In Memoriam: Alvin J. Brooks, M-B Arlington and M-B Alexandria, fomerly American Service Center
Per its notice to membership over the weekend, WANADA is sad to report the passing of longtime Washington Area dealer and association member, Alvin J. Brooks of Mercedes-Benz of Arlington and Mercedes-Benz of Alexandria, formerly the American Service Center. He succumbed to a long term illness last weekend at the age of 84 and was memorialized yesterday, March 20, at the Washington Hebrew Congregation in DC (www.sagelbloomfield.com).
A native Washingtonian, Alvin enjoyed an eminently successful career as a franchised dealer retailing and servicing different brands of vehicles over the years, to include Mercedes-Benz which American Service Center retailed for most years, up through and including today at Mercedes-Benz of Arlington and Mercedes-Benz of Alexandria.
Alvinês business partner and brother-in-law, Morty Zetlin, was with Alvin through it all, later bringing in Mortyês son, Mark, who continues in the longstanding family business tradition.
Alvinês life partner Gail, Morty and his wife Cynthia, nephew Mark and nieces Donna and Bonnie are observing Shiva this evening, March, 21, 6:00-8:00 at Park Potomac Place Club Room, 12500 Park Potomac Avenue, Potomac, MD.
Contributions to Alvinês memory can be made to the American Heart Association and the National Parkinsonês Foundation.
To Alvinês family and many friends, WANADA extends its sincerest sympathies.Download Bulletin PDF
