COOK, Robert Gregory

(a.k.a. Captain Cook)

February 12, 1930 – July 19, 2015

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Bob Cook. He passed away peacefully on Sunday July 19, 2015, at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital at 85 years of age.

Born on February 12, 1930 in Edmonton, Alberta, he moved to Nanaimo in 1979 and was a proud member of the local business community for many years (Captain Cook Building Supplies.)

The last 18 years of his life were happily spent on Mudge Island, B.C. He will be sadly missed by his family and his many friends.

No services will be held as Bob donated his remains to UBC Medical School. A private gathering will be held at a later date.
