Life Story for Lloyd Cook
Lloyd Henry Cook was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, mosom, chapan, role model, and a hardworking family man who had many resourceful qualities. Lloyd never gave up in any situation and always did what he could for his family, his children and especially his grandchildren. In the community Lloyd was well-known and well respected. He enjoyed attending community events as he loved showing his grandchildren around as well as visiting his own friends. Lloyd left Onion Lake at the age of 16 for western Alberta, and worked on the CN railway from Nordegg to Rocky Mountain House for about 10 years. After returning to Onion Lake and the birth of his first children Lloyd started working for Onion Lake Housing. He was a self-taught carpenter and for over 20 years he built many homes all over the reserve. Although these were his main sources of income, Lloyd was very experienced in all kinds of work, you could say he was a jack of all trades. From fixing vehicles and small equipment to making anything for his grandchildren he always kept himself busy. He loved to work, he loved to travel but most of all he loved his wife, Bertha. They were together for 53 years and married in 2008.
