Timothy Osmond Cook

FARMINGTON – On Jan. 14, 2022, the world lost Timmy Cook, 58.

He was born on June 6, 1963, in Lewiston, during a Red Sox game to Osmond and Esther (Greenlief) Cook. The Sox lost, but the Cook family won by completing their family with Tim.

He was a gifted athlete while attending Monmouth Academy, graduating in 1981. He then attended CMVTI, graduating in 1983 with an associate degree in machine tool technologies.

Tim was a skilled machinist who worked with computer boards, ski lifts, wind turbines, and could help anyone figure out how to fix most things with moving parts. He was a dedicated worker and took pride in everything he did, he worked hard and played harder.

A salt of the Earth man who found joy in the simple things in life. He loved to brag about his kids, always appreciated a good meal and had a fondness for travel and different cultures. Timmy did not keep his wealth in money, but in experiences. He could be found on the Kennebec River white water rafting, skiing at Sugarloaf and spending time with friends who became family.

Timmy had a unique adoration for music, he always had music playing or a guitar in his hand and loved to sing along. He was moved by music, there were always songs to fill the air. He had the gift of friendship; he was loyal, witty, charismatic, entertaining, and eager to lend a hand to help anyone.

Tim is survived by his dog, Dub; his son, Alexander Cook of Monmouth, his daughter, Abigail Pyenta and her husband Matthew of Monmouth; as well as his three cunning grandchildren, George, Peter, and Madeline Pyenta; siblings Katherine (Richard) Gray, Julie (Brett) Hardacker, Stephen (LeeAnn) Cook and Donna Carr; many nieces and nephews; and an incredible group of friends.

Tim is predeceased by his parents Osmond and Esther; and four half-siblings, Sonny Cook, Barbara Thibeault, Ron Cook, and Judith Kenney.
