  2. To the entire Brooks family: I am so deeply sorry for the loss of Denny, very heartbreaking news to learn of and my heart goes out to Deb, his children and the Brooks family. I have known him since I was a child and in my adult life was able to rekindle with this family. Denny was one of the most loving, kind and generous men I had the privilege of knowing and made such an impact on the lives of those who knew him. I have many fond memories of him, his gentle nature shall be missed. May the family find peace and comfort in his loss in all their memories. I loved this man as well as the family that he is surrounded by. Rest In Peace Denny; you will be missed………………..

  6. Just now learned the sad news, I worked with Denny and he always had a kind word to make the work day a little brighter. His love for his wife and family is an inspiration. I last ran into him in an antique shop in Cadillac,
    he was with his wife and daughter. He told me there is nothing more
    important than family, and the sooner you could spend more time with them the better. I will always remember Denny.
