Michael L. Cook, 70, of Genoa, Colorado passed away, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, in the presence of his children at his son’s home.
Michael was born Oct. 21, 1948, to Lyle and Eileen Cook. He was raised and attended school in St. Francis, Kansas. He graduated high school in 1966. He was an avid and skilled wrestler and fighter in his youth and throughout his life.

Mike also had a precious daughter from a previous relationship. He loved the oilfield and dedicated his life to it.

His family would like to express their sincere gratitude to his loyal and devoted friend of fifty years, Don Bodell, who helped him and walked beside him through his illness. We would also like to thank CCH Radiology Department, Heptner Cancer Center, and the Hospice Staff. You were all very accommodating and caring.
