Terry Clifton “Gus” Cook, age 62 of Goshen, passed away April 21, 2018. He was born April 28, 1955 in Nephi, Utah to Vivian Doyle and Marjorie Jean Peterson Cook.
Terry has always been a driven, hard-working man. In his early years he started off by hauling hay and sheering sheep. He then went on to become a city cop and Mr. Fix It city worker. He could do it all.
In 1985 he found and married the love of his life, Tammy Hansen. He always said , “She sure swept me off my feet”.
He went on pursuing his passion for cars. He opened TNT Auto Body and ran his business for 32 years. He really had a drive to restore things. He loved taking old cars and make them show-stopping. Anyone who knew him had a story about a car he built. He always made sure to go out and keep the spirits alive of our town. Burn outs for everyone! “Sowing his royal oats” even when he missed a gear. He had a love for fast cars and his “horses under the hood”. He always enjoyed watching his boys and grandkids tearing up the race track. He was always the first to cheer you on or the first to give a good ass chewing.
He was an amazing family man that was always there to help. He could always come up with the solution to any problem. He always had us dragged into his new ideas and projects. But the ending was always beautiful. His advice and strong will will be deeply missed.
“He will forever be racing in the clouds!”
He is survived by his loving wife, Tammy; children, Jason (Tawsha) Cook, Tye (Mandy) Cook, Dennis Cook, Tiffany Cook, Teri Sue (Ean) Erskine and Tuff Cook; 14 grandkids; an adopted son, Brian Wortman; and his dedicated grand-dog Rambo.
