1925-2012

Alton Burrous Cook, 87, of San Antonio, Texas, died Saturday, June 2, 2012. Alton was born April 1, 1925, in the School Land community of Gonzales County to Cleburne D. “CD” and Ethel Tom Cook.

He graduated from Nixon High School in 1942 and married Nettie Mahan the same year. He volunteered for military service in 1943, serving in the U.S. Army during World War II both in England and Europe. Alton began his working career in the retail poultry business in San Antonio, later working at the Purina Feed Store (CD Cook Co.) in Nixon. This led to his employment with the Gonzales Production Credit Association (PCA) and the Federal Intermediate Credit Bank of Houston. Later, he served as president of the same bank in Wichita, Kan., and Louisville, Ky., ending his career in Denver Colo., as president of the newly formed Farm Credit Union. Alton was an active member of the Nixon Masonic Lodge, Scottish Rite in San Antonio, and the Northside Rotary Club. He took great pride in being a Shriner and driving children to the Shriners Burn Hospital in the Houston-Galveston area. He was a longtime active member and elder of the San Pedro Presbyterian Church.

Alton is survived by his wife of 69 years, Nettie Cook of San Antonio; his daughters, Lydia Machac and husband Doug of Houston and Kay Cook Perez and husband David of Universal City; his sister, Myrtle Colwell of Nixon; his grandchildren, Lori Hockley, Chris Perez, Stephanie King, Melanie Young, and Meredith Kalbus; six great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. Many friends and family will miss this “Tall Texan” and good man, said his family.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, June 6, from 1-2 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in Nixon.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the funeral home chapel with the Rev. Calvin Reynolds officiating.

Interment will follow in the Nixon Cemetery in Nixon.

There will be a memorial service Thursday, June 7, at 11 a.m. in the San Pedro Presbyterian Church in San Antonio.
