Brook Edward Dimko 60, of Salem, died at 11:55 AM Saturday, February 26, 2022, at Salem Regional Medical Center.
He was born on August 19, 1961, in Salem, Ohio, the son of the late Michael and Shelby J. (Beeson) Dimko Jr.
Brook last worked at Ventra-Salem but had also worked at Quaker Mfg, Little Tikes in Sebring, Wendy’s, Dunlap Disposal, and as a towing recovery operator in Nashville, TN. Brook attended both Salem City Schools and West Branch School.
When he was younger, he and his brother Mike spent most of their time together. In their younger years, they would travel the country roads collecting pop bottles, going swimming, wrenching on cars, and sneaking cigarettes when possible. As time went on, their lives went their separate ways. Lots of good memories were made as they grew up together. Brook later moved from the area and lived near Nashville, TN. He was a caring and loving person to all those around him and to those who knew him. Making “Christmas” for people was something he looked forward to every year.
He had fun going camping and it didn’t matter if he was camping by tent or a regular camper. His most memorable times were with Ken and Bill Beeson. The Dale Hollow Reservoir in northern Tennessee was a favorite place to go camping and he had always hoped to go back.
Brook was a big NASCAR fan but additionally, was a fan of the classic car shows. He had a wide array of hobbies...going fishing, reading comic books of all kinds (his favorite being Batman). He also was a collector of old LP records, trains, and Hot Wheels.
He is survived by his wife, the former Robin Evelyn Mohr, his children; Bret Dimko and Teresa Mohr, brother Michael Dimko all of Salem.
There will be no services held at this time.
Arrangements were entrusted to the care of Arbaugh-Pearce-Greenisen & Sons Funeral and Cremation Services, Salem.
