COOKE, John Stuart
(November 5th, 1927-March 9th, 2008)
At Credit Valley Hospital, on a Sunday morning, John died peacefully, surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of Virginia (Ginny) and beloved father and father-in-law of Nancy and Tony VETTESE, Kelly and Andrew FALLS and sadly predeceased in 1978 by his son John Gary. Grandpa will be missed by his adored grandchildren Rebecca and Stephen, Gregory and Scott. He was the dear brother and brotherin-law of Dorothy WOODHOUSE and the late Bud, Doctor William J. COOKE, Norma WHITTEKER and the late Don, and the late Helen and Ron WILKINSON. 'Uncle Jack' also leaves many wonderful memories with nieces and nephews from both sides of the family. John's career began with the Northern Miner in 1956. He had been Vice-President and Assistant General Manager of Northern Miner Press Ltd when he was appointed Publisher of The Northern Miner in 1989. After 42 years with The Miner, John retired as Publisher and in true mining fashion never really retired but remained as a consultant keeping his lifelong ties with the Mining community. The Miner and staff, past and present, have been one of the great interests and joys of his life as has his affiliation and contributions towards the success of The Canadian Mining Hall of Fame. He has received recognition by his peers over the years from the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and most recently an award from the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He was an active Past President of the Engineer's Club, now the Ontario Club and a man who was both respected and loved in the mining circle. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at the Credit Valley Hospital for their care and support. The family will receive Friends from 2: 00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday March 16th, 2008 at the Ward Funeral Home, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville (905) 844-3221. A celebration of John's life will take place on Wednesday March 19th, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. at Maple Grove United Church, 346 Maple Grove Drive, Oakville L6J 4V5. A reception will follow. Cremation and a private family service at Mount Pleasant Cemetery will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Credit Valley Hospital Foundation, The ALS Society, or Maple Grove United Church Renovation Fund.
