COOKE – Robert
1/8/1939 – 13/1/2020
Husband of Aileen (dec). Devoted partner of Olivia. Loved father and father-in-law of Cherralee and George, Tim, Lisa and Alan. Loved Pop of 8 grandchildren.
A most beautiful dad who gave his entire life. A true gentleman who put others first. Dad, you have earned your eternal peace and place beside God.
We will miss those Irish eyes and love you forever. x
I will miss Bob’s wonderful moustache, which could not hide his beaming smile joining his brilliant twinkling eyes. No matter how loud he spoke, I could not hear his voice as I could not see his lips. When I did get to catch his words, his accent was too thick for my part-Irish inherited ears, eventually I heard him. I look forward to remembering his tight hugs as I lifted my ears closer to hear him. And of the knowledge he taught me, of his wise words to impart, being welcomed, and cared about, is all wrapped up in his love. A true gentleman, noble in my world, and I am so very glad I got to meet and know you more, but certainly not earlier as when our paths had crossed during history.January 17, 2020
Loving and missing you so very much.

I miss Bob’s caring heart and loving ways, his beautiful eyes and the love we shared, beautiful times we had together. I love you always and forever. We did nearly everything together. It was a beautiful and moving funeral service, a celebration of Bob’s life, a life well lived. Bob made my world a brighter place. I miss our talks, his irish smiling eyes & his bright loving, compassionate spirit. Lots of love Always and Forever my sweetie Bob, from your Olivia xxooFebruary 21, 2020
