NEWFANE- Norman Brooks died Thursday, December 12, after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Brooks was well known for his immaculate lawns and the perfectly stacked woodpile that ran the entire length of his property. Mr. Brooks worked in the automotive parts industry all his life, and was the founder of Brooks Oil Undercoating, which is run by his son, Tom. He was a lifelong member of the NewBrook Fire Department, and a 32nd degree Mason and a Cairo Shriner.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Barbara (Stacey), and three children, Thomas (Kendra) of Brookline; Dawn McCormick, of Marlboro; and Amanda (Robert) North, of West Dover. He was predeceased by two daughters, Kimberly and Jennifer. Mr. Brooks is survived by 14 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, a sister, Dorothy (Lester), of Parrish, FL, and one brother, Thomas, of Brattleboro.

Funeral service will be held at the Newfane Congregational Church on Friday, December 20, at 2 pm, followed by a reception at the NewBrook Firehouse. Donations can be made in his name to the church, fire department, or Grace Cottage Hospital. The family wishes to thank Dr. Robert Backus and staff.
