Jimmy Cook

Jimmy Cook
- a construction industry veteran
and friend to all

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of one of the Lighthouse Club's oldest and most loyal supporters. Mr Jimmy Cook passed away last week (Tuesday 8th October 2013), at the great old age of 93.

A Lighthouse Club Member for nigh on 50 years, Jimmy was one of the finest ambassadors they have ever had. His dedication to the charity never faltered, having served as Chairman of the Midlands Branch back in the 1960s right up to his more recent role as Welfare Officer, which he fulfilled until very recently when ill health forced him to slow down.

His passion and enthusiasm was second to none and he truly lived up to the Lighthouse Club motto ‘Consideration for Others’. In fact on his 90th Birthday he asked family and friends for donations to the charity and for his beloved RAF Benevolent Fund in lieu of presents.

As a veteran RAF Pilot who served his country faithfully in World War II, Jimmy could always be relied on for an interesting tale to tell; he actually served at a RAF airfield just two miles from where the Lincolnshire Branch hold their meetings.

He used his Lighthouse Club Membership as a way to stay connected to the industry he loved; remaining self-employed as a PR Consultant.

He will be sorely missed; his lovely personality made him a popular figure with everyone who knew him.

But knowing Jimmy he would want us to celebrate his life which is why we ask everyone to raise a glass in his honour and in doing so spare a thought for his two daughters at this sad time.

To Jimmy, a great man, a wonderful friend
and one of our industry’s finest!
