Glen D. Cook, age 71, passed away at Kennestone Hospital on December 8, 2020. 

He was born in Sikeston, MO to Amzie and Goldie Cook on August 29, 1949. He is preceded in death by his parents, brother, William “Lee” Cook and two sisters, Yvonne Stevens and Anna Baker.

Glen was a retired pipefitter, working at various petrochemical plants while he resided in Louisiana. He was a prolific storyteller, loved to make people laugh or just forget their troubles for a few moments. He never met a stranger. He had a big heart and an enduring zest for life. Glen loved to sing and many a resident at the complex where he lived caught him singing old gospel hymns. Although he suffered from a debilitating neuromuscular disease that eventually stole his ability to walk, he was upbeat and would say, “you can laugh about it or cry about it, and I choose to laugh.”

He is survived by his daughter, Lisa Cook of Kennesaw, GA; brother, James Cook of Goose Creek, SC; sister, Retha Davidson of Fenton, MO and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be planned at a future date for family and friends to celebrate his life.

I remember Glenn from our high school day, both of us attending the United Pentecostal Church in Morley in those day, he was always a hoot and a very good friend. Reply to this comment

Glen and I grew up together and lived side by side in Morley for about 5 years . He was a great friend and will be missed by all those that knew him. Reply to this comment

The memories of all the fun times going to grandpa and grandma Cooks. Getting together with our aunts and uncles. Glen was so fun. Moving to Wyoming for 40 years I missed getting with everybody so I lost track of a lot of things. I know Glen struggled with his health. I know now he has a new body and is whole. I send my love to his daughter. May God comfort you. Love Beverly Reply to this comment

Glen, the best brother anyone could ever have. You were always happy, smiling, laughing and trying to make others feel the same way. We had a lot of fun growing up on the farm raising livestock, hunting, fishing and swimming in the old swimming hole. I will miss you very much. It’s not goodbye but we will see you later. Love you Reply to this comment

Uncle Glen, growing up was always a thrill to go to grandma and grandpa Cook’s for Christmas and the extended family would meet and have a great time. Family reunions what stories would be told, true or a little bit stretched. Oh but the laughter and fun. Glen you will be greatly missed. Love, your niece Karen Reply to this comment
