Brooks was born on March 4, 1968 at Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah. Brooks was the second child to Wendell K Bradshaw and Karolyn Bennett Hawkins.
Brooks grew up in Cedar City, Utah. He was blessed to have both sets of his grandparents living only blocks away from each other. Brooks cherished his relationships with his grandparents. One of Brooks’ fondest memories was helping at his Grandpa Bradshaw’s ranch in Panguitch, Utah. It was during this time that Brooks developed perseverance and grit, which he carried throughout his life and was the foundation of the man he became.
He attended area schools, graduating from Cedar High School in 1986. After high school, he served in the Utah National Guard. He was honorably discharged in 1992 after serving 6 years. During his time in the military, he successfully completed training as an EMT. Brooks used this training to assist in saving the lives of many individuals.
Brooks served a two-year LDS mission in the Kentucky Louisville Mission. Brooks had a strong testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in several callings throughout his life.
