Terry Douglas Cook, 70, of West Columbia, SC passed away Monday, December 7, 2020 at his home. He was a native of Englewood, TN and was a son of the late Warren "Shorty" and Geneva Burger Cook. He was preceded in death by his sister Dixie Cook and brother Pap Cook.
Terry served 20 years of active duty which included two overseas service assignments in Germany and Italy in the U.S. Army. After retiring from active duty he then served another 20 years for the Department of the Army Civilian Service at Moncrief Army Hospital, Ft. Jackson, SC.
Terry loved his family more than anything, his country, and his U.T. Volunteers. He had a heart of gold and will be missed dearly by all who loved and knew him.
Those left to cherish his memory are his daughters and sons-in-law, Denise and Dan Story and Missy and Jason Frye. His very loved grandchildren, Brittney Stone, Jacob and Daniel Story, and honorary grandson, Randy Elders; his siblings, Henry (Billie) Cook, Mike (Anne) Cook; several nieces and nephews; his former wife, Lillian Ann Cook; and many family and friends.
A funeral service will be conducted, 2:00 pm, Saturday, December 12, 2020 at Smith Funeral Home with Rev. Scott Cardin officiating. Interment will follow in Sunrise Cemetery with full military honors provided by the U.S. Army. The family will receive friends from 11:30am-1:30 pm Saturday, at the funeral home prior to the service.
