COOK, Melvin Leslie

February 16, 1933 – Calgary, Alberta
November 29, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Sorrow fills our hearts, a sorrow that is deep and personal. Melvin left the door of life and departed from us on Saturday, November 29, 2014.

Born February 16, 1933 in Calgary, he was the son of Alexander and Katherine Cook. Melvin was employed for many years at Shell Oil Jumping Pound until his retirement. He was blunt with his comments and always let you know where you stood with him, but you always knew he loved you. His passing was sudden and for that we are grateful. May you find peace in God’s arms.

“God saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered ‘Peace be thine’.”

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Calgary Humane Society, 4455 – 110th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 2T7, Telephone: (403)205-4455,

In living memory of Melvin Cook, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

Offer Condolence for the family of COOK, Melvin Leslie
