March 19, 1937 - November 11, 2020

RACINE – Donald B. Cook, age 83, passed away at the Milwaukee VA Community Living Center on November 11, 2020.

He was born on March 19, 1937 to parents Leroy and Belma (nee. Magnus) Cook. Donald was a proud veteran of the United States Army and Air Force Reserves, serving as a medic in the Army. Following his military service, he operated Creative Rehab with his son for 7 years, installing elevators and lifts for handicapped people.

He was very handy and could fix anything. Donald even built the first family home. He was a huge Packers fan and a season ticket holder for many years. His greatest joy though was spending time with his grandchildren. Donald will be dearly missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, David Cook; sisters, Patricia Reynolds and Sandy Roby.

Dear Cook Family, Am saddened to hear of the loss of your father and grandfather. I'm sure Don created many fun memories for all of you through the years, as he did for my sons Matthew and Jeffrey ... When he built a room size fire engine bed for them! Dave & I always had much together when he joined us in Green Bay for the games ...good memories. My family knows of your heart ache as we too have experienced loss. In love & kindness, Judi Cook
