Clarence was born on August 2nd, 1938 in Rowan Co. to the late Albert Keller Cook and Myrtle Mae Pless Cook. He is also preceded in death by his brother, Albert “Paul” Cook.
Clarence was a Veteran of the U.S. Air Force where he learned skills to prepare him for his 27-year career at AT&T as a microwave technician. After retiring from AT&T, Clarence decided to go back to work for another 25 years at the Hospital. He was a longtime member of New Gilead Reformed Church and loved anything to do with the outdoors: from fishing to chopping wood, he enjoyed being outdoors. He also enjoyed going to auctions and spending time with his family, reading and watching Fox News.
