Kevin Lawrence Cook, the son of Lorn and Darlene (Roemeling) Cook, was born March 1, 1957 in Worthington, MN.  He attended grade school in Spencer and his high school years in Adrian, MN, graduating from Adrian High School in 1975.

     While living in Adrian, Kevin helped Virgil and Alice Cook farm and milk cows.  He also worked for Steve and Lane Bullerman on the farm.  Kevin later went to work for Van Wyk Trucking in Sheldon as an over the road truck driver.  His love for the farm brought him back to work for his current employer, Tim Erpelding.  His love of farming was evident every day on the farm.

     Kevin was diagnosed with Leukemia on August 28, 2020.  He passed away peacefully at Unity Point Hospital in Sioux City after his courageous battle with leukemia.  He was preceded in death by his parents: Lorn & Darlene Cook; his special uncle, Virgil Cook and other aunts and uncles along with his maternal & paternal grandparents.
