Arthur Brooks (Impressions) R I P

It has been reported on Facebook that Arthur Brooks of the Impressions has passed away.

However, I can't find details of this anywhere else, including in the local Chattanooga press. Anyone know anything about this sad happening ?

Just found this Obit in the Chattanooga Times Free Press but no link to him being in the Impressions at all ............

Arthur Brooks, 82, passed away Sunday, Nov. 22, 2015, in a local hospital. Arrangements by John P. Franklin Funeral Home, 1101 Dodds Avenue.

That seems strange as they ran stories about his involvement in the group just over a year ago ....
 
........  & this one less than 3 years ago ...... 
 
Along with his brother Richard, he recorded in Detroit (as the Brooks Brothers) after quitting the Impressions.

Very sad news - always loved the Impressions but I had no idea until recent years that the Brooks Brothers were also Bits n' Pieces of 'Keep On Running Away' fame..........R.I.P.
