G. William Brooks, an artist and sales representative who also co-owned a Baltimore County go-kart and miniature golf business, died in his sleep at his White Marsh home Nov. 29. He was 31. The cause of death has not been determined.

Born in Bethesda, he grew up in Fairfax, Va., and later in San Antonio, where he graduated from high school in 1991. He earned a bachelor's degree in environmental design at Texas A&M University in 1994 and a master's degree in imaging and digital arts at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 1999.

Together with his partner of five years, Nick Scarpulla, Mr. Brooks, known as Will, owned and operated The Go-Kart Track Inc. in White Marsh. He was a sales representative for Chanel and spent a lot of time on his art - painting, sculpting and composing music. He was also a voracious reader.

Services were held Friday in Towson and yesterday in Tennessee, where his mother, Carolyn N. Brooks, lives.

In addition to his partner and his mother, Mr. Brooks is survived by two brothers, David Brooks of New York, N.Y., and Richard Brooks of Durham, N.C.
