Ron was a charter member of the Optimists. He started out with the Scout Band in the early years, and then went on to Opti-Corps and finally the Green.
He was the brother of Bob Cook who marched in the Colour Guard for several years. Ron began life in the "Green" as a cymbal player and then went on to play in the horn line. Always affable and with a great smile, he was a committed member of the Corps who could always be relied on no matter what the event or task.
