Elon – Donald Scott Cook, 46, passed away suddenly on Monday, March 25, 2019 at Alamance Regional Medical Center. He was born in Decatur, GA on February 2, 1973 to Donald M. Cook and Robin Janelle Cook, and was the beloved husband of 19 years to Catharine “Cathy” Doles Cook.
Scott was a commercial real estate appraiser with Driggers Commercial Group in Saint Simons Island, Georgia. He was pursuing his Member Appraisal Institute (MAI) designation by the Appraisal Institute, the highest achievement available to an appraiser. Scott graduated from South Gwinnett High School in 1991 and received his Bachelor of Business Administration from West Georgia College in 1996. He was a member of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Scott and Catharine moved from Snellville, GA to Elon, NC in 2008.
Scott was passionate about fantasy football, the New York Jets, the Georgia Bulldogs, 80’s hair metal bands and soccer. After the arrival of his precious daughters, Caitlin and Morgan, he transitioned into the role of a lively soccer dad. Most weekends and several nights during the week, you would find him on a soccer field, cheering on his girls. He was so passionate about the game of soccer that he joined the board of directors for the Burlington Soccer Club in 2018. Scott was a devoted husband, father, son and brother, whose presence in our lives will be dearly missed.

Doles; a brother-in-law, Rev. Brian C. Doles; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly.
