Mr. Kenneth A. Brooks of Washington, D.C. our long-time member and volunteer, well known to many, passed away at home on May 5, 2020.   Funeral arrangements are unknown (if you learn of any, please share) them with us o our contact us page.

NOTE: There is a gofundme page associated with a service for Ken Brooks. Caution note: A DCNRHS member has made repeated unsuccessful attempts to get details about what is being planned and how the money will be spent  from the organizer.  Therefore at this time we cannot reasonably conclude or recommend that anyone should donate to this campaign. Stay tuned. 

Ken served DCNRHS in many capacities over the years, including as Secretary, General Volunteer, and as a Pullman Porter on our 1923 sleeper-buffet-lounge. He was a regular at Chapter events.  We miss him already. 

Below is an image of Ken (foreground) taken by Jim Lilly taken May 11, 2013 (7 years ago today) aboard DOVER HARBOR at Grand Central Terminal in New York, New York.  Ken was serving as a Porter that day and showing several guests through the car.
