David Brooks - Funeral Arrangements

By Joseph Milligan

Details of the funeral of David Brooks

For those wanting to attend the funeral of David the club have received the following messages related to the funeral.

Suddenly and unexpectedly on 13 July 2018, aged 70, after a short illness. Dearly loved husband, brother and friend to so many people passed away.

Funeral service on 3 August, 1.30pm at Great Glen Crematorium, London Road, Great Glen, Leicestershire LE8 9DJ.

Service to celebrate David's life, 5 October at 2.30pm at Leicester Cathedral.

A warm invitation is extended to both services. Family flowers only. David actively supported two charities. Donations, if desired for DebRA (for people whose skin doesn't work) and The Bridge (homelessness to hope) online at or sent to J. Stamp & Sons, Funeral Directors, 15 Kettering Road, Market Harborough, LE16 8AN. Tel: 01858 462524

A reception will be held at the Leicestershire Golf Club after the funeral on the 3rd August.

It would be very helpful if you could let me know if you are planning to attend the funeral so that we have a little idea as to numbers particularly for the reception at the Leicestershire. It is recommended that you arrive early to ensure that you can park and be settled in seats ready for the service and the arrival of David, and the family.

A number of you have already written little anecdotes or stories relating to David’s sporting exploits . I would welcome more of these stories both on pitch and off pitch and also on and off the golf course. We will try to blend as many of these as possible into both services and certainly compose a memorial booklet for Wendy and the family as a keepsake and memory of David’s sporting life and great friends.

Barry and other County and Westleigh Stalwarts, if you have any records or memories of David’s county and Leicester Westleigh career these would be very helpful.

Thought I would just confirm that Wendy would be delighted if we all wore our brightest ties and our snazziest socks in honour of DNB.

If anyone would like to attend please send an email and I will respond with contact details.
