"Uncle Ray" was such a great man. I remember the Cooks being a fun place to go when I was kid and we came to visit in Waukesha; I recall when I went to Kenya in 1994 Nan and Ray were among my supporters (and wrote a long letter about their experience there); and they took the time and energy to come meet our kids as recently as the last couple years for Hamilton Family Reunions. Hooray for him now being in heaven with his eternal Father, strong to save.

Sorry to hear the sad news. Ray was an inspiration to all he met. May we meet again!
Ray is a distant relative of mine, although I didn't know that when I had him for 10th grade biology. My mom went up to him at parent teacher night and asked him about his Cook ancestry and it turned out we were related.
I always liked him as a person and thought he was a great teacher. I am proud to be his relative and his former student.
Rest in peace,
Ray will be deeply missed by many and we will have fond memories to keep us going. He was a wonderful person that touched more lives than most of us. God bless.
When we would come together at family reunions, I always felt special in Rays' presence. He was an amazing man and one of my favorites. Love to all in this time of sorrow.
John and I were sorry to read of the passing of your father. His life was an example for all of us. You were fortunate to have had such a fine father and he certainly passed on his values to you. God bless you and your family.
I had the great pleasure of having Mr. Cook as my anatomy and physiology teacher at WCTC, where his knowledge was eagerly absorbed by a group of young nursing students. He was also my science teacher at BCHS, where we kids were more of a challenge for him, and I learned a life lesson with him. He had a deep impact on me as a young lady, I am grateful to him and thankful to have known him.
Mr Cook was the most concerned, caring instructor I had at WCTC for my nursing classes. He cared about you. I loved the stories he told in class. I have thought about you often sir and I will continue to pray for you and your family. God Bless and Love You.
I really enjoyed having you as my biology teacher at B.C.H.S. Class of '80. R.I.P. Mr. Cook.
R.I.P Mr. Cook. You were an inspiration to us 45 years ago and will remain so always.
