Clinton

Rev. McCoy “Cookie” Cook, age 83 of Clinton, Tennessee passed away on Friday, March 24, 2023 at his home surrounded by his family and loved ones. He was born on May 29, 1939 in Huntsville, Tennessee and was the son of the late Alonzo and Nettie Jeffers Cook. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife Mary Phillips Cook; brothers Boyd Cook and Creed Cook; sister Laurie Cook; and son-in-law Bennie Hartley.

Cookie was someone who loved life, loved people and never met a stranger. He loved the Lord and loved reading his Bible. He loved going to church, singing and playing his guitar. He loved preaching and teaching the Gospel. When he couldn’t go to church due bad health he never lost his faith in God, even with dementia. Most of all he loved spending time with his family and grandchildren. He was a caring and devoted man.

He is survived by his daughters, Joyce Hartley and partner Larry Coward of Clinton, Tennessee and Judy Cook and Buddy Ray of Clinton, Tennessee; grandchildren Emily Hartley and Matthew Hartley; great-grandchildren Christopher Hartley and Jade Hartley, and other relatives and friends. The family would like to thank the nurses with UT Hospice for their excellent care and support.
