Danny Brooks, 64 of Mexia, passed away on February 22, 2021 in Mexia.  Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Prairie Grove Baptist Church with Mike Smith officiating.  Interment will follow at Prairie Grove Cemetery.  Family visitation will be Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the funeral home. 

Danny was born to Paul Dwayne & Jeti “Lucille” Costlow Brooks on July 17, 1956 in Hubbard, Texas.  He went to school & graduated from Frost High School in 1975.  After high school, he received his degree in journalism. 

He worked for Mexia State School for many years before he began working as a caregiver for the group homes.  He met the love of his life, Deborah Harrell Brooks in 1993 and they married September 12, 2000.  That day his entire life changed when he became a husband, daddy and grandpoppy all in the same day. 

Anyone that met him right away knew he had a sense of humor and loved his music.  This music collection has been compared to that of a music store.  His knowledge of music, artist and ecleptism was extravagant.  He loved the Lord and has been prepared to go to his Heavenly Home for many years to rejoin his love. 

Danny was preceded in death by his wife, Deborah Harrell Brooks; parents, Paul & Lucille Brooks; son-in-law, Michael Samples; granddaughter, Stephanie Brooks; brother, Larry Brooks and sister, Paula Durham.  He is survived by his children, Laura Brooks Williams & husband, Mike, Kimberly Baker & husband, Brian and Kristi Rhodes Batten; grandchildren, Kaitlyn Samples, Hannah Samples, Madison Harrell, Caleb Rhodes, Noah Baker, Savannah Rhodes, Bentley Harrell-Christian and Oaklyn Lummus; bonus grandchildren, Brittany McCloskey & Nylah Swayne; sister, Glenda Selman & husband, Billy; best friends for life, Kenneth & Terri Young; brother-in-law, Curtis Durham; as well as many nieces, nephews and brothers & sisters-in-law. 

Serving as pallbearers are Chris Brooks, Wesley Brooks, Johnny Lee Cowger, Billy Selman, Ty Williams, Trent Williams, Brian Baker, Curtis Durham, Ace Eberle, Austin Eberle and Randal Eberle.
