Alwin “Buster” Cook December 11, 1951- October 7, 2022
Heaven has gained another angel. Alwin “Buster” Cook, 70, died Oct. 7, 2022, from a heart attack. Buster was born Dec. 11, 1951, in Sidney, Mont., to Melissa (Sipe) Brodhead and Price Cook. He grew up on a farm outside of Grassy Butte, N.D., with his older siblings, Roger, Gene, Frances and Marie. Buster married the love of his life, Phyllis, on Sept. 28, 1975. Together they have three children: Dixie, Trenady and Anena. Buster and Phyllis had just celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary. The family moved around due to Buster being a mechanic and working in the oil fields. The family lived in several different states (Montana, North Dakota, Washington, Arizona, Nevada). He finally settled in Hadley, Nev., in 1995. Buster and Phyllis lived there for 27 years. He loved being in Hadley; he could take his quad and ride for hours. He could go camping within minutes of his home. Buster was a Master Mechanic; he could fix anything and rebuild an engine without any books or help from anyone. For those who knew him, knew he could go on for hours about what cars he built and what engines were in them. He could tell stories like no other. He loved to joke with his wife, kids and grandkids.He always thought outside the box and would be able to come up with ideas to make camping or anything he did enjoyable. He is preceded in death by both parents, his brothers Roger and Gene. He is survived by his wife, Phyllis; siblings, Frances (Ken) Groff of Green Valley, Ariz., Marie Cook of Round Mountain, Nev.; his children, Dixie Cook (Scott), Trenady (Danielle) Cook, Anena (Steve) McKellip; his grandchildren, Ty Cook, Adriana (Jeff) Buchanan, Stephany McKellip (Ryan), Trent McKellip, Cristofer James. Buster will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
