For nearly 33 years, Roy Cook has been the go-to guy to fix a city vehicle or climb around the ceiling of Rockwood City Hall laying wire for a sound system.
He even made Christmas ornaments at the city hall.
“They kept sending paychecks every two weeks,” Cook quipped. “And I enjoyed the work.”
Cook was head mechanic before he recently retired.
City officials say they’ll miss him.
“Roy’s loss is going to be a tremendous loss to the city of Rockwood,” Mayor James Watts said.
