Giles is still one of the most kind, hard working, and ready to have a good time people we have ever known. We always think of you when we see a cherry wheat beer and are playing corn hole under the ‘stadium lights’. We cannot put into words how much you will be missed. All our hugs, prayers and thoughts are with you, Jen, and the rest of the family. ❤️

I always knew Giles as one of the hardest working, caring, most ethical and loving people I've met. He not only got things done, he got them done right. My thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy go out to all who knew him and all who love him.

To Jen and the Brooks family-
Our hearts are broken with the loss of Giles. He was our anchor at Beacon Cove. Always a very clear thinker with just the right answers. We can’t tell you how much we enjoyed him and loved his smile. May GOD bless you and may Giles rest in peace. Monica and Glenn Voorhess

Despite the unfortunate sequence of events and circumstances, Giles wouldn't of had it any other way. Every one has been more than accommodating and available for our family i can't begin to have the words to thank you all. He loved what he did, and I'm just so glad he had the family and friends to help support these past few days. I've grown to have a deeper love and understanding in regards to being his son. I know this is going to be extremely hard so thank you to everyone for the support. And please if you can make it, come as you are. Most of all Stay Safe and God bless.

The sweetest memory I’ll forever share and cherish of Mr Brooks, when he got the first look of Russ on his wedding day. It was something truly special and heart warming, you could feel the love. Seeing him cry and hug his son on his special day was the sweetest thing. You can tell how much he loves his son and I’m so sad that I didn’t get to have a chance to know him more, but I know his memory will forever live on through his children. RIP Mr Brooks
