Obituary for George Edward Cook, Sr.

George Edward Cook, Sr., age 81 years, a resident of Valley Bend, WV departed this life early Friday morning January 4, 2019 at his home surrounded by his two children, a special friend, and under the care of West Virginia Caring.
He was born Saturday, April 3, 1937 at Wymer, WV, a son of the late James and Vernie Tingler Cook. Surviving are one son, George Edward Cook, Jr. and companion Anette Kirby of Palmyra, VA; one daughter, Luanne Cook and fiancé Kyle Whetsel of Cumberland, MD; three brothers, Howard Cook of St. Clairsville, OH, Gene “Buck” Cook of Elkins, Jerry Cook of Russia; three grandchildren, Priscilla Fitz and husband Paul of Charlottesville, VA, Heather Thomas and husband Tristen of Staunton, VA, Amanda Delaney and husband Brandon of New Port Richey, FL; five great grandchildren, Gunner, Colby, Mackenzie, Jeremiah, Natalie and one on the way; and several nieces and nephews.
Preceding him in death are six brothers, Emmett, Ernest, Jack, Paul, Joe, and James “Felix” Cook; and three sisters, Ina Mae Cook, Hazel Lambert, and Edna Fleming.
He attended the schools of Harman, was a Veteran of the Korean Conflict having served with the U. S. Army stationed in France. He drove an 18 Wheeler for D & W Truck Line for over thirty years from which he retired and then owned and operated George E. Cook Trucking. He was instrumental in the planning and construction of the Veterans Memorial Wall in Parsons. He was a previous Tucker County City Council member, an associate member of the Vietnam Veteran Association, the American Legion and the V.F.W. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, yard work, watching westerns, and was very involved with Veterans. He enjoyed spending time with his buddy Charles Lowther and going to car shows. It is not a stretch to say that everyone loved George. He will be truly missed.
