Andrew Brook

Andrew “Andy” G. Brook, 38, of Brookfield and formerly of Haslett, Michigan, died on April 5, 2019. 

Born on April 24, 1980, he was a manager for IT systems and security. He was deeply and widely loved. There are many reasons why, but mainly it was his love for his people. From growing up in Haslett, to studying and swimming at Kalamazoo College, to living and working in Grand Rapids, Chicago, Seattle, and in Silsoe, England, he always found his people. 

Mr. Brook was the husband of Anne Brook (nee Ball); the father of Penelope Brook and Finnian Brook; the son of Roger Brook and Pat Brook (nee Padgham); the son-in-law of Randall Ball and Mary Ball (nee Herrinton); the brother of Jessica (Rick) Shaw and Daniel (Stephanie) Brook; the brother-in-law of Lauren (Kirt) Brown and Scott (Jessica) Ball; and the uncle of Noah, Chloe, Joshua, Caroline, Nathaniel, Daniel and Breslin. 

Visitation is on Wednesday, April 10 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Hitzeman Funeral Home, 9445 31st St. in Brookfield. A funeral Mass will be celebrated April 11 at 11 a.m., at St. Francis Xavier Church, in La Grange. Interment is private.
