Frank Duane Brooks, 85, passed away peacefully on May 11, 2019 at Laurens Memorial Home in Laurens.
Frank was a son of the late Malcolm Ruff Brooks and Hattie Crumpton Brooks and was the last survivor of his immediate family. He was preceded in death by three brothers, Preston, Malcolm and Furman Brooks and two sisters, Ruby Brooks and Louise Masters.
