Matthew Shawn Cook, age 37 of Draper, Virginia passed away April 19, 2023. Matthew was born March 5, 1986 in Radford Virginia. “Matt” is the son of Living mother Brendalea Farmer– and is preceded in death by loving father Marvin Jessie Cook, a brother Luke Esley Cook, and was the beloved grandson to late Walter Edward Farmer and Frances Irene Sutphin. Matthew has two beautiful sons, Shawn and Austin Cook.

Matthew was a social butterfly and had a one of a kind personality, he was generous with people to a fault, and one of the most down to earth people you can come by. His uplifting spirit and high energy will be missed by all of his friends and family. After a courageous battle with unfortunate events and depression, Matthew decided that life on earth was unbearable. He will be remembered for the resilience to the cards he was dealt and the battle he did put up against his depression. His beautiful smile and silly sense of humor will live on in our memories.

Matthew will be cremated and the family will have a private ceremony amongst themselves once they have time to collect themselves up from this tragedy.
