Dr. Allan Brooks

 

Allan Brooks was born on November 21st, 1930. Son of the late Minerva and William Brooks. He was the beloved husband of Edith Hopen Brooks for 63 years and father of Dr. Beth Brooks (Robert Waterston), Eric Brooks (Heidi), and Hal Brooks (Rachel Botchan). He was an adoring Poppop to Sienna, Xander, Dashiell, and Benjamin. A lifelong Philadelphian, he was a graduate of Central High School Class 190, University of Pennsylvania, and Hahnemann Medical College. Allan was a respected psychoanalyst and child psychiatrist. He was an avid runner back in the 60s and 70s, and he loved tennis, swimming, and biking. For over forty years, Allan and Eadie shared their love of the Philadelphia Orchestra, opera, theater, and cinema as a couple and with their longtime friends. In recent years he was part of an opera class through Congregation Adath Jeshurun. Allan loved spending time with his family and friends, and was known for making everyone smile, laugh, and feel loved. He made every person feel special. His hearty laugh will live on in our hearts.
