Dave graduated from Captain Shreve in 1981, went on to attend Louisiana Tech University, and graduated from LSU with a degree in accounting.  Dave was a die-hard LSU tigers fan.  He loved his family, had a flair for cuisine, enjoyed traveling (especially if it included an LSU football game), a thirst for knowledge, and a story for every event.  

He is preceded in death by his parents David and Gloria Cook, his paternal grandmother, Mary LeCompte Cook, and his maternal grandmother, Harriett Love Atanacio.  He is survived by his two sons, David James Cook V and wife Lisa, and Patrick Lee Cook; brother Michael Alexander Cook Sr., wife Patrice, nephew Michael Alexander Cook, Jr, wife Shyanna, great niece Natalie, nephew John Tyler Cook, and niece Elizabeth Paige Cook; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.  

Pallbearers will be family and Friends.

The family would also like to say a special thank you for the love and care provided by the doctors, nurses, and staff of Christus Highland Cancer Treatment Center.
