BROOKS, Calvin Adam- age 51, of Indian Brook. It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce they sudden passing of an amazing son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend on March 5, 2022.  Calvin was born to Constance Brooks in the spring of 1970, April 6th.

Calvin was always on the move never slowing down only to stop and read something and to start a new goal. Though he did not finish school; he was an entrepreneur and mastered anything he put his mind to. He had many jobs under his belt from carpenter to fisherman to store manager. Calvin was very easy going and made friends anywhere he went. He was a very helpful and generous man that would give you the shirt off his back. He would help anyone and never wanted anything in return. He truly was a special man. Calvin loved his family; he loved his many friends. He also loved fishing; it did not matter if it was river or open ocean. He fished with family as often as he could with nieces and nephews, Sheyanne (Oliver) Francis, Jonathan (Angela) Paul, Darren Jr. (Haley) Marshall, Dustan (Ashley) Marshall. He was willing to teach anyone about fishing that was willing to learn. He was a very hardworking man, everyday of his life. He was the “jack of all trades”. Calvin was humble, humorous and always helpful when needed, it did not matter who or what or if, it was just advice. He was always there for anyone. Many cousins grew up close to Calvin like brothers and sisters
