He worked for the City of Gulfport running the boiler room at theCourthouse. He was killed in an explosion there. A leak had occurred during the night, and when he opened the iron door in the morning, the explosion occurred, and blew the iron door onto him. He lived until they got him to the hospital.
His grandmother's maiden name was Caradine, and he was christened Thomas Caradine Barrett. Family legend says he did not like the middle name so changed it to Cook. Thomas Cook Barrett is what appears on his headstone.
