Cook Family Funeral Home has announced it has sold the business to Tim Dinan and Alison Hahn.

David John Cook, Doreen Cook and family have owned and operated the funeral home since 2005. The funeral home has been a family-owned business since its early beginnings in the 1940s on Bainbridge Island.

David and Doreen Cook stated they were very careful when choosing a buyer and they wanted to ensure the new owners shared the same philosophy and sense of community that the Cook’s have for their client families.

“We are grateful for the strong community support for our business over the years,” said David Cook. “We have grown to love the area and the people we have been able to serve. We are very pleased with the opportunity to move the funeral home forward with Tim and Alison. It was our goal to keep the funeral home family-owned, always offering the family touch.”

The funeral home will retain the Cook name with no major changes, the Cooks said.

Families who hold prearranged/prepaid funerals or cremations will find that their arrangements have been transferred to the new ownership.

Terms of the sale were not disclosed.

Dinan is a fourth-generation funeral director and has been serving families for more than 30 years. His great-grandfather started the family funeral home in Philadelphia in 1890.

Though new to funeral service, Hahn has spent more than 30 years caring for people in the dental field. She said she considers her new position a calling and looks forward to being of service to the families of the area.
