Donald Dwight Cook, age 71, of Wilmington, passed away on Monday, February 24, 2020, at his home.
He was born on May 20, 1948, the son of Howard Hughes Cook and Margaret May McCleney Cook.
Donald worked as a Supervisor at Dupont in the Fabric Manufacturing Division.

He is survived by his wife Mae; son Donald Cook II; step sons, Taylor and Shane (Liz) Higgins; grandchildren Maddie and Dillon Cook; sister Delores Long (Jimmy) and lots of nieces and nephews.

Donald loved to be up in the mountains or out in a stream trout fishing. He loved shag dancing and beach music and being with his friends wherever they were headed or whatever they were up to; but most of all the time he spent with his grandchildren was what he loved the best.
