Billy ‘Bill’ David Cook

He is also survived by his grandchildren, Dana Jordan and Cori Teal Patrum; five sisters; two brothers; a host of nieces and nephews; two very close friends, Bill Herring and “Boots” Phillips; as well as all of his loving church family.
He began his lifelong career as a “parts man” at a local parts store. He happily worked there for many years before swapping to a company in Birmingham and became a senior parts salesman.

Bill was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, person, and friend. He will be greatly missed by everyone left behind. We love you, Pop. We know that you are watching over us in our time of grief. Remaining true to his character, Bill had requested that in lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to send condolences do so by making a donation to Omega Hospice in his name, which would be greatly appreciated. Any donations should be made to Omega Hospice, 101 2nd Ave. SE, Cullman, AL 35055 (phone 256-737-1793).
The family would like to thank all of the Hospice nurses who provided their time and hospitality over the past few months.
