Although we miss David very much
We know we'll see him once more.
This is the hope we have in God
Being re-united in the Lord and our passed loved ones.
Human death is just the beginning
of a wonderful,joyous and amazing re-awakening

Dave, my brother in law by law my brother by heart. No one had such a good heart always willing to help and always with a smile. He loved family and friends, our children were brought up knowing they could always count on him and I always knew it to. I have never been able to understand why God takes certain ones but he does. Dave will never be forgotten tears have flowed by many and our lives will never be the same, Pray for those who are left behind. as we try to go on with our lives. Anyone who knew Dave knew he was a ray of sunshine as he entered the room. Love to all hugs he gave many and children and helping others was his life. God Blessed us for having him in our lives.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I worked with David at Superior Concrete back in the early 80's. I remember his outgoing and upbeat personality. He was the one that taught me to drive truck when I first started there. I know he will be missed many.

My condolences go out to the Brooks family during this very difficult time as they lay Mr. David Brooks to rest. My prayers are with you and I pray your family can find the strength and courage to say goodbye to a man of great integrity and respected by all of those who were lucky enough to know him. It's so difficult to understand why God needed him more than his loved ones left behind. I'm sure he is now in the arms of his Mother who passed away just recently. This tragedy took his life so unexpectedly. As the family grieves and tries to accept what has happened all to soon, I hope they find peace to help ease their broken hearts. Family and friends of David now have an angel looking over them....

My condolences to he family of David. Though I haven't seen David for many years, I had to let you know that he and I were best buds in our early years, maybe when we were from 6 to 12 years old. He stayed with his Grandmother,Aunts Donna & Nancy Brooks on Riverside Drive during the summer months. We spent every day & night together. We slept in sleeping bags under the stars on the lawn and talked to late in the evening. It is so sad to loose someone that has been a part of your life. I'm glad to still have those memories. God Bless!

How many miles do you put on your forklift in a day?
A tribute to Dave Brooks

Just last week, after seeing Dave buzz by the office window on his lift, I asked Ron “How many miles do you suppose Dave puts on that fork lift in one day? Dave was a hard worker from dawn to dusk; clearing the shop floor, helping drivers load, loading up customers, unloading vendors of their steel or plastic deliveries, unloading and reloading the transfer truck, back to clearing the shop floor and putting the product in its place in the yard, loading another customer, helping another driver load, keeping the yard clean and organized, the go to man for everyone’s needs and he solved our needs. I admire his awesome work ethic.
After hobbling in on a Monday morning after running a marathon that weekend, Dave would greet me with “I found your name in the newspaper, in the race results, it took me looking through a thousand names but I found you.” That made me feel on top of the world; Dave taking the time and effort for me. Putting others first, being kind, considerate, thoughtful, giving of himself, all the true efforts of being a friend. I admire that. Unfortunately I was not a friend of Dave’s outside of work. For those who are, I envy you.
When a customer would show up to pick up product, no matter what time it was; break or lunch or when he was in the middle of something, Dave was there to load him. And Ron would call out on the radio a list of ten things to load and Dave would somehow remember them all. Whether it was work related or not, if you need help Dave was always there to pitch in a hand to help out. I admire that.
So whether you are at work working, or with friends and family, answer that question “How many miles did you put on your forklift in a day? Answer it the way Dave did “One extra mile”.
ACI nor our lives will not be the same, we will miss you Dave.
All in your honor Dave.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have some great memories of ice fishing in our younger years.

November 5, 2012 | Joline Fortier - Auburn, Maine -- USA

It is difficult to put into words just how much you will be missed. You always had a smile on your face and in your voice. There was always a whistle following you where ever you went. It is rare to find someone that is as happy with life as you were.
You will always be part of American Concrete and will be remembered fondly with a big smile.
May you rest in peace.
Your friend and co-worker

Grandpa, There are no words to describe my grieving for you as of late. I miss you so much. I'm just waiting for you to drive up in your work truck and pick me up for another day at work. I would give anything to see your grinning face again, or just to watch you work. I still cant seize reality in the fact that your gone in physical form.
I remember the 1st day you let me go to work with you grandpa. I was probably 5 years old. You taught me so many things that day, such as Character, Responsibility, Respect, and much more important to me, How to push a vault up hill.
I also remember, when you left work, just to come to Donuts with Dad, just for me. I felt like I was prince of the world, but you would always be King. You did everything for me grandpa, but I wish I could say the same about myself. I treated you horribly in the last 14 years of life. I feel so bad. It's been a week and 2 days since that horrible accident, but it seems every night I relive it from your point of view.
To this day, the only word that rolls through my mind is "Why". Why was it you. Out of everyone in life, Why you. You would give the shirt off your back to help someone. If someone called from a far away place asking for your help, you would be there in record setting time. You would always scavenge everything you found, and when we all asked you why, you would say, "Someone else might need it someday". Key point is someone else, not that you would need it. That's just how much of a incredible man you were.
I talk to you everyday, just like you were still here. I pray to God, that you can hear everything I say. I still need your guidance grandpa. Without you, I'm lost between 2 roads, and I'm afraid, I'd choose the 1 with the most suffering and misery.
No one could ever take your place in my heart grandpa, No one. I promise, I'll try to hold the family together. I'll make sure to look after Grammie.
I just hope that someday down the road, I'd be just a fourth of the man you were. Although that is doubtful, cause that is almost impossible to do. But believe me, I will try. I hope I made you proud, and I hope I continue making you proud. I love you grandpa, so, so much.
Never a goodbye to be said, I just hope that bye the end of my days, I'd be hearing your voice scream, Welcome Home!
Your Grandson,
Daveon Brooks
