Remembering Bob Cook

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Franklin “Bob” Cook, Sr. Bob founded Bob Cook Sales, a manufacturer’s rep agency, in June of 1979. As his company grew from just himself to a two-man and finally a full-fledged rep business, Cook began to give back by helping to foster the industry. When he wasn’t on the road, he devoted himself to SEMA projects. His résumé of services included three consecutive terms on the SEMA Board of Directors, as well as the chairmanships of the WD of the Year Committee, Rep Committee and Dues Review Committee. He also served on the Long Range Planning Committee, the New Products Judging Committee and the Person of the Year Committee. Under his leadership, Bob Cook Sales has been honored six times with the SEMA Rep of the Year award, and Cook has himself been inducted in the SEMA Hall of Fame.

Bob Cook retired in 2008 where he enjoyed working on his farm in Georgia. He is survived by his children: Robby Cook of Winterville, GA, Jeff Cook of Winterville, GA, and Lisa D’Hilly of Huntsville, AL; siblings: Shelma Chafin, Wallace Cook, and Shirley Bryant; two grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Mayo Clinic for Pulmonary Fibrosis. Bob Cook was a legend and a friend to many. His zest for life and love for the automotive industry will be greatly missed.
