Andrew Clyde “A. C.” Brooks, 77, of Baytown was born March 7, 1940, in Tyler to Rev. E. B. Brooks, Sr. and Edna E. Brooks and went to be with his Lord unexpectantly on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. He was a graduate of Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler and Tyler Junior College. He moved to Baytown in 1968 and worked for GDS Engineering until he retired.
A. C. was a member of Second Baptist Church for over 50 years. He was a dedicated Christian man who loved his Lord and served his church and everyone he encountered.

Jr. and Melba Brooks; nephews and nieces, Bill and Marilyn Rose, Mark and Jennifer Rose, Michael Brooks, and Cheryl and Bob Grant; and great nephews and great nieces, Andrew Rose, Solomon and Leigh Rose, Hayden Watson, Georgia Johnson, Danna and Adam Harrison, Jennifer and Wesley Gheen, Madison Watson, and Miranda Watson.
