Mr. Cook actually taught me Trigonometry, a task I thought was impossible. He was a very good teacher and beneath the gruff exterior, really cared about his students.

So sorry to hear that Joe Cook has passed away. He was my math teacher and somehow made the subject interesting to me. May his memory be a blessing. Leslie Berger, class of 1977

So sorry to see that Mr. Cook passed away. He was my homeroom teacher as well as my math teacher at Sharon High back in the early 80s. He was a great guy and his passion for golf was well-known. If we weren't in the mood to study math in class, all we had to do was mention golf and Mr. Cook was off and running. May he Rest In Peace. My deepest condolences to his family.

I was saddened to learn of Joe's passing. He and I spent many days playing golf, with Murray, Cookie, enjoying each other's company. He was a gentle person whom I will always remember.

Jason and Family,

I was sorry to hear of Joe's passing the other day. I always enjoyed my time with your Dad and seeing him at the events and in Florida.

All the best to you and the family.

Joe and I played on the same intramural basketball team while he attended Northeastern. Later he would join the faculty at Sharon High School where I was teaching. We called him "gunner" because he never saw a shot he didn't like for himself. He enjoyed the game of life always giving it his best shot.

Joe was very proud of his teaching career. Golf was his first love but teaching was a close second
