Obituary for Pastor Norman L. Brooks

Pastor Norman L. Brooks, age 75, of Bonner Springs, Kansas and previously of Basehor, KS went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 while surrounded by his loving family. His family will receive friends at a visitation from 4:30–7:00 p.m. with the Funeral Service following at 7:00 p.m., both Monday, May 20th at the Victory Assembly of God Church in Bonner Springs. A Graveside Committal Service will be 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 21st, at the Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Kansas City, KS.
Memorial Contributions can be made to the Victory Assembly of God Building Fund or the Kansas City Hospice House.

Norman was born on September 18th, 1943 in Kansas City, Kansas and was the third, of four children born to Aaron & Nellie (Spainhower) Brooks. He grew up in the Kansas City area, attending the Victoria Tabernacle Church where he met the love of his life, Ann Thomas, and they were married on February 11th, 1960. At just 21 years of age, Norman was the Owner/Operator of Brooks Grocery Market in Argentine. Norman attended Southwestern Assemblies of God Bible College in Waxahachie, Texas and later was ordained with the Assemblies of God District of Kansas. He served as the Youth Pastor at Gospel Temple in Kansas City, KS. In May of 1970 Norman was asked to reopen a closed church in Bonner Springs, KS and re-establish a new work known as Victory Assembly of God where he served his calling for 49 years. In 1976 a devastating fire destroyed the church building however with great determination working as the general contractor he rebuilt a new facility. With a vision for the future Pastor Brooks and congregation purchased 15 acres on K-7 Highway in Shawnee. Continuing his legacy the plan is to build a new facility and keep the vision for this area alive.
Norman also served as Youth Coordinator (CA Represenative) of Section One for the Kansas Assemblies of God, past President of the Bonner Springs Ministerial Alliance and was the President of Voice of Hope Missions. The Brooks’ have made numerous television and radio appearances and have ministered the Gospel internationally. Over the years, Norman had been a Contract Carrier for the Kansas City Star Newspaper and Real Estate investor. He loved to travel with his wife Ann in their Motorcoach, and more recently enjoyed spending the winters in Florida.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and in 1972 by his daughter Kelly Ann Brooks. Survivors include his wife Ann Brooks of the home, two children: N. Tracy Brooks and wife Vickie, Shelly Workman and husband Chuck all of Bonner Springs. Six grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren. Three sisters: Kathy Buckwalter and husband Ray of Bates City, Mo., Maryellen McCormick and Gayle Miles both of Shawnee, KS, as well as his loving church family that will miss him greatly.

Some day you will read in the papers that Norman Brooks is dead. Don’t believe a word of it! At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now; I shall have gone up higher that is all out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal-a body that death cannot touch, that sin cannot taint; a body fashioned like unto His glorious body. (Revised Quote from D.L. Moody)

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25 NKJV

One of the most genuine and caring pastors I have ever had the privilege to work alongside. Always willing to let us young folks try something out. He always encouraged us and would talk with us. The earth lost a great one, but heaven gained today. See you in heaven Pastor, love you.

So sorry to hear of Norman's passing. We grew up with Norman and Ann at Victoria Tabernacle in KCK. Last saw them at a reunion of Victoria Tabernacle C-A youth a few years ago. God richly blessed them with a wonderful ministry and the rewards will be given by God. Prayers for his family

Pastor Norm and his lovely wife Ann loved me back to Jesus. Words can’t express what an impact he made in my life. Norm is in his new incorruptible body with only joy and delight at being in the presence of the Father. We can go to if we believe.

Pastor Brooks you changed my life for the better. I’ve been crying in thankfulness over the past few days. I remember message after message you preached about living a holy life and about the importance of generosity. Mostly I will forever be grateful for the bus ministry that came through my neighborhood one Sunday morning and picked me up. That Sunday morning I sat in kids church and I won the quiet award. I was so happy. Just a few weeks later I was attending youth service and I raised my hand for Jesus to come live in my heart. My entire family came to the Lord bc of the vision you had for a bus to pick up children and bring them to church and it is this faith foundation that has rescued and strengthened me in every season of my life. The love of your family and my church family became a source that developed me into the woman I am today. Your legacy will live on and on in the thousands and thousands of souls that were touched over the years bc of the work of God through you and Ann at Victory Assembly. The heavens are celebrating because they gained a spiritual giant. Love you forever. You will always be precious to all of us.
