Age - 74

December 2, 2023

St. George, Utah - Kent Bryon Cook, 74, passed away November 29, 2023 in St. George, Utah of natural causes. Kent was born January 11, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Vardis Marion Cook and Evelyn Afton Nelson. Kent married Debra (Debbie) Wood June 23, 1972 in the Salt Lake LDS temple. They are the parents of eight children and twenty-seven grandchildren. Kent was an avid hiker, backpacker, and runner. Kent and Debbie raised their family in the Salt Lake area where Kent spent most weekends traversing the Wasatch mountains with his children in tow. Once they were old enough, Kent took each child on an 80 mile backpacking trip along the Uinta Highline Trail and over King’s Peak. Kent’s son Eric was awarded his Eagle merit badge atop King’s Peak in a special scout ceremony. Family vacations often centered around camping and hiking. Kent was the ultimate outdoorsman - long before it was trendy. He dehydrated his meals and devised make-shift packing gear when needed resources were unavailable. As a result of his experience, Kent’s children learned how to sleep on the ground, tackle unexpected weather, and face backcountry obstacles with grit. Anytime anyone asked how much longer they had to hike, he always responded, "Only 100 yards to the top!" We all learned to stop asking. Kent also loved running and completed over 25 marathons. His love for the St. George Marathon inspired he and Debbie to move to Ivins, Utah in 2005. In recent years, Kent could be seen walking the West Canyon Trail in Snow Canyon State Park with his homemade walking stick in hand. He walked his favorite 4-mile trail the day before his passing and was happily active to the end of his life. In addition to his athletic hobbies, Kent loved woodworking and donated over 200 pinewood derby cars to local youth. He held pinewood derby races for residents at the Ivins Veteran’s Home and organized community derby races - all with handmade cars he designed and donated. Nothing made him happier than watching several of his cars blast down the track, nose to nose. He then scrutinized winning cars to configure the absolute fastest design possible. Professionally, Kent ran his own Real Estate brokerage in the Salt Lake area and was known as honest and hard-working. Often, when he sold new homes, Kent would offer a landscaping package, and then employ his children to lay sod or help him install a sprinkling system to teach them how to work. After moving to southern Utah, Kent worked at Ivins City until his retirement in August of 2022. Throughout his life, Kent served diligently in various ward, stake, and leadership callings. He served an LDS mission in Sydney, Australia from 1968-1970. In August of 2023, Kent and Debbie began a full-time mission together, which had always been a personal goal. They were serving as missionaries in the St. George area at the time of his passing. Kent is survived by his wife, Debbie, and seven children: Kristen Cook Nelson, Amber Cook Thompson, David Kent Cook, Cami Cook Ellis, Jonathan Swenson Cook, Hillary Cook Kirschman, and Eric Nelson Cook. He is preceded in death by his son, Scott Ryan Cook; a sister, Nancy Cook Dolle; and both parents. Funeral services will be Friday, December 8, 2023 at 11:00am at the Padre Canyon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ivins, Utah. Visitation will precede the funeral from 9:30am to 10:45am on Friday. Internment will be at Ivins City Cemetery under the direction of McMillan Mortuary, 435-688-8880. In lieu of flowers, Kent’s family has requested loved ones donate to a charity of their choice.Show more

November 15, 2023

St. George, Utah - Steven Jeffry Ricks, 36, passed away unexpectedly, November 12, 2023. Steven Jeffry Ricks (aka "The Beav") was born on December 7, 1986, in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Jeff and Linda Ricks. He grew up in St. George, Utah. Though he was quiet and unassuming on the surface, Steven was hilarious and witty to those who knew him best. Steven was known as the "funcle" to his nieces and nephews, each of whom believed they were his favorite. Steven loved all types of music, especially rock and roll, and found joy in attending concerts, playing vinyls in his room, and picking out a bass riff with his dad. Prior to his death, Steven had finally found love and was in a relationship with Nicole, a beautiful woman who gave Steven a sense of purpose and worth. Steven suffered in silence for most of his life from a seizure disorder that made it difficult for him to enjoy some of the typical life experiences. In spite of his limitations, he was a dedicated and loyal friend, family member, and employee. He rarely missed a day from work due to his illness and became a favorite of the staff and students at Mountain View Montessori where he worked as the head custodian "Mr. Steve". It breaks our hearts that this disorder was ultimately too much for his body to handle and took him from us so early. Steven was a faithful and active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He had a simple but powerful testimony of Jesus Christ and His restored gospel. Steven is survived by his parents, Jeff and Linda Ricks; his sisters: Melissa Ricks (Isaac) and Celeste Snyder (Tyler); his brother, Taylor Ricks (Ruby); four nieces; and four nephews. We all loved and will continue to love him forever. Love you, Steven. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to your favorite cause.
