This is a time in my life when I can not express all that I feel because of the sadness in my heart. I know we had many great times together and a few that were not so good . We always let the good out weigh the bad. I will keep everything going until the Lord comes for me. Love you Dad.

Scott,
I only got to know you a few weeks before Chris Jr. And Cora’s wedding. But you impacted our lives in a big way. From our few short encounters, I quickly saw that you were a kind, loving, loyal, generous, and gentle man. You loved your family more than life itself and would have clearly done anything for Cora. I could see that Cora meant the world to you in the days before her wedding and especially at the wedding. You treated my family like your family, and I was looking forward to fishing with you soon, as an invite to go fishing with you was some of your last words to me. I believe we would have developed a great friendship as we watched our kids and grandson start their family and grow. I will make this promise to you, I will be here for Chris Jr., Cora, and Kaedyn in every way for as long as I live. Don’t catch all the fish in Heaven, one day we will get that fishing trip in. Rest In Peace brother.

I am going to miss you so much Scott (Dad). Having you in my life since I was little was a blessing. I will always cherish all the memories we had together. All the fishing trips at the lake, driving and sleeping in that big blue truck. Dancing and listening to music together. The long talks generally about nothing and just life. You were a great man to all around you and a great daddy to your girls. You did a great job raising them. You were always there for me no questions asked and always treated me as your own. I love you Dad and I am going to miss you so much.

Scott,

You were one of the best people that came in to my life and I would never change that for anything in this world. You were one type of person that you don't see a lot of anymore. Your out going personally, the loving person that you are. If some one needed something and you had it, you didn't care if you had to do with out you would give it to them to help them out. You always helped out everyone else and always worried about your self last. You are gone now but you will never and I mean never before gotten

Fly high with the Angel's that you deserve to be with high in the sky.

Love JUSTIN ROBERTSON

Biography

“Seeing is believing.” For many, those words simply represent a motto. But for Jeffrey Scott Brooks, it summarized in every way who he was. He was modest, quiet and observant, taking in everything around him and always thinking before acting. He was a realist, someone who was practical in everything he did. He was a friendly & gentle person who truly cared about those around him.

Jeffrey “Scott” Brooks was born on March 7, 1962, in Comal County, Texas, his father, George, was 24 and his mother, Dixie, was 24. He had two brothers Steve & John. As a child, he learned to be conscientious, responsible and caring. These were all traits that he would carry with him throughout his life. Scott was always aware of how others around him felt and this quality served him well. With a deep capacity to tolerate the feelings of others, Scott was generally able to avoid conflicts. It seemed as if Scott was the family member who was always working to keep stress at bay. Preferring a quiet environment.

In his younger years (age 0 to 6) He lived in New Braunfels, Grand Prairie, Fort Worth, Dallas & Cleburne, All in Texas. At age six(1968), he started first grade at Irving Elementary in Cleburne Texas. Before the year was out, in December 1968, his family moved to Duncanville, Texas. Here he spent the rest of his childhood & teenage years, graduating from Duncanville high school in 1980. Through this time he enjoyed, Swimming, Fishing, Camping & anything else that had to do with the outdoors. He spent many evenings outside with all the neighborhood kids. He played Baseball for several years. There were many camping & fishing trips to the Brazos River & Lake Whitney. Scott and his siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up but they deeply cared for each other and shared many life experiences over the years. Growing up, Scott was one of those children who didn’t need to be in the center of a whirlwind of activity. He was content to entertain himself. Scott was never pushy when it came to games and other activities, but rather, he was able to enjoy the pure fun these could bring.

In his 20's, he learned to dance & was pretty good at it. The early 80's were spent having fun with friends & family. In 1985 he married Anna Maria Mata in June 1985, in Duncanville, Texas. They had two daughters during their marriage. Cindi, the oldest & Kristina & gained two more daughters after the marriage Cassie & Cora. Scott was a good father to his children. During this time he started a new career as a machinist. He used this career to support his family until the day that he died. There was never anything more important to, or that he was more proud of than his family.

During Scott’s life he touched many people. Scott was a trustworthy, pragmatic and sympathetic person, the kind of man to whom everyone was drawn. He was one of the kindest & gentlest people you would ever meet, Never met a stranger, Would always give you the shirt off his back, Willing to help anyone in need. He loved camping out, or just gathering around the fire with friends. He loved the water & loved camping and fishing on the lake or river. He will be missed greatly by his friends and family. Thank you Scott for being in our lives.
