Roland Brooks was born on September 23, 1959 in Norfolk, Virginia to Alton and Beulah Brooks. He was the second of five children. He received his early education through the Norfolk Public School System where he graduated with honors from Norview High School. After graduating from high school, he was accepted into the Newport News Shipbuilding Apprenticeship Program. He graduated from the Apprentice Program with honors and subsequently became an Electrician Supervisor in Department E31 where he worked for over 25 years. Roland also loved sports, animals and was gifted at training dogs. On February 25, 2018, Roland departed this life to be with the King in Heaven. Roland leaves us all with many memories of his life and how it touched ours. We are blessed and honored to have been able to share in his life’s journey. However, he was only passing through this world and now takes his eternal place with the King. Roland leaves behind a host of family members and friends who will someday see him again. Special recognition to Jacqueline Blackwell who was Roland’s soulmate for 22 years.
