Obituary for George "G.W." Wesley Cook

George Wesley “G.W.” Cook of the Sandhill Community passed from this life after a brief illness on November 8, 2018 surrounded by his family. Today he is standing tall plowing perfect rows of tomatoes for all of Heaven to enjoy. Mr. Cook’s love for gardening and camping is a legacy for all to remember. Barbara, his wife, and Mr. Cook traveled over the United States in their motor home making memories. Barbara says he was the happiest when he was cutting grass. He showed Craig, his son, how to have a great work ethic. Father and son did everything together from yard work, painting, gardens, and splitting wood to just sitting in the shop and solving world problems, “I’m going to miss you Dad.” Their granddaughter Courtney was their camping buddy spending summers together in Florida. Mr. Cook helped teach her to swim, drive a golf cart, cut grass and “rest her eyes” after lunch.
He retired from the University of West Georgia in 1993 as the maintenance supervisor over the paint department – even in work he and Barbara were together. She was dispatch/secretary for his department. True love as a couple. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Barbara Boatright Cook; son, Craig (Debby) Cook; granddaughter, Courtney Cook; brother, Jackie (Florene) Cook; sisters-in-love, Deloris Wiggins, Sherrie Persons and Gwen Strickland.
Funeral service will be conducted Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 4:00 PM from Martin & Hightower Heritage Chapel with Min. Allen Howard officiating. Interment will follow in Midway Macedonia Church Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Evan Sprewell, Michael Strickland, Wesley Cook, Mike Gibbs, Ryan Mayo, and Wes Phillips. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Friday, November 09, 2018 from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM. Messages of condolences can be sent to the family at www.martin-hightower.com .
