Mr. Hubbard (Red) Brooks was born to both the late Louiza Stallworth and John Frye on May 5, 1945 in Coy, Alabama. He attended Ashel Elementary School as a young child, Tates Chapel School for Junior High and Camden Academy Senior High School, all of which were in Alabama. He was a member of Mount Gilead Baptist Church throughout his early life while residing in Coy, Alabama. He later moved to Massachusetts where he resided until his untimely death.

Hubbard was first united in marriage to Annie Murphy in his early twenties, then later to Allison Reinschild. He was the devoted father of Karen Brooks, Herbert Brooks (deceased), Barbara Landroche, Lindsey Brooks, Brendon Brooks and Alexander Brooks, Sean Knight and Marvin Brooks (deceased).

Hubbard spent much of his life driving city buses for both the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and the Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA). He later became a driver for the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut after retiring from driving city buses.

He is survived by his children: Karen (Kay) Brooks, Barbara Landroche (John), Lindsey Brooks, Brendon Brooks, Alex Brooks and Sean Knight. He has 16 grandchildren and 11 great grand who will miss him dearly. He leaves three sisters: Lillie Murphy (Willie), Lillian Malloy (Marcus), Yolanda Gibbs and four brothers: Sanford Stallworth, Douglas Stallworth, Marvin Stallworth, Willie Brooks and Ashley Stallworth (deceased), best friend Ernest (Scrap) Burson and goddaughter, Nicole Joyner. He also leaves an uncle, Reuben Knight (Valiaza) of Massachusetts and an aunt, Barbara Jenkins of Mobile, Alabama.

Although Hubbard was well loved by his family and friends, he maintained a very close brotherly bond with his older sister Lillie and her husband Willie (Nunch) Murphy. Another special relationship he shared during his lifetime was with his first wife, Annie Brooks. They remained close friends till the moment he took his last breath.
