About Us

Here is the story of our family...

The Brooks Family has been in Dallas since 1942. After Wilson & Faye Brooks graduated high school they made their home in Oak Cliff, Texas. Wilson Brooks was a barber by trade and worked in the Oak Cliff / Dallas area from 1942 to 1972 when he passed away. Faye Brooks rode the trolley car every morning from Oak Cliff to Downtown Dallas where she worked for A. Harris & Company for many years. In 1955 Wilson & Faye moved their home and family to Farmers Branch, Texas. Wilson was involved with Senior league baseball for many years in Farmers Branch. They were members of St. Andrews Episcopal Church. Many Saturdays Wilson would gather the neighborhood boys and give them haircuts free of charge. He was very active and very loving with his neighbors and community and especially his family. Faye was very active in civic and schools in Farmers Branch. She was very active in P.T.A. Faye has never met a stranger. She has helped many families along the way.

Wilson and Faye had four children. Wilson’s hard work ethics in treating people fairly was instilled in his children. After Wilson’s death in 1972, Faye reared her children as a single mother.  They continued to reside in Farmers Branch and are members of St. Andrews Episcopal Church. John P. Brooks was the third born to Wilson & Faye Brooks. He spent most his childhood years in Farmers Branch attending the Carrollton / Farmers Branch school system playing baseball and football and staying active in church. John is a graduate of Dallas Institute of Funeral Service where he was the President of his graduating class and member of Pi Sigma Eta fraternity. John is the President of The John P. Brooks Family Funeral/Cremation Corporation which owns funeral homes in North Texas. John is on the Board of Directors of Parents Against Crime and Drugs and the Foundation for Crippled Children, past member of the Board of Directors of the Dallas County Funeral Directors Association and The Texas Legislative Committee for The Texas Funeral Directors Association in Austin, Texas. John has had the honor to receive a United States Flag that was flown over The Capitol Building in his honor for strengthening and enriching those lives around him. John is an active member of Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch Texas., and proud to be a Roman Catholic Funeral Director.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
