Scott Allen Brooks, 61, of Indian Trail, went to his eternal home Monday, December 9, 2019 as a result of a fatal shooting.

He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Angela (Angie McMahon) and son, Jacob. Also surviving is his twin brother David and wife, Frances, and their son, Teal, and daughter, Lauren (Brooks) Thorp and spouse, Alex. Survivers also include his mother Virginia (Jenky) Brooks and sisters Teresa Gandy and spouse, Ron, and Gina Clark and spouse, Joey. He had several nieces and nephews, many cousins, aunts and uncles.

Scott is preceded in death by his parents Calvin Teal (CT) and Frances (Pounds) Brooks.

Scott graduated from East Mecklenburg High School in 1976 and from Western Carolina University in 1980.

After meeting Scott you were considered a friend for life. He enjoyed people and loved to talk. Many of the friends he made were customers he had met along the way at Brooks' Sandwich House which he co-owns with his brother Dave, established by his father CT in 1973. Our family will cherish the stories and memories often conveyed in conversation with Scott about the diverse people he encountered at the shop.

Scott has been a member of Idlewild Baptist Church for over 35 years. He was involved in various ministries throughout the years. He loved the people there and always greeted you with a smile and a hug, both of which will be dearly missed.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, December 14 from 12:00-2:00 at Idlewild Baptist Church. A celebration of life service for Scott will take place at 2:30, followed by an extended visitation through 5:00. A graveside service will take place on Sunday, December 15 at 2:00 at Sunset Memory Gardens on Lawyers Rd, Mint Hill, NC.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Idlewild Baptist Church Building Fund, 12701 Idlewild Rd, Matthews, NC 28105 or Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte.

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

Angie, Jacob & David,
I’m so sorry for your sadness. May God wrap His loving arms around you and give you comfort and peace.
Scott was one of the first persons you saw at IBC every Sunday. You always got a greeting and a hug from him. Sometimes if you were lucky you got another hug between Sunday school and Worship. Scott was such a blessing to me. If you asked him how he was his answer was “I’m to blessed to be stressed!” Even when he had pain he still had a smile and hug for you and always wanted to know how you were.
I miss him so much but know I’ll see him again one day!
God Bless the Brooks’ family!

I grew up visiting my grandparents, David and Eloise Long who lived across the road (Highway 218) from CT and Frances and then Jenky. I met CT and Frances when they built their house. In fact my grandfather, who we call by his nickname Tip, came running at CT's call when Frances was wounded at the house so many years ago. 40 years ago I was a customer at Brooks Sandwich Shop while working in Charlotte. I always enjoyed seeing CT, he was such a charmer and a sweetheart. My grandfather always shared vegetables from his garden in exchange for great hamburgers that CT brought to the house. Scott recently brought some hamburgers over for Tip. Now I find it hard to believe that Scott has died in a senseless tragedy. I hope the family can take some comfort in knowing that father, son and mother are together forever now. Our family grieves with you. God bless you and give you peace to soothe your sorrow.

I am so thankful for Scott. He made us feel so cared for and we knew that he was our friend right from the beginning. When we were new and didn’t know everyone at the church, he communicated acceptance and encouragement to us. I felt an instant connection and appreciation for Angie because she knew what it meant to faithfully serve at the church and Scott did too. They are a blessing now and always.

Scott’s honesty, generosity and humility are already making his legacy inspirational to others. I did not know him that well, but stories of his character and faith have already impacted me and my family.

Thoughts and prayers are with you all grieving his loss.

Our prayers go out to the Brooks family in this time of great loss. I was introduced to Scott, David and their Dad 20 years ago by my good friend Mike Ferguson. Nothing compares to a Brooks cheeseburger "all the way." That is except for the warm and friendly welcome Scott & David gave you every time you walked in.

So saddened by the news I heard just today. I went to elementary school with David and Scott and also graduated East Meck with them. I have not kept in touch but see them around sometimes. This is a terrible tragedy and pray for his family.

So sorry and saddened to hear of the terrible tragedy and passing of Scott. He'd always been such a warm presence in the store when enjoying a hamburger at your iconic restaurant. Having referred many friends and visitors over the years to your wonderful restaurant, and then getting to know David, Teel and Frances through our kids baseball it has been especially tough. Words can't express my heartfelt condolences enough.
Godspeed Brooks family!
