SARATOGA SPRINGS — Lawrence J. Brooks, 62, of Lamplighter Lane, passed away in his sleep late Tuesday evening, March 18.

Larry retired from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance in 2008. He loved his job, his co-workers and friends, sports, and horse racing. His hobbies included photography, golf, working on computers and doing anything for anyone who needed his help. His compassion, humor and intelligence granted him a special place in the hearts of all who knew him.

He had a terrible and unforgiving disease known as ALS. Even when the disease took way almost all of his mobility, he still managed to make friends and could bring a smile to someone’s face with just his smile. He had a “never give up” attitude and even though he is gone, his love and memories will continue on in the lives of those who knew him forever.

He leaves behind his loving wife, Mary (Lloyd) Brooks; son, Richard and grandson, Nickolas; sisters, Sharon Gendron (Henry) and Darlene Bourassa, and brothers, George Riley (Patricia) and Timothy Riley (Gail); many bothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews and nieces.

Relatives and friends may call from 4-8 p.m. Monday, March 24 at the William J Burke and Sons/Bussing and Cunniff Funeral Homes, 628 North Broadway 584-5373.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the Church of St Peter, 241 Broadway. Burial will follow in St. Peter’s Cemetery.

Memorials may be made in his name to St. Peters ALS Regional Center, 19 Warehouse Row, Albany, NY, 12205.
