Dr. Cook's robotics class was one of my favorites in graduate school. Later, I had the distinct pleasure of serving as an associate dean with him at VUSE. I appreciated his sage advice and calm demeanor. I am so sorry to hear of his death.

So sorry to hear that George had died, and my heart goes out to dearest Mary and the entire family. George was such a good man, and he always had a sweet smile. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for God to bring the family peace during this difficult time.
Love you💕
