It is with great sadness that the family of John David Cook (David) announce his passing on Tuesday, February 22, 2021. David was born August 18, 1943 in Winnipeg, MB to parents Elizabeth Marian Cook and John William Cook. His family later moved to Ottawa, ON where he attended Rideau High School. David was a dedicated family man, athlete and an avid member of the Alta Vista Duplicate Bridge Club. Known to many as “Uncle David”, he will be remembered for his selflessness, generosity and sense of humour. David will be dearly missed by the many hearts he warmed with his unconditional love and kindness, including many nieces, nephews, sisters and friends. Memorial donations may be made to the Ottawa Humane Society in honour of David’s lifelong love and care for animals.
