George Ulric (Mickey) Brooks, Jr., 78, of Williamsburg passed away May 13, 2013. Born October 19, 1934 in Sycamore, VA, he was the son of the late G.U.Brooks, Sr. and Vera White Brooks. He was preceded in death by a sister, Vera Colucci.
Mickey is survived by his wife of 56 years, Shirley Blankinship Brooks, two sons: G.U.Brooks, III and H. Vincent Brooks; a brother, Ray B. Brooks and wife, Sharon, and cousin (or “second brother”), D. T. LeFew, Jr. and wife, Barbara.
Upon his mother’s passing, he went to live with his aunt, Vivian B. LeFew in Lynchburg, Va.
He graduated from E. C. Glass High School where he was voted friendliest in his class, and served as band president and lead drummer. He spent three years as a Naval Hospital Corpsman before attending Lynchburg College.
George was a Boy Scout leader, member of the Jaycees, Rotary Club, and Salvation Army where he was named Southeastern Division Man of the Year.
He began his professional career with Blue Cross, moved to real estate, and ultimately began his own business cleaning carpets.
In addition to his sense of humor, he was known for his dedication to volunteering, ministering and encouraging those in need.
Mickey was devoted to his Savior, his family and his fellow man. He was a member of Victory Christian Fellowship in Lynchburg and Williamsburg Christian Church in Williamsburg.
He left quite a legacy…much more than any of us will ever know.
A celebration of his life will take place at 2 P.M. on Wednesday, May 22 At Williamsburg Christian Church on John Tyler Lane.
In lieu of flowers, please consider the Salvation Army as this was his charity of choice
