Richard G. Cook

Mr. Cook

Mr. Richard G. Cook, 87, of Gloversville, passed to his eternal peace on Thursday, February 8, 2018.

He was born on January 22, 1931. He proudly served in the Air Force . On leave he met Anna Savarese and they entered into a 61 year union on August 19, 1956.

He is survived by his wife, Anna (Savarese) Cook; daughters, Theresa Cook (Samuel Trance), Belinda Cook Steding (Jon Bronk); grandchildren, Ian Steding (Cristin) and Danielle Steding; sister-in-law, Matilda (Butch) Generoso; and several nieces and nephews.

His life led him down many roads and he had a special gift to gather knowledge, friendships and keen wit along those journeys. He will be remembered for his quick wit, his playful art and one liners. As we raise a beaker, play a wine glass, sing a song and hear him say goodbye with an SS!

We love you beyond words.

Services will be held on Monday, February 12, 2018, at Amico Funeral Home, 150 South Main, Gloversville, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., where a prayer service will be held at 10:30 a.m., followed by a 11 a.m. Mass of Christian burial at Church of the Holy Spirit.
