GAINSVILLE, Fla. — Frederick Lee Cook, 67, Marion, passed away March 23, 2011 in Gainesville, FL. He was born September 11, 1943 in Darlington, Indiana.



He was the son of the late Harold F. and the late Ruby K. (Basham) Cook.



Life for Fred was like participating in a ballgame; "he would rather be playing than sitting on the bench." He graduated from Carmel High School in 1961 where he lettered in football, basketball, baseball, and track receiving the Mental Attitude Award two consecutive years. He went on to Butler University where he also lettered in football. He married his high school sweetheart, Judy, in 1965. He actively served in the Army Reserves during the Vietnam era. He had a long career in sales and until retirement was an engineer/VP with Elastizell Systems in Dayton, Ohio. He was a member of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, Kappa Sigma Fraternity, various professional organizations, and volunteered at Give Kids the World in Kissimmee, FL during the winter months. In his spare time he enjoyed golf, bowling, and basketball until health problems prevented participation. More recently he enjoyed quiet activities; in particular, watching the Colts games.



Survivors include his wife, Judith (Park) Cook; children, Courtney Cook Parras (Diego) of Kissimmee, Fla., Corbin Frederick Cook of Carmel, Ind., and sister-in-law, Nena (Park) Ray of Indianapolis and various nieces and a nephew.



He also was preceded in death by a brother, Carl R. Cook.
