Robert A. “Bobby” Cook, Jr., 39, of Pittsfield passed away unexpectedly on February 15, 2021.
Born in Pittsfield on February 10, 1982, Bobby was the son of Elaine (Keeler) Cook and the late Robert A. Cook, Sr. He was educated in the public schools and attended Pittsfield High School. When he was younger, he spent much of his time working beside his father learning carpentry and woodworking.
Bobby had a passion for listening to and playing music. He even taught himself how to play the guitar and drums.
Bobby played basketball and baseball as a kid and his love for working out continued as he got older. Going to the gym and keeping himself in shape was very important to him.
Bobby was a kind soul that always tried to fix things for other people. He loved to be with his family and was also great with his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed getting together to play cards. His family sometimes joked that he was a big kid himself with all his “toys”, but Bobby loved taking things apart and learning how they worked.
In addition to his mother Elaine, Bobby is survived by his sisters, Melissa M. Cook and Kristina M. Cook, his brother, Scott M. Cook, his grandmother, Gloria Berne and great grandmother, Mary Rathbun. He also leaves his nieces and nephews, Chase A. Cook, Vanessa Tabor, Robert Michael Cook, Kaleigh and Sadie Lovato, and Brooklyn Cook, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. In addition to his father, Robert Sr., Bobby was predeceased by his grandmother, Rosemary Cook and his grandfather, Paul Keeler, Sr.
