We are terribly saddened to report that our friend and colleague, Brooke Whitted
, passed away Sunday, July 27th. He was a partner in the Northbrook law firm of Whitted Takiff + Hansen, LLC.
Brooke made thousands of lives better for more than four decades as a probation officer, a lawyer, and a friend to many. He was one of the most caring individuals we have known. Brooke spent his life using his creative mind and positive energy to help others. He saved children’s lives by getting them the services they needed and helped school districts develop and implement child-focused educational practices. Brooke helped plan and create schools that have helped multitudes, and that will continue to help children and their families far into the future.
Brooke’s legacy is immense. He was a wonderful, warm and powerful force, who helped families in some of their darkest times.
He will be missed.
A memorial reception celebrating Brooke Whitted’s life will be held at Westmoreland Country Club on Saturday, August 16th from 2-5 p.m.
