Gaylen Cook

April 6, 1953 — October 3, 2018

Gaylen Henry Cook of Goshen, Utah died October 3, 2018 at his home after a long courageous battle with cancer. He was born April 6, 1953 in Nephi, Utah to Vivian Doyle Cook and Marjory Jean Petersen. He married the love of his life Yauna Johnson on June 24, 1972.

Gaylen worked for mining companies in Tintic, oil fields, ranching, and retired from Rayloc. He loved being outdoors, camping, hunting, working cattle, and breaking colts. His greatest love was spending time with family and friends, especially his grandchildren.
