Steven L. Cook

April 13, 1960 - January 9, 2019     Age: 58

Steven Larry Cook, 58, of Fernandina Beach passed away Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at the Warner Center for Caring.

Born in Savannah, Georgia, he came “home” to Fernandina Beach shortly after his birth and would spend the rest of his life here.

He attended Fernandina Beach schools and Nassau Christian Academy. As a young man, he worked at White Oak Plantation and for the City of Fernandina Beach.  For much of his later life he worked for himself as a painter until his health prevented him working any more.

As a youth, he attended First Baptist Church. He also attended Living Waters Outreach Center. Steven was a gentle soul who loved his family.  A hospice chaplain said of him, “Steven was able to become an instant friend to anyone because of his kind heart.”

He was predeceased by a brother, Linton Lester Cook in 1991 and his step-father, Franklin Holloway in 1994.

He leaves behind his mother, Kathleen Holloway; his siblings, Gail Wood, Rita (Bruce) Hansen, Kathryn Rushing, Donna Holloway, Frank (Paula) Holloway, Jr. and Cheryl (Allan) Baxter; a very dear friend, Rhonda Dubberly and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends at Oxley – Heard Funeral Directors Sunday, January 13, 2019 from 3:00 until 5:00 PM.

Funeral services will be held Monday, January 14, 2019 beginning at 11:00 AM at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church with the Reverend Stephen Mazingo, Rector, and Pastor Jeff Strickland officiating.

He will be laid to rest at Bosque Bello Cemetery.

 In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Steven’s name to Cat’s Angels, 709 South 8th Street, Fernandina Beach, FL  32034
