Joshua Ray Brooks

July 12, 1982 — June 24, 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Joshua “Josh” Ray Brooks announce his sudden passing on Friday, June 24, 2022 at the age of 39.

Josh was born to Tommy “Tom” Brooks and Beverlee Rearick in Xenia, OH on July 12, 1982. He was a loving son, brother, and friend to many. Josh is preceded in death by his father, Tom Brooks. Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Beverlee Rearick; his step-father, Jerry Rearick; his brother, Jason Brooks and sister-in-law Marybeth; his sister, Shawna McCann; his niece, nephews, cousins, as well as extended family members and friends. Josh was a man with a great sense of humor and a kind heart. He will be deeply missed, but his laughter and the wonderful memories he helped create will never be forgotten by those who knew him.

A memorial service will be held at a later date for immediate family members.

“You can shed tears that he is gone or you can smile because he has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him or you can be full of the love that you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he is gone or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love, and go on.” – David Harkins
