Exact date of birth unknown. Jack Dempsey's sparring partner in early 1926, Brooks died at Richmond, Virginia, Feb. 18, 1926, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He reportedly was 20-years-old, which does not seem quite right. Police theorized he had committed suicide after learning that his girlfriend had left him back in Wichita, Kansas. Feb. 18, 1926 Spokane Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA, USA)
