We received word that Len Brooks, a former staff member, has passed away. He and his wife, Esther, served at Faith

from 1960-1971 and Len was instrumental in obtaining the present property where Faith Academy stands. This photo is Len with his daughter, Kathy (Brooks) VanDuzer. The following is from his niece’s (Joyce Brooks Hardisty) Facebook post: 

Heard this morning that one of our mighty men of God Leonard C. Brooks (my Uncle) went home to be with His Lord…. that would have been on Friday, in New Jersey.

Uncle Len followed faithfully in the godly footsteps of his missionary parents, Cyril and Anna Brooks. He leaves behind his lovely wife, Esther Brooks, and almost all of his kids, his grandkids, his great grandkids, as well as his brother, Ken Brooks, (my Dad) and his sister, Rose Brooks, not to mention all the rest of us. We do not grieve as others do because we KNOW that we will see Uncle Len again in glory. 

Uncle Len is now dancing with his "Cinderella", his oldest child, Nancy Brooks Mehorter who went home to be with the Lord in April of 1991. 

On Tuesday, January 15th visitation will be from 3-5 pm with the funeral service at 7:30 pm. Both services will be at Bethany Bible Chapel, 2341 Church Rd. Toms River. A graveside service will be conducted on Wednesday, January 16th at the Fairview Cemetery, 1100 East Broad Street in Westfield. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Christian Missions in Many Lands.
