Remembering Brian Brooks
Brian Brooks resided in Charlestown with his wife Betty Lou. He was a 1964 graduate of Boston College and spent his entire life as a resident of the Boston area. Mr. Brooks was a retired Senior Partner at PriceWaterhouseCoopers where he worked for 40 years. He was a founder and Co-Chair of the New England Center for Homeless Veterans’ annual Leave No One Behind Dinner and Auction, which raised well over a million dollars in the past eleven years. He was also a member of the board of the Guild of Oenophilists, the Massachusetts Audubon Society, and was a former president of the Massachusetts Society of CPAs. The New England Center for Homeless Veterans will be forever indebted to his incredible philanthropic support and power of persuasion.
Brian has one brother, Norman and several nieces and nephews. Together he and his wife Betty Lou had two children, Kenneth and April, and five grandchildren. Brian was most at home spending time with his wife in Nova Scotia where they both harnessed their passion for the outdoors and wildlife
Brian passed away on May 10, 2014 at the age of 72. He was taken too early from us but undoubtedly lived a very happy, successful life and will be greatly missed by all those who had the chance to enjoy life with him.
