David Brooks was a chemistry and technology teacher. He pioneered at the introduction of technologies such as television, precursors to PowerPoint, the World Wide Web, and computer-assisted instruction during traditional teaching. He was among the first in the world to offer courses that were entirely Web-based. He taught thousands of college undergraduate students, dozens of Masters students, and mentored almost 40 graduate students through to doctoral degrees.
Although not a world traveler, Dave was proud that he had spent at least one full day in each of the 50 states. “Each state has something beautiful.” He thoroughly enjoyed driving around the US.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Eileen Lizabeth. He is survived by Helen, his wife of 54 years, brother Michael, son Gregory Daniel, and two grandsons.
