Such a good man, and a life well lived. I'll always remember Mr. Cook as happy, friendly, funny, and most of all, kind. The legacy he left is reflected in his terrific family. Thinking of you all, with love--

I had a handful of “heroes” growing up, and one of them was Bob Cook, and another one (in my very early years) just so happened to be his father, “Grampa Cookey”. Although I didn't frequently see Bob in my adult years, the memories I shared with him and his family will last a lifetime. One of the most vivid and happiest memories of my life was a trip that my Mom, 2 sisters, and I took with the Cook family to Disneyland. Bob packed up their brand new Chevy Caprice station wagon with Sharon and Gerry, and my 2 sisters and me, (ages 11 to 14), and hit the road for Anaheim. It was a 4 day, 3 night trip, camping along the way. Our Mothers would fly down and meet us in California (very smart ladies!). I didn't think there was anything out of the ordinary at the time. I now know that this act of bravery and patience, would surely guarantee him a knighthood, as well as sainthood. After arriving and spending the next 3 days in Disneyland, all 8 of us piled into the car again, for the 2 week trip home, once again, camping along the way. We moved to a different campground each day, and we all chipped in, setting up camp, breaking camp, and loading the car for the next leg of the trip. I not only had one of the best times of my life, but I learned a lot about teamwork and responsibility, thanks to Bob Cook; A hero I will never forget. Reed Transtrom
