In Memory

Roger William Cook - Class Of 1943

Roger William Cook

Roger passed away from heart disease in Honokaa, Hawaii, September 11, 2008.  He was born in South Pasadena on September 29, 1925.  He was a Marine vet of World War II.  He drank and smoked enough to kill six guys but he had the genetic makeup of a horse.  We loved him anyway.  I met Roger in the third grade at Lincoln School.  He grew to 6'4 1/2" and over the years, particularly the high school years, we had many great adventures.  He is fondly remembered by me and also his long-time friend, Bud Carter.

Roger is survived by his four sons, David, Buddy, Deane, and Dan.
