Michael Naraldo Brooks “Wonder Mike”

July 7, 1979 — January 14, 2024


Michael Naraldo Brooks, aged 44, was a beloved native of Warner Robins. He passed away at Houston Medical Center on the evening of Sunday, January 14, 2024.

Known for his warm and friendly demeanor, Michael, also known as “Cookie Head,” never met a stranger. His outlandish personality, sense of humor, and stunts enriched the lives of those around him. His laughter became a constant source of joy.

Despite his jokes, Michael remained a humble soul, treasuring the bonds he shared with his family. His greatest source of pride and joy were his three daughters, Makayla, Lexi, and Bella. In addition to his role as a loving husband and father, Michael embraced the responsibilities of being a fantastic uncle to his nieces and nephews. He constantly showered his loved ones with warmth and affection.

Michael also had a profound passion for football, finding bliss in cheering for teams such as the Florida Gators, Redskins, FAMU, and the HoCo Bears. As a grill master, he delighted friends and family with his culinary talents, creating lasting memories through shared meals. Michael also served as an usher for Jerusalem Baptist Church and was a Mason. Professionally, he demonstrated his skills at Brooks Privacy Fencing and was a dedicated truck driver for Pet Dairy.

Michael was preceded in death by his sister, Sophia Robinson.

His memory will forever be treasured by his wife of 17 years, Andrea Pyron Brooks of Byron; children, Makayla, Lexi, and Bella Brooks, all of Byron; parents, Michael Brooks (Jackie) of Monroe, and Barbara Johnson (Roy) of Warner Robins; siblings, Amber Goolsby (Edward) of Byron, Tracie Huff of Warner Robins, Anthony Burks of Virginia, Markell Brooks of Texas, Alex Robinson (Kayla), Angel Hodges, and Rekeisha Robinson, all of Warner Robins, Nichole Robinson Maryland of Washington D.C., and Angelica Robinson of Atlanta; grandmother, Julia Mae Jackson; mother-in-law, Lottie Pyron Melton (Keith); brothers-in-law, Bobby Pyron, and Nick Pyron (Kimberly) all of Hampton, and Terrell Johnson (Ann) of Florida; sister-in-law, Audrell Johnson of Warner Robins; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends.
