Kenneth Edward Cook, Jr. was born in Claremore, Oklahoma on September 27, 1966 to Kenneth Edward and Jessie Louise Cook (Rogers). He passed away at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa on September 23, 2019 at the age of 52.
Kenny was raised with his 4 sisters all over as his dad moved around as an oilfield driller. The family lived in 46 states as well as Canada and Mexico. He graduated from Glenpool High School in 1985 and worked as a fabricator and welder. He liked being busy and enjoyed rebuilding small engines. He also was very talented at woodworking and made many chests, tables and benches. His longest relationship was 17 years…with his cat Smokey.
He was proud of his Cherokee heritage and lived his life always being helpful and kind. He had the big heart and would give his last dollar to someone if they needed it. He was a gentleman and would always stand and offer his seat to others and once you were his friend, it was for life. He was a wonderful brother and uncle. One of his most recent projects was rebuilding a go cart for his great-nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents Kenneth Edward Cook and Jessie Louise Tooley and nephews Jason Hickman and Daniel Brother Walkingstick. Kenny is survived by his 4 sisters; Patty Breshnehen (Roger), Donna Walkingstick (Gip Cowan), Kathryn Hicks (Les) and Paula Cook (Michael Emuze).
