Larry Don Cook

In memory of Larry Don Cook, a loving husband, father and grandfather who passed away peacefully at his Starrville, Texas home on April 15, 2024, just a week before his 81st birthday.

Born in Chandler, Texas, on April 22 of 1943 to Roy and Alice Cook, Larry's lively spirit and love of humor brightened the lives of all who knew him. Known for his playful nature and affinity for cracking jokes, Larry's mischievous grin could always bring a smile to everyone around him. Larry adored spending time with his grandchildren, cherishing every moment he shared with them.

Larry's passion for farming and raising cattle kept him busy, but he always made time for family adventures and travel, often with his beloved wife of many years, Faye Cook. A true Texan at heart, Larry bled blue for his favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys, and relished watching classic western films.

Additionally, Larry found purpose in serving his community as a volunteer fireman at both the Dixie and Winona Fire Departments. His dedication to helping others and willingness to lend a hand in times of need touched countless lives and will be remembered by many.

A man of faith, Larry drew strength from his belief in the Lord and found solace in his spiritual connection. He was a steadfast pillar in his community, embodying kindness, generosity, and unwavering love for his family and friends.

Larry is survived by his beloved wife, Faye cook; children, Cynthia Cook, Kevin Cook and Toni, Steven Cook and Sarah, Jeff Cook and Jamie as well as Jason Cook and Ladona; grandchildren, Jennifer, Julie, Andy, Stormy, Misti, Jaxxon, Juddson, Colten and London; as well as several great-grandchildren.

Larry is preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Alice Cook; siblings, Roy Lee Jr, Mary Evelyn, Betty Lou and John Jackson; as well as a grandchild, Bailee Cook.
