Oklahoma City: John Wayne Cook went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at his home at the age of 81.

John (Wayne) was born Tuesday, August 8, 1939 in Velma, Oklahoma to Stokely Greenberry and Lola Mae (Campbell) Cook. Wayne attended and graduated from Lawton High School in 1957.
On Aug 12, 1959, he married the love of his life, Laura LaVerne Fine, in Lawton. While living in Lawton, on March 4, 1960, Wayne and Laura were blessed with the birth of a beautiful daughter, Vickie Lynn. During their 61 years of marriage, Wayne and Laura had many good and happy times, but as life goes, they also endured some hard and sad times. One such sad time was the death of their daughter Vickie Lynn on December 7, 2015. In 1963, they later moved to Oklahoma City where they lived for the remainder of their married life.
Wayne worked in the aircraft repair business for over 30 years. He had many talents, but he was quite the artist and craftsman. He enjoyed etching glass and sculpting as well as making knives, birdhouses, and outdoor furniture.
Wayne was a long time member of the Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church of Oklahoma City, where he was baptized in September of 1963. He will be dearly missed by his brothers and sisters in Christ.
Survivors include his wife Laura of the home and a brother, David Cook of Duncan, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, 4 sisters, Martha Philpot, Nancy Locke, Geneva Nunley, and Virginia Tugman, and daughter, Vickie Lynn Berglund.

Funeral services will be held at the Callaway-Smith-Cobb Funeral Home in Marlow, Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at 2:00 PM with Elder Allen Daniels officiating. Burial will follow at the Marlow Cemetery. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Callaway-Smith-Cobb Funeral and Cremation Services of Marlow.

Wayne and I were friends for over 60 years have grown up together and attending various church meetings. After he and Laura were married, we spent many hours in each others homes. After I was ordained to the ministry in July 1980, Wayne and Laura attended numerous church services where I was preaching, which made us even closer friends to share our fellowship in the love in Christ.

My wife and I send my love and deepest sympathy to his dear wife, Laura and other family members. We pray that the Holy Spirit and the love of Christ Jesus will comfort them in this time of sadness.

Love and prayers,
Allen & Judy Daniels
