Oklahoma City: John Wayne Cook went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at his home at the age of 81.
John (Wayne) was born Tuesday, August 8, 1939 in Velma, Oklahoma to Stokely Greenberry and Lola Mae (Campbell) Cook. Wayne attended and graduated from Lawton High School in 1957.
On Aug 12, 1959, he married the love of his life, Laura LaVerne Fine, in Lawton. While living in Lawton, on March 4, 1960, Wayne and Laura were blessed with the birth of a beautiful daughter, Vickie Lynn. During their 61 years of marriage, Wayne and Laura had many good and happy times, but as life goes, they also endured some hard and sad times. One such sad time was the death of their daughter Vickie Lynn on December 7, 2015. In 1963, they later moved to Oklahoma City where they lived for the remainder of their married life.
Wayne worked in the aircraft repair business for over 30 years. He had many talents, but he was quite the artist and craftsman. He enjoyed etching glass and sculpting as well as making knives, birdhouses, and outdoor furniture.
Wayne was a long time member of the Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church of Oklahoma City, where he was baptized in September of 1963. He will be dearly missed by his brothers and sisters in Christ.
Survivors include his wife Laura of the home and a brother, David Cook of Duncan, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
