Obituary

Lloyd Gary Cook Sr. was born to Sarah Cook on April 7, 1959 in Jackson, MS and was the fourth of nine children. He attended the Jackson Public School system and was a graduate of Central High School. He later attended Jackson State University. He soon after joined the job corps and studied the trade to become an electrician.

Lloyd was blessed with a large and loving family. He married his pride and joy Texcine on November 29, 1981 in Jackson, MS at the Holiday Inn. He ended up moving to Texas shortly after for a better opportunity for him and his wife and future children. They together had five children and instilled in each of them to be loving and kind. He was a family man tried and true and a loving father. He was always willing to offer and share advice even when unsolicited and his wealth of knowledge will be sorely missed. He was a man of faith and a true Child of God.

Lloyd is survived by his loving wife Texcine, his daughter Sharon and her husband Mario Lopez-Diaz, his daughter Panthera and her husband Jose Kessler; his daughter April and husband Aco Lopez, daughter Sylver, and daughter-in law Linda; His grandchildren Aaliyah, Amelia, Isabelle, and Angelo. He also leaves to cherish his memory his strong mother Sarah, his four brothers Dwayne, Leroy, and Leonard Cook, and Patrick Evans and two sisters Nancy Pate and Sharon Yarbrough. And we want to mention his long-term best friend Bob Benge and wife Joanne, niece Natasha (Hernandes) Simmons along with a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his only son Lloyd Jr., his stepdad Leroy Evans, his sister Rachel Cook Earley, brother Ricky Lavern Sumler, aunt Mamie Cook, uncle Leonard McDavid, and his maternal grandparents Leonard Cook Sr. and Nancy Evelyn Jones Cook.
