Dedicated to the Preservation of the
U.S. Air Force Helicopter History
Christopher Keith Cook, USAF
January 4, 1972 – September 28, 2021
Christopher Keith Cook was born January 4, 1972 in Eugene, OR to Jack and Linda Cook.
He moved to Iowa, LA in first grade. He loved it there hunting and fishing with his friends, and being around more of his family. His father got a job and was transferred to Tulsa. He didn’t know many people there and that is when he discovered his love for music. He taught himself to play guitar, and his love grew from there.
He went into the United States Air Force and trained as a helicopter mechanic. He was stationed in Florida with his wife Constance Cook and was a helicopter crew chief in special ops. He spent most of the years overseas. They had two boys Corbin Keith Cook and Camden Cook while he was serving his county. He was reluctantly medically discharged after 8 years. This is where his health battles began.
He remarried Molly Corrina Cook and had two step children Sydney Rae Little and Brett Anthony Little. Then had his third son Aidan Louis Cook.
He worked as a civilian aircraft mechanic at Tinker Air Force Base. He was there until he was forced into medical retirement. His love for music consumed his time after. He was in an acoustic duet named Sweetwater Kings which was his passion. He played weekly with his best friend and it was the highlight of his life.
His health deteriorated over the last several years, but he was caught off guard suddenly by a diagnosis with lymphoma. He lived the last several years of his life in Tecumseh, OK being well taken care of by his partner Larry Irby.
He was preceded in death by his son Camden Cook. He is survived by his parents Jack and Linda Cook of Broken Arrow, a sister Julie and her husband of Broken Arrow, and his nieces Kenzie and Jessie, his wife Molly Cook of Tecumseh, son Corbin Cook of Yukon, son Aidan Cook of Tecumseh, step children Sydney Little of Ponca City and Brett Little of Midwest City, partner Larry Irby of Tecumseh, and hundreds of friends.
He will be greatly missed by all.https://www.mcneilsfuneral.com/obituaries/Christopher-Keith-Cook?obId=22564295#/celebrationWall
