Larry E. Brooks

Larry Evans Brooks, 80, of Byron passed away on Monday, October 14, 2019.

Larry was born on July 25, 1939 to William and Anna (Olson) Brooks.  He lived his entire life in Byron and now lived just across the field from the house he was born in.  Larry graduated from Byron High School in 1957.

Byron was always very special to Larry and he spent his whole life building housing and business developments and was a brick layer, by trade.  He was also a farmer and enjoyed his tranquil time in the fields getting his much needed “therapy time”.  Larry didn’t have much time for hobbies as he was always too busy working; however, he would always try to find time for hunting.  He also took up the game of golf, late in his life, during his retirement years.    For the past 10 years he and Sandy have wintered in Sun City, Arizona and he played golf almost every day, trying to become a better player.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Sandra Brooks; his daughter Denys Brooks; his son Bryan Brooks; sister in law Ruth Brooks; many nieces and nephews which includes one extra special niece, Lynn Wytaske.  He is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings Wallace, Russell, Dale and Audrey Fuchs.

The funeral service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Byron United Methodist Church with Pastor Beth Perez officiating.  Visitation will be held from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday evening at the Byron Funeral Home (1620 Voll Drive NW, Byron, MN 55920) and from 10:00am until the time of the service on Saturday at the church.  Burial will be in the Byron Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to the Byron United Methodist Church or to the donor’s choice.

Dear Sandy, Denyse and Bryan,


My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.  Larry was such a great man that will be missed.  He provided so many positive contributions to people around him and to Byron.  As younger man I enjoyed time sitting in Larry's office and talking about family, business, horses, investments and life.  His wisdom was shared generously and is so appreciated to this day.  Rest in peace Larry.
