Surrounded by his family, Robert W Cook Jr. (Bob) passed away peacefully at Life Care Center of Plymouth on December 5th, 2023, at the age of 82.

Robert was born in Weymouth, MA on August 6th, 1941, the oldest child of seven, to Robert and Frances Cook. In 1959, Robert joined the United States Marine Corps where he would achieve the rank of Corporal until his honorable discharge in 1963.

Robert and Lois moved into their home in Kingston, MA in 1969 where they would raise their three children (Marianne Benevides (Cook), Robert Leo Cook and Suzanne (Suzy) Demartini (Cook). They remained residents of Kingston for the next 42 years before moving to Plymouth, MA in 2010. They would be blessed with 8 wonderful grandchildren (Aaron, Hayley, Jessica, Ashlynn, Samantha, Skylar, Jake, and Sydney) who would be the light of their grandpa’s life right up until his passing.

Robert was a member of St.Joseph's Catholic Church in Kingston and Saint Kateri Church in Plymouth and was an active member of the Knights of Columbus #4480. Robert was always very active in his community and served in many capacities for both Kingston Youth Hockey and Kingston Youth Soccer organizations.
