.
After retirement from the Somerset County Courthouse, MD. and living in Princess Anne, MD, David decided to move south to Madison, Al., to be with his daughter, Lynda Lacroix.
David Lee Brooks is survived by his daughter Lynda Lacroix, son-in-law Gordon Lacroix, grandson, Zachary Buckley, son, Christopher Brooks, daughter-in-law Kat Brooks, grandchildren, Chase and Kara, son, David Brooks Jr., granddaughter, Courtney Frazier, husband Chris Frazier, great grandchildren, Presley and John.
David Lee Brooks may god bless your soul, we love you and we will miss you!
