Carl "Bruce" Cook Obituary
Carl "Bruce" Cook


Carl "Bruce" Cook passed away peacefully on Oct 7th surrounded by his loving family. Bruce was born in South Amboy, grew up in Keyport and was a Holmdel resident for the past 25 years. He was a member of Iron Workers Local 11 retiring in 2003. Few people are fortunate enough to have enjoyed the multitude of hobbies Bruce enjoyed. He loved the outdoors and was a passionate deer hunter and fisherman. He raced cars, speed skiffs, and was talented enough to build anything from dune buggies to beautiful homes.

But his biggest passion was his family. Surviving are his wife of 42 years Linda (Boncada) Cook and their two sons David and Alan Cook, daughters-in-law Amber Cook and Melissa Cook along with four beautiful grandsons Nathan, Kyle, Brady and Ryan Cook.

Also surviving are his siblings Norman Currie, Barbara Currie-Naffin and Sandra Shevlin.

Visitation Tuesday, October 10th 4:00-8:00 pm at the Holmdel Funeral Home, 26 South Holmdel Road, Holmdel. Funeral service Wednesday, October 11th at 11:00 am at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name can be made to the Holy Family St. Vincent DePaul Society, 727 Route 36, Union Beach, NJ 07735 or Fulfill, The Food Bank of Monmouth/Ocean Counties, 3300 Route 66, Neptune, NJ 07753.
