Community honors deputy who died of COVID-19 complications

Kent County

ROCKFORD, Mich. (WOOD) — A funeral procession honored a Kent County sheriff’s deputy who died this week of COVID-19 complications.

David Cook, a husband and father of two, died Monday. He had been a patrol deputy with the Kent County Sheriff’s Department for 21 years.

The Friday funeral for Cook was private, but those wishing to pay their respects could line up for a procession from Pederson Funeral Home in Rockford to City Church.

Cook was remembered by his colleagues at the sheriff’s department as a friend and devoted deputy who served with kindness.

The sheriff’s department noted its records division would be closed Friday in observance of the funeral.
