Byron E. “By” BROOKS, 70, of Ulysses, PA, died Wednesday, December 30, 2020 in his home.
Instead of taking a sunrise snowmobile ride, By ran on streets of gold as he entered the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the morning of December 30th, 2020. By was born September 9, 1950, in Jersey Shore, PA, to E. Byron and Martha Brooks. At a young age, he realized that he was a sinner. By put his trust in Jesus Christ and His death, burial, and resurrection as payment for his sin and gift of eternal life. Eagerly and faithfully By sought to obey and please his Lord, whether it was serving others through church and camp ministries or enjoying the pleasures of spending time with family, running, coaching, woodworking, building, snowmobiling, jet-skiing, hunting, and being in the great outdoors.
He is survived by his godly parents, E. Byron and Martha Brooks of Jersey Shore; his loving wife, Regina, of 47 wonderful years; his children, Gretchen Brooks of Ulysses, Erich (Shawna) Brooks of Ulysses, Heidi (Joshua) O’Neil of Lawrenceville, and Alyson Brooks of Ulysses; nine precious grandchildren, Breanna, Blake, Beth, Brielle, and Braelyn Brooks, Reilly, Payton, Ethan, and Kelton O’Neil; aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Friends may call at Dexter Baptist Church, 1215 Rte. 660 West, Wellsboro, PA on Monday, January 4, 2021 from 2:00 – 4:00 and 6:00 – 8:00 PM. CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines apply. Funeral Services will be private. His son, Rev. Erich Brooks will officiate. Burial will be in West Hill Cemetery, Galeton.
