Francis M. Brooks, 61, of Cape Coral, FL passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 19. Originally from Syracuse, he moved to Cape Coral, FL, where he made his home for many years. Frank was employed with Domino’s for 30 years. A classic car enthusiast, he came to Syracuse for the Nationals several times and went to classic car nights with his car in Florida. Frank was a kind, gentle, thoughtful and caring man. He had an easygoing way about him that was so special. It was effortless to be in his company. We were incredibly lucky he was a part of our family.
Frank was predeceased by his father, Francis; and grandparents.
Surviving are his mother and stepfather, Anna Marie and Jon Northrup; sister, Patricia (Douglas) Miller; brother, Richard (Julie) Brooks; stepsisters, Sue Northrup, Sandra Walters and Liz Scott; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Services will be private. Frank will be laid to rest in Greenlawn Cemetery, Warners.
