MINNEAPOLIS - Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, January 4, 2014 at Messiah Church (LSS - Center for Changing Lives), 2400 Park Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN. Brian's spirit took flight on Christmas morning. He is survived by loving wife Pomn and preceded in death by mother Marvel, father Harold, and sister Kay. Carrying on the family story are son Olaf Brooks, daughters Kjersti, and Layla, grandchildren Adia and Kyler, and brothers Donald, and Bruce.

Brian was born in Willmar, MN on November 11, 1952, was confirmed at Svea Lutheran Church and remained a committed Christian thereafter. Graduate of Willmar High and Mankato State. He pursued careers in construction and restaurant management. Post age fifty, he taught English, holding positions in Thailand and China. He had a passionate concern for social and economic justice; lover of nature, crosswords, the Twins and rock and roll. It amazed us how Brian became the physical reminder of the father that he was so proud of. Blessed be his memory.
