Arnold (Cookie) Cook


Arnold Cook known to his friends as Cookie, passed away on July 13, 2012 at

the age of 76 with his dog

Abby. Cookie lived life to

the fullest, while being

blessed with a great

sense of humor. He was

predeceased by his sweetheart Donalda of 51 years, his daughter Tracey Lee and granddaughter Taylor Colleen.  He was born in Jasper, Alberta in 1935 but made his home here in Kelowna where he raised his four children, Doug (Val), Don (Lynn), Shaun (Wendy), Colleen (Terry).  Cookie’s nine grandchildren were not only his legacy but also his pride, Cody, Dylan, Tyson, Taija, Devin, Trevor, Lindsay, Jesse and Jady. He is also survived by his brother Brian (Donna) and sister Sharon (Arden).  Cookie spent years doing what he loved, working on the pipeline that gave him the opportunity to make

many lifelong friends and colleagues.  He would often

be overheard unleashing his clever one-liners.  After Donalda’s death Cookie restored a 1955 Buick convertible of which was the same type of car he drove when he and Donalda met.  We invite all family and friends to celebrate Cookie’s life on August 18, 2012, 2pm at the Parkinson Rec Centre, 1800 Parkinson Way, Kelowna, BC.  As they would say on the pipeline his drag up party!  Friends are welcome to share their stories and memories of the man we love.
