Hit Parade Hall of Fame 2016

“It is with a heavy heart that we inform the Radio industry and friends of John Rook that he passed away two days ago on Tuesday, March 1st of natural causes and peacefully in his sleep in his home on his beloved ‘Rook Ranch’ in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho.

John was 78 but going on 38. He had such a youthful spirit despite his health deteriorating over this past year. He hated ‘getting old’ but, maintained a positive face for family and friends.

He requested no official funeral or service but, stay tuned for further details as we will provide updates in the coming days.

In difficult times John’s go to phrase was ‘this to shall pass…’

He will be gone but, never forgotten!
