m-cookTHE WOODLANDS, TX: Matthew Alan Cook, 37, of The Woodlands, TX, went home to be with the Lord at North Cypress Medical Center on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

He was born in Columbus, OH, on May 4, 1977 to Dale Richard Cook and Linda Jo (Smith) Cook. He attended Marion Pleasant High School, graduating in 1995. Matt received three bachelor degrees in Marketing, Supply Chain, and Production Management from Bowling Green State University in 2000. He began his career in Marketing with Marathon Petroleum Company working in Indianapolis, IN. Matt relocated several times with Marathon including moves to Tampa, FL, Romulus, MI, Atlanta, GA, and Findlay, OH. In 2013, Matt began work for Newfield Exploration Company as the Marketing Manager.

In 2003, he met his wife, Stephanie Moore, and they were married in March, 2005. In October, 2009 he became a father to a beautiful baby girl, Macy Noel Cook. In 2010, the family relocated to Houston, TX. Matt welcomed his son, Grant Matthew Cook, in December 2011. Matt was a wonderful husband, devoted father, loving son, supportive brother and friend to many.

Matt had a strong passion for life. Whatever he pursued, he gave 110% – a true warrior. The word “quit” was not in his vocabulary. Anyone who knew him, knew he was competitive. Matt competed in several sports in high school, but football was his passion. The Ohio State University lost one of their #1 fans. He completed his first triathlon in 2009 and his first marathon in 2011. Matt was an avid runner and cyclist – competing three times in the MS150 in Houston and once in the MS150 in Alaska.

He was an extremely loyal friend and a true man of his word. Matt has always been a man of integrity, enthusiasm, commitment, family, and faith. His life has been dedicated to loving, encouraging, and motivating others to reach their

highest potential. Whether as a son, brother, friend, or father Matt always found the words to heal those in need and instill strong values in those around him.

He is survived by his parents, Dale and Linda Cook of Marion, OH; his brothers, Jon (Meghean Frazier) of Litchfield Park, and Michael of Chicago, IL.; his wife, Stephanie (Moore) of The Woodlands, TX; and children, Macy and Grant. Also his in-laws, Greg and Jennifer Moore of League City, TX; his brother in law, Stephen (Alison McKnight) of Louisville, KY; and many other extended family members in the central and northern Ohio area.

The less you have, the more precious what you have is…
