He loved the Lord almighty and had accepted him as his personal Savior at an early age. He was of the Baptist faith.

Brian had a brilliant mind and loved to share his knowledge with others. Education was extremely important to him.  He always said, “An education and knowledge was something that could never be taken from you.” He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree with his Major in Management and Organizational Development from Spring Arbor University, Mich., and had put significant work in to his Masters Degree.  He was a very giving man, few people knew that he wrote numerous grants through the years that benefited many people and organizations here in Georgia and in Michigan. He was an entrepreneur at heart and always had a new idea he was working on.  He loved to fish and fell in love with Lake Seminole and the wonderful people of Seminole County whom he lovingly referred to as family.

He leaves behind his devoted wife of 33 years, Karen; his son, Ian, who was his entire world; his mother, Barbara Cook of Jackson, Mich.; his father, Keith Cook of Texas; brothers Kevin Cook (Amanda) of Michigan, Mark Cook (Melissa) of Michigan, Kimberly Cook (Chrissy) of Calif.; as well as special nephews Chuck Barker (Lydia) of Calif. and Richard Barker (Sally) of Michigan. Brian is also survived by many uncles and aunts.

A Celebration of Life will be held on March 4th, 2017, at 12 :30 p.m. at Lake Seminole Baptist Church with Brother David Pace officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the service.

In lieu of flowers donations may be given to Ian’s College Fund.

Evans Skipper Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
