Frank Boyd Cook, 61, entered into his eternal rest after a courageous battle with cancer. Frank left us Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, with family by his side.
He was born Oct. 31, 1955, to Lawrence Boyd and Shirley Ann Cook in Lewiston, along with his two older siblings, and 10 years later came his youngest sibling.
Frank attended school in Lewiston and graduated from Lewiston Senior High School in 1974. He enjoyed building and driving stock cars at the Lewiston Speedway.
Frank met the love of his life, Deborah Marie Scheik, in 1972. They later married in 1980. They had their first child, Christopher Boyd Cook, in December of 1980. Frank attended the police academy in Post Falls, Idaho, and enjoyed many years working in law enforcement, ranging from Culdesac to city of Asotin and Asotin County. Frank then welcomed his youngest child, Ashlynn Rae Cook, in January 1986.
He enjoyed working with his family at the family logging business, including Joe Cook and Sons Logging. Frank also had many years of working at and managing Courtesy Rent to Own. Frank became a proud business owner of Twin Rivers Security in January of 2017. This was his dream for many years to again work with his family and start his own adventure. Frank enjoyed attending his men’s group, fishing, hunting, camping, trail riding with his family, attending church and spending time with his five grandkids.
Frank is survived by his wife, Deborah; son Chris (Lisa); daughter Ashlynn (Joe); grandchildren Gabe, Kenzie, Caleb, Bailey and Madi; brother Mike (Suzanne); and sisters Diane (Ron) and Carey (Jay). Frank left behind many loved ones, including his sisters-in-law, Melanie, Dorothy (Marvin), Milissa and Jennifer (Mike), along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
In lieu of a memorial service, the family will be holding a celebration of life for Frank. The celebration will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at the House of Faith in Lewiston. There will be a covered-dish dinner following the service. The family would like to invite everyone who knew Frank to come and share memories at this celebration.
