Ray Cook

Mr. Norman Ray Cook, 87, of Buena Vista, died Tuesday, December 14, 2021, at St. Francis Hospital in Columbus, Georgia. Graveside funeral services will be held at 11:00AM on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at New Providence Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. David Chapman officiating. The family will greet friends at the graveside one hour prior to the service beginning at 10:00AM.

Mr. Cook was born on October 10, 1934, to Norman and Mattie Greene Cook in Marion County Georgia. He married Beatrice Covington and they had six children, Cecelia, Randy, Don, Pam, Samantha, and Jessie. He retired from Warner Robins Air Force Base, where he was an airplane civil service worker. Ray lived a fulfilling life as a husband, father, Pawpaw, and a friend to many. He enjoyed farming, giving out watermelons, fishing, hunting, throwing a fish fry, and riding his four-wheeler or side by side out in the country. He was also an active member of New Providence Baptist Church of Buena Vista and a Mason at the Masonic Lodge in Tazewell, Georgia. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers (Leon and George), and many friends and relatives.

Ray is survived by the loving community of Buena Vista and his wife of 67 years, Mrs. Beatrice Cook, their three sons: Don (Dorothy) Cook, Randy (Tina) Cook, Jessie Cook, their three daughters: Cecelia (Clifford) Waller, Pam Cook, and Samantha (Jason) Spigner. Mr. Cook is also survived by a slew of grandchildren whom he loved very much: Brandy, Zoey, and Haven Kimbrell, Brent (Ashley), Peyton, and Harper Waller, Mandy Cook, Amanda (Daniel) Lesneski, Randall (Mandy), Maren and Lily Cook, Josh and Rachel Spigner, Chelsie and Casey Barboza, and Ben Cook.

Way-Watson Funeral Home, 1052 Dr. Deryl Hart Road, Buena Vista, Georgia has been entrusted with these arrangements.
