Harold M. Brooks

HEBRON – Harold M. Brooks was a man of many talents but the biggest and best one was the talent of making sure the people he loved and cared for, knew so. Harold was a family man and would do anything to help anyone in their time of need. He would give you the shirt off his back if needed. He lived his life to the fullest, always having the mindset that the glass won’t fill it itself, make life the way you want it to be and never stop striving to be the best you can be.

Dreams are meant to be gone after if that’s what truly made you happy . He always called himself the “Lucky Dreamer” and he was right. He made things happen one way or another. He believed you can never fail , mistakes are supposed to happen to learn. Harold passed his wisdom to every single person he encountered. He loved to go fishing for trout with his family at Sumner Brook fish farm in New Hampsire, and Harold was an adventurer. He loved driving down back roads trying to find new places to fish, to see the wildlife and to just appreciate all Maine had to offer. Harold was a workaholic who loved nothing more than to get up and provide for his family. He had a great team of guys working for him throughout the years and when he passed, they weren’t just his employees, they were his family and he was very thankful for them to help keep his business going because without them there wouldn’t be a business and he wouldn’t be able to make his dreams come true. He was a military veteran having served his country in the U.S. Army during Desert Storm until his Honorable Discharge. Harold was truly a one of a kind man, he made an impact on every single person he came into contact with whether it was big or small. Selfless is the best word to describe Harold M. Brooks. Harold leaves behind his three children Mariah Button-Brooks and her partner Zachary Hall, Liam Brooks, and Aubrey Brooks, and his fianceé of 12 years, Brandy Righter, all of Hebron; his two sisters Tina Gilliam and her husband Ray of Minot and Cindy Usher and her partner Matthew Hoyt and his niece Alexis Usher and his parents Margaret and George Sleeper all of Poland.

A Celebration of Harold’s Life will take place on Saturday evening August 27, in Hebron, at the site of The former Red Neck Olympics. To leave a message for the family in their online guestbook, please visit http://www.thefortingroupauburn.com
