(KCEN) -- Former Texas Congressman Jack Brooks has died.
He was in the Dallas motorcade when JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
Brooks was in the background, right behind Jackie Kennedy in the iconic photo showing President Johnson later taking the oath of office aboard Air Force One.
Brooks died last night at a hospital in Beaumont after a sudden illness.
He spent over four decades in Congress and was just shy of his 90th birthday.
