Obituary for EDWARD LEE BROOKS

Prince Frederick, to the late James Edward Brooks and Mary Bernice Freeland Brooks on

1965. Upon completion of high school, he moved to Stamford, Connecticut where he met and married Diane Spears in December of 1966. From this union came his only and beloved daughter Bernadette Bryant. Edward was a veteran of the Vietnam War, where he proudly served this Country in the United States Army from 1965 to 1972; being honorably discharged
