“There are people who come through this world, on very rare occasions, and seem to do everything right in the way they live their life. Brooks Adair was one of those people. He came, he saw, he made a million friends and no enemies worth mentioning, he kicked ass in all endeavors, he made a tangible positive difference in the world, he begat three children of the highest caliber and raised them with the help of a wife of the same cut. He gave more than he had to people; some of whom deserved much less than he wanted to give them, and he did it with a glad heart and no thought of recompense. He accused lightly, and forgave heavily. And, he did it all while wearing the clothes and demeanor of just a regular guy who was getting by just well enough to have a little fun and take care of business. He was a small town boy made good, He was all about friends and family, home and hearth. He was the raging current under the deep, still waters; and he was the glassy calm surface of a lake. He was everywhere, even when you could only find him on his porch, or at his fishing hole. The legacy he left behind is embodied in his family – A ridiculously strong and fiercely loyal wife who loved him as hard as she fought for him; and children who, though they have suffered more than any should in watching his decline from this plane, have an inherent strength they can draw on, thanks to him. He also has far flung social and business relationships that continue to make a positive impact on people, but his family core will be his finest legacy. Strong in faith, fast in friendship, and sure in his way, he was a man of his own, which is the highest regard I can give to anyone. And he made it work like a charm in just a bit less than 49 years. Few people have done half as much in twice the time. Rest in peace, Brooks. You were a good man.” – Darrel Gower
