He was born June 3, 1914. Roy was the youngest of eight children. His adventures began when his father, Joseph Willis Cook, and mother, Josephine Florence Cook, moved from Parsons, Kan., to the Uncompaghre Valley in Colorado to farm. There, Roy learned to farm the fertile valley, and he met his future life partner, Delila.
He worked the land, and then sought his fortune selling fruit and vegetables from the valley all around the Western Slope.
After winning the hand of his beloved, their adventures took them to Green River, where Roy worked for a short time with the railroad, then became a business owner of several businesses: sand and gravel, uranium mining, building roads and bridges, owning a gas station, and building and running two state tourist attractions, Crystal Geyser, and the more famous Roadside Geyser in Woodside.
Roy and Delila eventually left Utah to develop his knowledge of gas and oil well production across Kansas.
He held several patents, and was a man of many skills and talents. Roy loved to fish, hunt, and experience the outdoors. In later life, he immensely enjoyed sharing his stories of life experiences.
Roy and his Duchess were a dynamic team in business, as well as life.
He is survived by sister, Katie Mae Sumner of Colorado; daughter, Jennie Jo Crowder of Kansas; son, Stephen Willis Cook of Utah; grandchildren, Carey Morgan Crowder of Utah; Cassandra Sue Tucker of Kansas; Dr. Blaze Willis Cook of Colorado, Dr. Tyson Willis Cook of North Carolina, and Tristan Cook of Utah.
