 COEUR D ALENE, ID
It's with a very sad and heavy heart to let everyone officially know that John Rook passed away this past Tuesday March 1st of natural causes and peacefully in his sleep in his bed on his beloved 'Rook Ranch' here in Coeur d' Alene.

As his friends know, John fought long and hard for what was right when it  came to his radio stations. And John won every legal battle. But in the process but he lost the war. He was no match for the unlimited funds of those wanting to put him out of business. Ironic that John made so much money for so many owners, wound up in a precarious financial position himself. Now it's going to be even harder on his sister Dot, with whom John lived for many years. If you can contribute anything to this memorial fun, it will make a tangible difference to her and will warm the hearts of all respected and loved John Rook.

Please feel free to share and repost this in his honor.

He will be gone but, never forgotten!

Sending love out, 

Jason Rook

A wonderful man, a great radio person that made DJs into SuperJocks, with ease and elan; only radio person fully deserving, having fully earned, the moniker of "SuperPD." Thanks John, your creativity plays in my mind, forever. dgp
