Little Bud loved to make people laugh, never met a stranger, loved to hunt, and drive his clean truck, but most of all he loved his family. From the time he could talk, Brooks, also known as Brovie, always said he wanted to go to heaven. He attended Hot Springs Baptist and LakePointe churches. Brooks spent most of his time working or hanging out with family and friends. He loved driving downtown and going up to West Mountain to have talks with God while listening to country music. Brooks was very protective and always wanted to make sure his family and friends were safe and taken care of. He was strong, kind, wise, joyful and loving.
