It is with a broken Heart that I am announcing the passing of my dad Eric Franklin Cook. Suddenly and unexpectedly on Aug 14th he was admitted to BGH with double pneumonia. He was unfortunately unable to fight the infection and passed Aug 30 in his 77th year.
He was a good, kind and humble man. He worked solid for almost 50 years to provide a comfortable life for his family. Starting at Massey Ferguson in Brantford Ontario Canada for 21 years he was in the purchasing dept. until the company closed. He then took a job as a purchaser In Guelph. Next he made a big life changing move in 1997 and took a position in Missouri U.S.A. with AGCO CORP. Next moving within the company to Kansas and finally Georgia where he retired 8 years ago. He spent his well earned retirement relaxing, watching sports, boating and fishing.
He leaves behind and will be deeply missed by his wife Donna Cook (Jacobson); his daughter Suzanne Lechlitner (Cook) and her husband Frank Lechlitner, his grandchildren Barett Hill, Trinaty Hill and Faith Lechlitner; and his son Trevor Cook. Survived by his sister Bonnie (John Cumin 2014) nieces Lisa (Curt), Robin (Dave), Jenny(Chuck) and their respective families. Predeceased by his parents Rebecca (Rhea) (2009)and John (2004) Cook.
