"I am looking for a wife who is ready, willing and able to have children as soon as possible," the ad said. "I look just like my picture except I now have gray hair."
The ad went on to describe Baron Brooks' ideal wife: Preferably, she would be between 34 and 38 years old; ideally she would have no children from any previous marriages and she would be expected to become a stay-at-home mom if she were to have any children with Baron Brooks.
"If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me," the ad said. "I have asked my father to screen people for me. He will be at the Coeur d'Alene Resort."
However, Baron Brooks, who owns a pair of health food stores in Salt Lake City, said he had nothing to do with the advertisement.
"My father did this without my consent," Baron Brooks told the Spokesman-Review. "I can't even describe to you how embarrassing and ridiculous this is."
He described his father as "nuts," "neurotic" and "passive-aggressive" while speaking with the paper. Arthur Brooks recently went into congestive heart failure and, sometimes motivated by his want to have a grandson, "he's done some really kooky stuff," Baron Brooks said.
"This one takes the cake," he added.
Still, Baron Brooks said he has had hard time meeting women in Salt Lake City, and so he won't stop his dad from interviewing any interested women.
"What am I supposed to do? He already did it," Baron Brooks told the Statesman-Review. "No sense in defusing a bomb once it's already gone off."
