Larry  Cook Sr.
Larry Lee Cook, Sr., age 80, of Strafford, Missouri passed away on Monday morning, May 28, 2018 at Cox South Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri.

He was proceeded in death by his mother, Moseline Ashworth Mikesell.

Larry is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Cook; his son, Daniel Cook and his wife Nicole Cook; his daughter, Shanna Smith; his grandchildren, Haley Lurten, Charlie Smith, and Tyler Swickheimer.
