Moffat County Fair Board dedicates 2015 fair to the Cook family
Pat, Larry, Scott and Kristie Cook moved to Craig from Denver in April 1963. Larry was working for General Motors in the insurance department.
He came to Craig to become sales manager for Reid Chevrolet located in an old gas station where Bank of Colorado is now located. Larry bought stock and became a partner in Reid Chevrolet in 1965. That year, they built their new building on Fourth Street. Pat taught school in Craig for 16 years!
In 1971, Larry bought out Reid Chevrolet and turned it into Cook Chevrolet. He built the present building on West Victory Way in 1978.
Larry’s son, Scott, graduated from Moffat County High School in 1975. He then attended Colorado State University in 1979, graduating with a business major. He is married to Kelly, has a stepdaughter, Britney, who graduated from Moffat County High School in 2000 and graduated from CSU in 2004 with a bachelor’s of science in psychology. She lives in Castle Rock with her husband, Nick, and they have two beautiful kids, Tripp and Caroline.
Scott worked with his father throughout his time in junior high and high school. He worked his way up through Cook Chevrolet as sales manager, general manager, and now he’s president and owner. Scott prided himself on building the Cook Chevrolet Subaru in Steamboat in 2005. In 2014, he bought the Ford dealership in Craig, which is now called Cook Ford.
Kristie Cook graduated from Moffat County High School in 1978. She also attended CSU where she received her master’s degree in marriage and individual therapy. She is married to Dr. Michael Kleban and lives in Mesa, Arizona. They have a daughter, Dr. Shawna Kleban, in plastic surgery residency, and a son, Ryan, a student at Colorado University.
The Cooks have been in Craig over 52 years and have purchased 4-H animals every year in Moffat and Routt County! They have also continued to support the Moffat County Fair through sponsorship and award donations for many, many years.
It is with extreme pleasure and gratitude we, the Moffat County Fair Board, dedicate the 2015 Moffat County Fair to you. Thank you for your dedication and support!
