Elder Cook’s birthday is September 8. He will be 80 years old this year!

When he was in first grade, he gave a pair of boots to a friend during a fire drill. “I didn’t want his feet to be cold in the snow,” he said.

He played football and basketball in high school.

He served a mission in England. One of his companions was Elder Jeffrey R. Holland.

He and his wife, Mary, have three children and 11 grandchildren.

“We must live by faith and not by fear.”
