Obituary for Feb. 8, 2013


Richard Cook

Baker City, 1932-2013

Richard Dean Cook, 80, of Baker City, died Feb. 7, 2013.

He passed quietly in his sleep after a protracted battle with complications from lung disease, family members said.

No service is planned at this time.

He was born on Oct. 20, 1932. 

His family celebrates his life, and mourns his passing. He was husband to Marcia L. Cook and father to Deanna Camp, Sheryl Cook and Mike Cook. 

They remember Dick/Dad as enjoying his retirement from his lifelong Boeing Aerospace career, spanning 32 years. He was an avid camper, outdoorsman and Minnesota farm kid. He was a Korean War veteran, serving in the Triple Nickel (555 infantry battalion).

He’s also remembered as an actively engaged father of three, grandfather of six and as a great-grandfather of twin boys.

He is celebrated as a fixer of cars, master barbecuer and tinkerer of life. 

“He lived a good life and took care of his wife and family to the best of his ability,” family members said. “We will forever remember him sitting in his favorite chair with his cocker spaniel, Corky, on his deck watching the sun go down over the Elkhorns.”
