Kenneth Dale Cook of Portage, MI entered into eternity on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at the age of 90. Ken was born in Holland, MI on January 9, 1928, the son of the late Peter Cook and Anna Breen Cook. On August 31, 1957 Ken married his bride of 60 years, Janet Lee Smith. He proudly served his country in the United States Army during World War II and was employed by Dutch Boy Bakery (Holland, MI) and Schaefer Bakery (Kalamazoo, MI) for over 30 years. As a dedicated servant of the Lord, Ken devoted 37 years to serving as minister and district leader of the New Apostolic Church of Portage as well as many additional congregations. He found his greatest joys in serving the Lord and in spending time with his wife and family. He was an example of love and humbleness in all he did.
