Robert R. “Bob” Cook, 83, of Victor, passed away early in the morning, Tuesday, October 29, 2013, at the Valley View Estates, Hamilton, MT.
Bob was born June 5, 1930, to Kenneth and Marion B. (Rutherford) Cook in Ogdensburg, New York.
Bob was a mechanic for Colorado Kenworth. He followed his dream and moved to Montana when he retired. There he was very active with the local seniors’ group and First Baptist Church. Bob started a traveling troupe, writing and acting in historical reenactments of Montana’s colorful past. Eventually his wife’s failing health made traveling impossible and Bob left the troupe.
Bob was preceded in death by his wife Glenna Mai, his parents, his brother Merlyn and his grandson Justin.
He is survived by his children: Deborah L. Emerick (John), Castle Rock, CO; Diana L. Ross (Mike), Elizabeth, CO; James R. Cook, Monument, CO; Joseph E. Cook (Marlene), Graham, WA; three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
A memorial service is being planned in Castle Rock, Colorado. A graveside memorial will be held later in Vesper, New York.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations in his name be made to First Baptist Church of Stevensville, MT.
