In Memoriam

James (Jim) Cook, passed away last week. Following an early career with Proctor and Gamble, Jim joined his family's business, Concord Litho (Concord, NH), in 1960.  He was a long-time NCDC supporter and helped many Catholic organizations over his career, as well as maintaining relationships them after retirement. He is fondly remembered by many NCDC members as a mentor and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with the staff of Concord Direct, including Jim’s sons Tom and Peter, as well as the rest of the Cook family.
