Lynn R. Cook, passed away March 21, in Colorado Springs, Colo.
If a man’s life can be measured in units of joy, Lynn Cook’s name would surely be on the leader board. Born in Rockwood on Jan. 28, 1947, Lynn attended Crossville High School and graduated from MTSU with a double major in biology and partying. Lynn had a long and varied career in Health Care Administration starting in 1974 with the Department of Health for the State of Tennessee. He worked as a physician recruiter, hospital developer, and a group practice manager throughout his career. Lynn’s life and career took him from Tennessee to Kentucky, Texas and finally Colorado where he retired in 2009.
Lynn is survived by: wife, Liz Cook of Colorado Springs, Colo.; daughter Jordan Cook of London, England; grandchildren, Finn and Hayden Campbell of London, England; siblings, JC Cook of Crossville, Donna Yates of Crossville and Ann McCulloch of Mt. Juliet.
