Bob Cook– Mid-American Coaches- Presented with DSFC’s Tin Man Award in January of 2014
Bob Cook, a driver for Mid-American Coaches, has been a primary driver for DSFC’s recreation program for five years. Last September, he went above and beyond his duty when one client’s luggage, including his medication, was lost, and Cook took him to the pharmacy; and when another client and her mother found out on the trip that their father/husband had had a heart attack and was in the hospital, Cook re-routed the trip so he could personally ensure they arrived at the hospital as soon as possible.
That kind of compassion shows heart, and is why Cook was given a Tin Man Award in January.
“We work with the bus company, we pay them for doing that, but when the driver goes out of his way to make sure people are taken care of, the situation was very stressful . . . then people are just doing that out of the goodness of their heart,” said Kruse.
That deserves recognition.
