Brooks Peterson brought an editorial voice to his beloved Korpitos.

During his Corpus Christi newspaper career, the recently deceased Brooks Peterson wrote on just about every subject that touched public life, some of great importance and some of the things that just make life interesting. He did it with grace, wit, and empathy for the people he wrote about. In other words, he possessed the best qualities of an editor.

A former editorialist for this newspaper said that writing editorials for newspapers is like writing on the sand of a beach; words are washed away with every wave. Perhaps. But Brooks, my colleague and friend, wrote with conviction and insight, which he felt was vital to the newspaper’s readers. He did this job for most of the more than 30 years he spent with the paper.
