Plan Ahead


October 1, 1950 –
 April 10, 2022


Timothy (Tim) Ernest Brooks, 71, of Farmers Branch, Texas, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 10, 2022.

He passed away peacefully after a short stay in the hospital, following a fall.

Tim was born in Dallas, Texas in 1950 to Mr. & Mrs. Wilson Brooks. He was the eldest of four children.  As a kid and into his teens, he loved spending his time playing sports.  He was an avid baseball/football player in school as well as participating in the Pop Warner leagues of Farmers Branch.  After high school he attended North Texas University and eventually chose to carve his own path by becoming a barber, like his well-known father.  He continued this profession until he found his forever career at American Airlines. Retired, he spent his time reading and resting.

Tim is survived by his daughter Wendy Badgwell, two sons Wil and Mike Brooks, his brother John P. Brooks, and his two sisters Barbara Bell and Mary Brooks Abbott, 3 grandchildren, amongst many other cousins and a long list of friends throughout Texas. He was preceded in passing by his mother and father and his two wives.

The memorial service will be held at North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234 on May 7, 2022, at 2:00 pm. There will be a visitation at the same location beginning at 1:00 pm.  His family will be present to welcome friends and loved ones.

In lieu of flowers please send memorial donations to Dallas Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center

    Wendy and family,
    Hugs to you as you process your dad’s life and gather as family and friends for his service. I liked how you described his life which gave testimony that our days are numbered. Only God knows their beginning and end. May he RIP and prayers that you will have peace knowing he is in a better place.

"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
