William "Bill" Frederick Brooks, 71, of Fallbrook, passed away on Jan. 26, after a brave five-year battle with a brain tumor. He was the son of the late Clyde and Vivian Brooks.
Bill was an antique dealer for nearly 50 years, specializing in Asian antiquities and fine arts. He was a treasure hunter, who loved history, writing, travel, gardening, animals, and his family.
Bill is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Judy Benedetti Brooks; his daughters, Kristin and Jillian; his grandson, Alexander William, and his sisters, Carol and Linda.
A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends this summer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the San Diego Rescue Mission. Bill will be deeply missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing and loving him.
