It is with profound sadness that his family announces the passing of William (Bill) Clifton Cook, P.Eng, of Calgary, AB and Radium, BC, who passed away in Invermere, BC on September 28, 2004. Bill passed on as he lived, with courage, dignity and honour.
Born in Smithers, BC on November 9, 1927, Bill was the third of “the 4 boys” born to the late Fred and Vida (Moxley) Cook. Bill is survived by a large and loving family: his wife Cecelia Margretta; his children, Dr. Suzanne (Larry) Barnes, of Eagle, CO, Joanne (Allan) Halverson, of Calgary, William Alan (Renee) Cook, of Calgary, Louise Cook, of Surrey, BC, Christine (Deborah) Thomas, of Vancouver, BC, and Kathleen (Prof. George) Stawn, of Cochrane, AB; his grandchildren, Jennifer, Brett, Ryan, Alana, Stephanie, and Richard; his brothers, Dr. Fred (Mary), Robert (Marion) and Richard (Pat); and his mother-in-law Irene Green. He was predeceased by his infant grandson, Graham Cook on May 30, 1999. Bill also leaves many friends and acquaintances to mourn his passing.
A proud graduate of the University of British Columbia, and President of Corab Services Ltd., Bill earned the respect and admiration of many business associates. Bill loved to learn, to teach, and to challenge himself and those around him. He was an enthusiastic outdoorsman, a lover of nature, and an avid sportsman. Bill took great pleasure in traveling the globe with his wife.
