Leland James Cook

October 11, 2019

Leland J. Cook, 66, of Tunkhannock died October 11, 2019. 

Born in Wilkes-Bare on January 18, 1953 he was preceded in death by his father Donald L. Cook and survived by his mother Leona Traver Cook.

He was a hardworking man, working for American Asphalt for over 40 years until finally retiring. He still worked part time for Gays True Value to keep himself busy and he loved it. He also loved the outdoors especially hunting. He was always chasing that buck. Above all he cherished spending time with his children and granddaughter. He will surely be missed.
