CARBONVILLE-Andrew Melvin Cook, age 82, passed peacefully Dec. 21, 2009 at home after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born on May 2, 1927 in Castle Gate to Lorenzo and Alta Checketts Cook.

Andrew proudly served his country from 1944-1946 in the Merchant Marines and later in the Army/Air Force from 1946-1949. After returning from the service, he went to work for Libra Scope in California where he retired as an industrial artist with 32 years of service.

His retirement years were filled with fishing, gardening, remodeling and following his lifelong dream of painting outdoor scenes. Andrew was an accomplished artist and everyone cherished his beautiful artwork.
