Tryon– Chester Raymond “Chet” Cook, 78, went to sleep in Jesus at home on October 22 after battling cancer. 

He was full of faith when he passed and looking forward to the first resurrection.  Born in Orange, CA, he was the fifth child of six of the late Elmer (father) & surviving mother, Marilyn Cook. 
He was the husband of Beverly Cook and father of Robert Lee Cook (Teri), Christopher David Cook (Mia), and Jennifer Renee Cook Osting (Tom).  He is survived by five grandchildren: Reggienette and Alexander Cook, Caleb Fosdick, Jacob Fosdick, and Nolan Osting.  He has a surviving sister, Frances Wordal. 
Chet’s love was in serving others and being active in the Tryon Seventh-day Adventist Church where he held various positions and was well known as a good pianist and vocalist.  His most recent service was as Assistant Manager of the Adventist Thrift Store on the church campus.  He was kind, organized, methodical, and conscientious.  He had many talents and loved by all. 
A memorial service for Chet will be held 2:00 PM. Saturday, November 13, 2021 at the Tryon Seventh-day Adventist Church. 
All are welcome.   
Condolences to the family can be made to
