I remember this wonderful man from so many,many years ago. Diane was one of my best friends and was we play at her place or downstairs at Gramma Andrews banging on her piano. In later years I would see Brooks and he remembered me from long ago. It was a joy to always talk with him. I so remember the Archway cookies and donuts and of course his Archway truck.Heaven has gained a wonderful man and he is with his beautiful wife now. Brooks may you rest in peace and know you will always be remembered with wonderful thoughts.

Bro. Brooks Andrews

He was a great man, and a wonderful man of God.
He served his country well, and he served God with all his heart!
I believe he touched the lives of everyone he knew. I know he touched mine.
He was always so sweet and kind, so cheerful and encouraging.
He always had a smile on his face for everyone.
He would shake my hand, and say "You know God is so good!"
Yes, God is so good Bro. Brooks, and you were such a good man of God.
You were a beautiful example of Gods love for everyone to see.
It is a blessing, and a great honor to have known you.
I love you Bro. Brooks!
God bless you always!!!
May our dear Lord bless your family, and comfort their hearts over the pain of losing you.
May they hold onto their wonderful memories of a great man of God, an awesome Grandpa, Great Grandpa, Dad, Pastor, Friend.
You were so much to so many.
You will be greatly missed, and always loved!

From one soldier to another, Thank you Brother Andrews for your service to your country and for your service to bring the word of God. Speaking with you about your time in service and your experiences with God impressed upon me to continue on my own path with God, but to also continue worshiping with the congregation at Apostolic Outreach Center. May God continue to Bless & comfort your family as they mourn your passing. Let them take great comfort at knowing you now dwell in the House of the Lord. Peace to you Brother and Peace & comfort to your family. Until we meet again, God Bless You all.

My Uncle Brooks was the salt of the earth. Growing up with him has left lasting wonderful memories of Church and holidays with my Grandma Andrews and roller skating with Him, Aunt Gloria and all my Cousins...what fun we had.
