Brooks William Matthews

baby brooks

Brooks William Matthews was only 4 months old when he passed away on January 26, 2015 in Houston, TX. He was born on September 4, 2014 in Houston, TX. Brooks was a beautiful baby boy who left us early in life, and even though he may have only been 4 months old, he has touched the lives of many who knew him.

Brooks was the happiest baby that any of us knew. He was just starting to play peek-a-boo and loved eating rice cereal, and he always wanted to sit up and participate in the action. He loved to do Face Time with his long-distance relatives and looked forward to basketball games with his daddy and mommy.

Although he was too young to do it here on Earth, we know that his first words and first steps will be celebrated in Heaven.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory: his parents, Angela Plum and Alton Matthews Jr.; sister, Celeste Sofia Matthews and brother, Isaiah Alexander Campbell; grandparents: Leslie and Larry Monson, Greg Plum, Rev. Alton and Bevylen Matthews Sr.; great grandparents: Duane and Brenda Hanson, Carol Plum- Freese, William Henry Matthews; Aunts and Uncles: Justin (Lauren) Plum, Dre’langala (Maurice) Edwards, Cory Matthews, Jason Matthews, Kristy Matthews and a host of cousins and other relatives.

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 30, 2015 from 5 pm to 8 pm at Crowder Funeral Home. Funeral service will begin on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 10 am, with Pastor Johnny Brooks Sr. to be officiating, at Crowder Funeral Home, 2422 Broadway, Pearland, TX 77581. Interment to follow at Houston Memorial Gardens.

  3. May happy memories and the Bible’s promise at Acts 24:15 “there is going to be a resurrection” provide comfort and sustain your family during this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Please remember that God is “near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit He saves” (Psalms 34:18). Turn to Him in prayer and He will give you the strength and provide you with peace-“Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6,7)

  4. To Alton Jr. and Angela,
    May God continue to strengthen you during your time of need and just know that He does not make mistakes. Baby Brooks is rejoincing in heaven and smiling down on us.
    Love Aunt Winnie

  8. I don’t know you or you me but my heart was touched. Your children should never leave before their parent. Being a parent myself of a child left too soon, I understand. May God Bless!

  9. I happened to be seaching the Internet for something completely unrelated and came across the picture of your beautiful Brooks. Words cannot express my sadness for you your families loss. May God bless and strengthen you through these trying times. His memory will live on in you. Cherish the brief time you had with an angel here on earth and know that he know watches over you with the same love you felt looking down at him.

    I’m sorry
