Gaylord Brooks Passes At 93

February 13th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

The community is mourning the passing of Gaylord Brooks, a pioneer in Allegany County’s environmental health arena – he was 93.  He held a Bio-Science degree from the University of Maryland and was the Director of Environmental Health for Allegany County for a number of years. While under his direction, the county did away with open-burn dumps and moved toward the use of abandoned strip mines as landfills. The Scarpelli Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
