Bobby was a very outgoing man who loved to go out just to talk to people. For as long as his health would allow, he would be “moving around”, which came from his love to travel. Bobby also had a passion for Bojangles Chicken where he ate many a breakfast.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Lois Faulkner Cook, his brother, Billy Joe Cook, sister-in-law, Brenda Cook and a sister, Joyce Creedmore.
Left to cherish his memory is his daughter, Beth Vaughan (Steve) and grandson, Justin Vaughan, all of Fort Mill, SC and one brother, Donnie Cook (Glenda) of Statesville. He is also survived by a brother-in-law, Donald Creedmore of Statesville and a number of nieces and nephews.
