Mr. Roger C. Cook, age 63, died November 20th, in the Town of Alexandria. There will be a graveside committal service at 10am on Thursday, Dec. 3rd, at Redwood Cemetery in Redwood. There will be no calling hours.
Roger was born September 5th, 1952 in Theresa, the son of Benton and June Wingrath Cook. He graduated from Alexandria Bay High School.
On Dec. 1st, 1971, he enlisted in the United States Air Force, being honorably discharged on Nov. 28, 1975 at the rank of Staff Sargent.
Roger was a Tool and Dye Maker at various places around the United States.
Surviving are a son Justan (Stacey) Cook of Seattle, Washington; one grandson; two sisters, Christine (David) Gascon of Hammond, and Suzanne Cook of Batavia; one brother, Benton Jr.; nieces and nephews.
One brother, Karl, from Redwood, died before him.
May Roger’s family and friends be comforted by God’s promise to “Swallow up death forever, and wipe away every tear from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Remembering too the promise of the resurrection hope, for both the Unrighteous and Righteous. (Acts 24:15)
My condolences to Roger’s family. Roger and I were co-workers for several years in Watertown and became good friends. It was sad to see him move to Barstow, but we stayed in touch for a few years when he would come home to visit in the fall. We spent some time at the Redwood cottage on Butterfield lake, and also at my camp on Tug Hill. I had hoped to touch base with him last summer at the cottage when I stopped by , but no luck. His gruff manor, and matter-of-fact speaking is something I will always remember and miss. He was a good friend, a good tool & die maker, and he will surely be missed. Rest In Peace Roger.
