Jackie Morris Brooks, 80, of Decatur, Texas, left this earth Monday, June 12, 2023. A memorial service will be held Monday, June 26, at 2 p.m. at Decatur Church of Christ, officiated by Gerre Joiner. Visitation will be one hour prior, at 1 p.m., also at the church.
Jack worked for 42 years as an elevator mechanic for Otis, Montgomery, Kone and Fort Worth Elevator, a company owned by his father-in-law who taught Jack the elevator trade. He supported his wife’s love of horses and barrel racing, spending many weekends hauling horses to equestrian events and was a favorite “gate man” at barrel races in Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.
He was an avid sportsman, playing football in high school and college and later baseball. He loved golf, travel, and dominoes. He could fix anything and didn’t have an off button. He was generous with his time, always busy helping friends and family, working on trucks, tractors, mowers, anything mechanical, as well as his and Sharon’s home property in Decatur. He had just mowed a neighbor’s property the morning that he died.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents, “Snookie” and Barbara Brooks of Wichita Falls; his brother, Larry Brooks of Burleson; and Jack and Sharon’s son, Robert Kevin Brooks of Fort Worth.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sharon Brooks of Decatur; his niece Paulette Brooks Watson of Sarasota, Florida; his nephew, Alex Walton of Euless, Texas; and cousin, Jody Fairman of Krum, Texas.
He was a lifelong follower of Jesus Christ.
