Brooks was born May, 18, 1989 in Las Vegas to Wade and Renea Greenlee. He graduated from Carson High in 2007 and attended WNC in Carson and Lassen College in Susanville, CA.

Brooks worked at a variety of jobs, but was most proud of his work at an assisted living center in Carson City, where he entertained the residents with his dance, music, and stories.

His family and friends will always remember his gentle soul, infectious smile, and loving and caring personality.
