He retired after 42 years with Southern Railroad, where he was known by his friends there as "Big Daddy." He enjoyed hunting and fishing and he was a devoted family man and deeply loved his grandchildren, his niece and nephews, his great-nieces and nephews, his extended family, and his dog, Loki.

Surviving are his daughter, Tracy Brooks Warren (Keith); son, Dwight L. Brooks, Jr.; grandchildren, Tyler Pitts and Taylor Nye; and a sister, Linda Rathbone (Carlton).
