Obituary

John Brooks Jr. of Boston, Massachusetts passed peacefully on July 23, 2019. He was born to Andy Ramjohn (deceased) and John Brooks Sr., joining Carsha (Brooks) Montgomery his sister. In 1984 John and his family relocated to Compton, California at the age of one; where he spent the better part of his years growing up.

John graduated from high school in San Pedro, California in 2001. Shortly, after graduation John moved back to Boston to reconnect with his late mother Andy until her passing in 2011. John met Francesca Jeudy in 2009, who gave birth to their beautiful and energetic daughter Mae Andy Brooks. Mae is full of John’s spirit and carries herself with the same charisma as her father.

John danced to the beat his own drum literally and figuratively. He embraced life in a way that some envied. John’s love was unconditional and passionate, he made friends everywhere he went embracing anyone. He was a lot like his mom as their mantra was to live life to the fullest.

John was active and you might see him riding down the street on his skateboard, backpack on and singing or rapping to something with a fly beat. He had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed spending time with his daughter; fishing, rowing a boat or playing at the park. The love he personified for his daughter was powerful and you felt while in their presence
.
John had a passion for food, at that good food! If you were his Facebook friend you would know. He would post videos and picture of his adventurous and diverse cuisine. He loved music and dancing, you would often see him showing off his Cali style moves with a Caribbean flare. John had a unique style that he pulled off well. John was definitely one of a kind!

John is survived by his daughter Mae Andy Brooks; his father John Brooks Sr.; his siblings Carsha (Brooks) Montgomery and her husband Cornelius Montgomery, Izail and Endacha Brooks; his niece and nephew Antwain Scott Jr. and Corii Montgomery; his grandmothers Dorothy Brooks and Patricia Mitchell; his uncles Tony Brooks, and Derek Mitchell; his aunts Melinda Mitchell and Deborah Carrillo; and many cousins Arsenio Brooks, Anastasia, Cherisse, Alvin Jr., Kelsey, Arianna, Perry, Brittani, Beth, Toni, Darius, Kayden, Khymani, Rhiley, and King.
