The Spark Plug Collectors of America is sad to announce that Joe Cook, longtime club director, contributor and friend, passed away on June 27, 2012.
Joe joined the Spark Plug Collectors Of America club in 1994. He became Co-Editor of the IGNITOR club magazine and later became a member of the Board of Directors. While Co-Editor of the IGNITOR magazine, Joe had won numerous achievement awards for the magazine. A “Golden Quill” award was presented to him every year from the prestigious Old Cars Weekly automotive journal. Joe, along with other club board members, was instrumental in decision making on rulings of the club. Joe would attend the Portland, IN and Hershey, PA annual tractor and car shows with his son, Peter. Joe also was a member of other interesting clubs, such as Gas Engine Collectors and Metal Detecting.
