Randall A. Cook

Randall A. Cook, 63, formerly of Washington, IL passed away Monday, May 23, 2011 at home in LaFollette, TN.

Randy was born July 17, 1947 in Pekin to Richard and Eleanor (Mitchell) Cook. He married Connie S. Carter on December 28, 1975 in Washington. She survives along with his sons, Todd M. Cook of East Peoria and Ryan N. Cook of Frisco, Colorado and his daughter, Jennifer L. Cook of Portland, Oregon. He is also survived by his sister, Janet Kaiser of Peoria and several nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Randy worked in the Peoria area before retiring from PJS Publications as art director after 23 years of service.

Randy was an incredible musician, artist, and gun aficionado. He grew up in a musical family. In his early teens, he began playing rhythm guitar with his parents and grandfather in a square dance band. Later he joined The Originals, playing Rock ‘n’ Roll hits of the time. He continued to advance his musical style and performed with several bands in the local area including Bill Hardesty’s band, the Don Nelson Trio, and was front man for Flushwater Creek and finally Flashback. Randy was not only an outstanding guitarist, he was equally at home on the keyboard, bass and behind the drums. Randy enjoyed writing and recording original music, playing all the instruments on his recordings.

Randy never met a stranger. He enjoyed life, family and friends to the fullest. He was a humble gentleman and genuine conversationalist, easily engaging new and old friends alike. He was an amazing husband and father who loved to travel but was most at home sitting on the front porch strumming his six string.

The family will receive friends from 3 to 5 P.M. Saturday at Walters Funeral Home. Online condolences for Mr. Cook may be made at www.waltersfuneralhome.net. Walters Funeral Home of LaFollette is honored to be serving the family of Mr. Randall A. Cook
