A son of the late Donald Robert and Mary Jane (Kelley) Cookson, Tommy was born January 17, 1950 at Coulee Dam, Washington.

Tommy was an outdoorsman who especially enjoyed hunting and fishing. He continued to fish in his favorite spot in the Tuscarawas River until this past March when his health no longer permitted him to do so.

In keeping with Tommy’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or services and cremation will take place through the care of the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia.

Contributions may be made in Tommy’s memory to Community Hospice of Tuscarawas County, 716 Commercial Avenue SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

Beth and family...I am sorry for your loss. I didn't know Tommy a long time, but know he was a good, caring man. I always enjoyed talking with him and enjoyed the meals he prepared on his smoker. Take care!

Beth and Family, My condolences on the loss of Tommy. I only met you once, Beth, but as a cousin, I knew Tommy when he was just a kid. I have fond memories of the times that the Cookson family got together and the cousins would all have grand time. It was a long time ago but the memories are there. My prayers to you.
