Michael Crockett Brooks

Michael Crockett Brooks, longtime Pagosa Springs resident, passed away on Sept. 30, 2009, at his home in Aspen Springs. He died of natural causes. Mike worked for many years as an automotive parts salesman. At the time of his death he was employed at CARQUEST Auto Parts. Many in the automotive repair business in Pagosa counted on Mike to locate parts that seemed almost impossible to find. More times than not he came through for customers when they thought it was a lost cause. He took great satisfaction in knowing that he was able to help solve someone’s problem. Mike was a staunch conservative, a gun lover, and a card carrying member of the NRA. He knew as much about firearms as he did about auto parts. He also had a love of animals, especially his dog Pogo. Mike will be missed by his CARQUEST family, his friends, and the many customers he served every day.
