He retired from coaching in 1983 and moved to Temple with his wife, Joy, to enjoy extended family. Even in retirement, Eddie enjoyed reliving his past coaching experiences with former players and coaches.

Mr. Cook is preceded in death by his wife, Joy, and a son, Timothy.

Survivors include his sons, Kelly Cook of Frisco and Terry Cook (wife Lucinda) of Buda as well as four grandsons, Cameron, Landon, Kaiden, and Kinsley.

To the family: One of the things that I enjoy about my job(selling and installing window treatments) is that it gives me the opportunity of meeting "special people" from time to time in their homes. I had met two special people, that of meeting and getting to know not just your dad, but your mom also. Joy was a "joy" to Ed and he loved her so much. Ed and I got to visit more as I would see him from time to time in various stores. He would tell me about his adventures in coaching.

I was somewhat saddened when I read the obituary in the Temple paper this morning and did not have a chance to visit at the funeral home.

I know you will miss him, but I know he will always be in your hearts and minds forever. May God bless you all.
