Odell Brooks

June 22, 1939 — April 20, 2019

Odell “Bozie” Brooks was born June 22,1939 in North Carolina to the late Gladys Brooks and William  “Bill” Artis. Heavenly angels guided him home on April 20, 2019. 

Bozie, as we all called him, worked for 35 years at the Montclair Golf Course in Montclair, NJ as a Greenskeeper.

He moved to Newark, NJ in 1964 at the age of 24 where he later married Rose Marie Rock on August 3,1968. God blessed Bozie with four children, Bridgette Winston, Eugene L. Brooks, Odell Brooks Jr. and Tisha D. Brooks.

Bozie had a smile that could light up a room and a stature to match. He was loved and respected by many people. He will be deeply missed yet never forgotten.

Bozie was preceded in death by his sisters Virginia Lee Brooks, Vicky Faye Brooks and his brother Delphus Brooks. 

Odell will be remembered by his wife, Rose Marie Brooks, two daughters, Bridgette Winston and Tisha Brooks, two sons Eugene Brooks and Odell Brooks Jr., three sisters Ann Wilcox, Lawanda Carter(Tom) and Robin Brooks, three brothers Harold Brooks (Marietta- Deceased), Tyrone Brooks (Agnes) and Angelo “Lope” Brooks, four grandchildren and a host of  cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.


It is the desire of his wife Rose and the Brooks family that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
