Anyone who grew up in San Antonio that is older than 25 knows the legend that was Dan Cook. The lodestar of sports journalism for half a century has passed.
I had the good fortune of working for a bank during the summers in college. Mr. Cook would come in every week to deposit a check. He was always friendly and chatty with us. I even mentioned to him my last week, before I headed back for my senior of college, that I really enjoyed his Benjamin P. Broadhind columns.
San Antonio has lost a legend. Rest in peace, Mr. Cook.
