1 of 1 | Posted by: Bob Mersed

Roy E. Cook, 76, of East Granby, beloved husband of Marion (Miller) Cook, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 15, 2016 at UCONN Medical Center. It should be noted that if he were in charge of his obituary, rather than his family, it would have been published in a timely fashion. Born in Center, NE to the late Joseph and Dena (Helmhout) Cook, he was raised in Nebraska and has been an East Granby resident for over 50 years. Roy was a graduate of the University of Nebraska where he played with the Cornhuskers marching band. He continued to root for the Cornhuskers football team throughout his life. He was an Eagle Scout and served his country proudly with the US Air Force at Langley Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. Roy was an active member of the Unitarian Society of Hartford where he served on the building and grounds committee. He worked as an architect and was proud to have designed schools for most of his career. He also had an artistic side writing poetry and painting watercolors. He loved the community and beauty of Star Island off the coast of New Hampshire. He was a very disciplined man who valued his integrity and meticulously documented his life, and attempted to keep his family and loved ones organized in spite of their best efforts. An exceptional man, husband, father and grandfather, he will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Besides his wife Marion of East Granby he is survived by his son David Cook and his wife Suzanne of Suwanee, GA; his daughter Jennifer Cook of East Granby; his brother Jim Cook and his wife Connie of Lincoln, NE; his granddaughter Annabelle Cook; and close family friend, Jennifer Pike of Berlin, MA. Memorial service will be held at 11 AM Saturday, April 2 at the Unitarian Society Bloomfield Ave Hartford.
