March 30, 1968 - August 16, 2017


Andrew Cookson, 49, passed away in his sleep on August 16. He was born on March 30, 1968 in New Brunswick, NJ to Robert and Agnes Cookson.

After graduating from Old Dominion University, Andrew worked as a realtor in the Wilmington area for a number of years. He then relocated to the Triangle area to attend North Carolina Central University law school. Andrew earned his Juris Doctor in 2003 and established the law firm Gurley & Cookson, PLLC in the North Raleigh area. One of Andrew's greatest joys was assisting people in need and he worked to provide quality, friendly legal services. His firm continues to serve the North Raleigh real estate community under the name Cookson & Cromer, PLLC.

Andrew and his wife, Lauren, were happily married for 10 years. Together they enjoyed raising their daughters, traveling, and watching hockey. Andrew was an avid lover of sports particularly, hockey (Go Hurricanes!), baseball (Go Mets!), and golf. One of the highlights of his life was watching the Hurricanes win the Stanley Cup.

Andrew is survived by his wife, Lauren; his daughters, Chloe, Keira, and Lucy and his mother, Agnes Cookson of Virginia Beach, VA; his brothers, Robert Cookson of Humble, TX and Michael Cookson of Bracey VA; his sisters, Clare Lewis of Natick, MA and Ruth Cookson of Norfolk, VA; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Andrew was preceded in death by his father, Robert Cookson, his sister, Catharine Cookson, and by his beloved daughter Paisley Cookson.

A service to celebrate his life will be held at St. Mark's United Methodist Church, 4801 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609, on Saturday, August 19, at 2 PM. The family will be greeting friends and relatives immediately following the service. Condolences: rfhr.com
