Walter Harrison 'Butch' Cook, 71, of Livermore, Ky

OWENSBORO, Ky. - Walter Harrison 'Butch' Cook, 71, of Livermore, Ky passed away Thursday, October 31, 2013 at his home in the Nuckols Community of McLean County. Walter Harrison Cook was born October 30, 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee to the late Eugene Temple and Marva Louise Hudnall Cook, was married to the former Eva Ray Cabbage, and was also known as 'Butch' by both his family and friends. He was a farmer, retired after 25 years of service from Krogers of Owensboro, retired after 43 years of service from the U.S. Postal Service as a rural mail carrier, was a member of the Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church, and a member of the Green River Antique Machinery Association of McLean County. Butch had a great love and knowledge of tractors both old and new and loved every one of them. His favorite place to be was on his farm, watching his cattle and the changing seasons. Butch's family and friends will greatly miss his old Nuckols stories and corny jokes, which he laughed at every time.

In addition to his parents, Butch was preceded in death by a son, Walter Eugene Cook.

Survivors include his wife, Eva C. Cook; a daughter and her husband, Bobbi and David Isbell of Greenville; two step daughters, Angela Burden and Tina Nantz and husband, Scott both of Livermore; six grandchildren, Adam Ranburger, Lindsey Sexton, Emily Burden, Matthew Abney, Brenton Winters, and Mallory Nantz; and eleven great grandchildren, Brennan Abney, Hailee Abney, Serenity Abney, Gracie Abney, Noah Ranburger, Jack Gibson, John Gibson, Alexus Sexton, Hunter Sexton, Lauren Hoover, and Harley Thomas.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 A.M. Monday at Muster Funeral Homes, Livermore Chapel with the Rev. Tommy Webb officiating. Burial will be in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery in McLean County. Friends may visit with Butch's family from 2:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. Sunday and from 8:30 A.M. until time of services Monday at Musters in Livermore.

The Walter Harrison 'Butch' Cook family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to the Pleasant Hill Cemetery Fund; C/O Diana Hoover; 613 Raymond Curry Lane; Livermore, Ky 42352. Memorial contribution envelopes will be available at Musters in Livermore.

A quote from Butch, 'Be a tractor for the Lord. A tractor always does its best, even if it only hits on three of its four cylinders. It will do its best on the three that it is hitting on. Say your prayers because the old U.S.A. needs it. Love to all of you' - Butch.
