Unit #30 -  Bud and Caroline Brooks

We moved into Angell Brook Village in March of 2006 after down-sizing from our home in Princeton, MA. We are extremely happy about our choice. We were married in 1971 and started our lives together in a one room apartment in Hanover where I taught 8th grade mathematics for 3 years while working on his MEd in Guidance. Carol worked as a Medical Technologist at South Shore Hospital.

In 1974, we moved to Princeton and bought a small ranch house where we started a family and lived for 20 years. In 1993 after designing our ideal home floorplan, we worked with a carpenter and built our dream home on 4 acres in another part of Princeton. During this time and today, Carol has worked at Holden Hospital, which eventually became UMass Memorial, and I taught mathematics in grades 5-8 in Rutland, MA until 1990 when I changed jobs and began working in educational technology field at Bancroft School in Worcester.

We have two children, Justin and Meredith, who live and work in the area. Justin is the head of Desktop Services at Clark University, and Meredith is a mechanical engineer designing toys for Hasbro, Inc.

Both of us are very active playing tennis and golf, as well as walking and bicycling when we can. Carol keeps our home life humming and enjoys creating mosaic wall hangings, and has just started researching the genealogy of her family. I do volunteer work for the Princeton Historical Society, as well as design websites for people and work for a company called eHomewatch that provides home monitoring solutions.
