Juliet TN, John Brookover (Kendra) of Zanesville, OH, Phil Brookover (Pauline) of Apex, NC, Steve Brookover (Cyndy) of Toledo, OH and his "special brother" Scot Black (Alma) of Garner. Will is also survived by his Aunt Fern Gabriel of Zanesville, OH, Aunt Bernadine Brookover of Tarboro, along with many nieces, great nieces, nephews, great nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother Kenneth and Rosanna Brookover , sister Mary Ann Brookover, and brother Charles Brookover all of Zanesville, OH.
