Funeral services were held Saturday at Mount Pleasant Church, conducted by Rev Frank Lyon, pastor of Dillon Baptist Church, and in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends, the body was laid to rest in the church cemetery.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs Martha Cook, and eight children; Liston Cook, Miss Ella Cook, Mrs Manda Miles, Mrs Daisy McLellan, Mrs Sallie Jackson, Mrs Bessie Blackman, all of Dillon County, Phillip Cook, Jr and Mrs Sara Carlis (should be Carter) of Latta.

Active pallbearers were Frank Richardson, Frank Thompson, Joe Caulder, Claud Taylor, Arthur Caulder, and J H Jackson. Honorary pallbearers were chosen from among his friends and included Dr J R Rogers, A M Rogers, Senator J D Manning, T B Herring, Jim Hartley, George Barnes, Sam McLaurin and Earl Alford.
