Kevin Lee “Goatman” Brookshire

Kevin Lee “Goatman” Brookshire

Kevin Lee “Goatman” Brookshire, beloved dad, son, brother, soul mate, and friend, courageously won his battle against cancer on Wednesday, December 21, 2022. He is now healed and with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Kevin was born May 15, 1956, to the late David Leon Brookshire and Lena Brown Brookshire.

He is survived by his mother, Lena Brown Brookshire, and his son, David Jacob Wyatt Brookshire “Petey” and his wife, Olivia. Petey tenderly cared for his dad during his illness with the help of his wife of 34 years, Bunny. Petey was always the joy of Kev’s life just as Petey’s children are now. He is also survived by his sister, Flaxen Brookshire Reid; another son, Eric Lee Brookshire; and four grandchildren, Dawson, Parker, Wyatt and Cayden Brookshire.

Kevin was a legend in his fishing endeavors at all the carp ponds. He’ll be remembered for many, many things but mostly because he never met a stranger. And, although he called you friend, he would still take your money given a good draw and the right bait!

Kevin was the happiest when he was fishing or hunting with his son, Petey, or his other friends. He had a special love for Nick Beaver, who he called son, and of course for Jordan Jones. He also had a special love for his step-daughter, Amy Brown Hollars. He will be missed by so many, especially his little black boy, Rio, his pug of 15 years.

A celebration of Kevin’s life will be held at a later date.
