Andrew G. Brook
Please keep in prayer the family and friends of Andrew G. Brook, age 38 of Brookfield, Illinois, who died suddenly and unexpectedly on April 5, 2019. Andrew is the son of Roger and Rev. Patricia L. Brook, retired elder currently serving at Carson City UMC. Andy loved life as the husband of Anne (Ball) and father of Penelope (4) and Finnian (1); son-in-law of Randall Ball and Mary Ball; brother of Jessica (Rick) Shaw and Daniel (Stephanie) Brook; brother-in-law of Lauren (Kirt) Brown and Scott (Jessica) Ball; and uncle of Noah, Chloe, Joshua, Caroline, Nathaniel, Daniel and Breslin.
Andy is deeply and widely loved. There are many reasons why this is so, but mainly it is his love for his people. From growing up in Haslett, Michigan, to studying and swimming at Kalamazoo College, to living and working in Grand Rapids, Chicago, and even Seattle, Washington, and Silsoe, England, Andy always found his people. He found them and he cared for them and he loved them, and in return, Andy became deeply and widely loved. It turns out the equation is simple. Be honest, be kind to those you know and those you don’t, and above all be good, and people from all points will count you as friend, as family.
Visitation is Wednesday April 10, 2019 from 4 P.M. to 8 P.M. at Hitzeman Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 9445 W. 31st Street, Brookfield, IL 60513 and Thursday April 11, 2019 from 10:00 am to the time of the Funeral Service at 11:00 Am at St. Francis Xavier Church, Corner of Spring and Ogden, LaGrange, IL 60525.
