Obituary

 

IF YOU ARE READING THIS TODAY, IT MEANS I HAVE PASSED ON TO HOPEFULLY VISIT MY PARENTS AND FRIENDS WHO LEFT THIS EARTH BEFORE ME.

I WAS BORN IN MIDDLEFIELD, MA TO CHARLES AND HELEN OLDS COOK.  MY BROTHER WENDELL AND I HAD A WONDERFUL CHILDHOOD AMONGST A LARGE FAMILY.  AFTER HIGH SCHOOL I WORKED BUILDING HOMES IN PITTSFIELD.  AFTER THE BIRTH OF MY TWO DAUGHTERS,  CORRY AND JENNIFER, I WENT TO WORK WITH PEARSON CONSTRUCTION AND I BUILT COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS THROUGHOUT HAMPDEN COUNTY.  MEDICAL FACILITIES WERE MY FAVORITE.  I WAS PRESIDENT OF THE MIDDLEFIELD FAIR FOR 23 YEARS.  AFTER RETIRING I MET UP WITH JANICE HUGHES AND WE WORKED TOGETHER IN HER FOOD BUSINESS FOR 26 YEARS.  WHAT A CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE!  WE ALSO TRAVELED THE COUNTRY TOGETHER ENJOYING HORSEPULLING IN MANY STATES. WE WINTERED IN BROOKSVILLE, FLORIDA WHERE WE ENJOYED THE WARM WEATHER AND OUR AMAZING FRIENDS.  I’VE DONE SO MUCH IN MY LIFE THAT I HAVE NO REGRETS.  I SADLY LEAVE BEHIND MY BROTHER,  WENDELL (CAROLE) COOK OF GRESHAM OREGON, MY DAUGHTERS CORRY (CHIP) CRUMP, JENNIFER (DAVID) MORRISON, “SON” DELMONT (TRACY) KEYES, “DAUGHTER” JEAN HUGHES, THE LOVE OF MY LIFE JANICE, 5 GRANDCHILDREN,  LEXI, EMILY, NEAL, NICK AND LANE.  I AM PREDECEASED BY THEIDA, THE MOTHER OF MY GIRLS, ROSEMARY SENTER COOK, AND LAUREN CRUMP, MY GRANDAUGHTER.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR A WONDERFUL LIFE.
