I read the lugubrious news that Mr Cook died a few months ago. I had not know much about his background until I read the article. I shan’t rehash all that. It is best now to recall Mr Cook as I knew him.

I was aware of Mr Cook from my first half. This was chiefly because his house dined in the same area as us. I never once saw him irked in five years. Running a house is very trying indeed and he was never vexed. I do not know anyone who had a bad word to say about him. He was a masterly schoolmaster. This beak was well turned out, portly, affable, gracious, engaging and always popular. He was mirthful and happy to engage in badinage. Yet his pupils never overstepped the mark. He was actuated by a true hearted concern for the wellbeing of his boys. He never let his family life interfere with his pedagogical duties.

I remember his Geography lessons and indeed his Divinity lessons. Mr CJO Cook was composed and placid. We instantly stood up as he entered the room. He had an effortless authority about him. He commended universal respect and affection. What was it about him? I cannot put my figure on it. He was an ungainly figure with a generous middle aged spread and too many teeth crammed into his mouth.

His lessons were filled with his unusual enthusiasms. He taught us lots about south-west England. Moreover, he found Japan enthralling. He had been visiting Nippon since the 1970s. Back then flying to the far side of the globe was prohibitively expensive and very few Japanese spoke English. He was venturesome and had an inquiring mind.

This beak had a passion for word searches. He held an impromptu spelling bee which Drysdale one. His piece de resistance was escholschza. I am probably misspelling it. I recall his school hall assembly when he did the Times crossword in five minutes. One cryptic clue was ”a little lower” which was a calf. The man was blessed with a corkscrew mind.

Mr Cook was unflappable and ever approachable. I remember him entirely fondly. He has been called to the great big classroom in the sky. He had a zest for teaching. The gentleman had a very positive impact on my life. He is sorely missed.
