Hi Nick,

Being very new to this industry I contacted a member off InterNACHI looking for a mentor. I chose a member who was very active on the forums and always had great useful information.
I sent him an e-mail to find out if he would ever be interested in mentoring me, but that I understood if he had no interest due to us living only 40 minutes apart. He explained that he is retired from inspections but would be happy to give me a call to help get me started.
This phone call led to an invitation to his home where this gentleman and his lovely wife taught me extremely valuable lessons about inspecting a home and running a business.
Roy & Char Cooke helped me start my career and wouldn't even accept a dime for their time.
They gave me the confidence I needed to perform my first home inspection, along with knowledge that I use everyday in the field. Roy has helped me identify defects in pictures sent over e-mail when I'm writing reports, and has helped me get passed the tears and anxiety of unreasonable clients. I wanted to quit in my first week, and I really would not have made it into the 2nd month mark now without the support from Roy and Char. I could not express enough in writing how truly grateful I am to have met these two wonderful people. It's really great to meet such kind people in this industry willing to help new inspectors.

Thank you for providing this industry with such great networking, and allowing me to find such a great mentor.

Thank you,

I have found him to be consistently sincere in his care and commitment to the welfare of home inspectors in Canada and the United States. He's the real deal.

Much of Roy's kindness and generosity goes under the radar and without notice.

Several years ago, as I was recovering from a bout with cancer resulting in a complete nephrectomy, Roy called me - not only to cheer me up but to offer me one of his own kidneys for a transplant. His kind gesture and offer of sacrifice did more to heal me than any of my medication.

Praising the goodness of Roy Cooke is certainly worth more than the annual visit to this message board.

If there were more people like Roy in every profession, the working world would be a better place for everyone.

Roy deserves this tribute.

Roy has also reached out to me and offered his assistance anytime. We had a great conversation and I really appreciated him taking his time to do so. I have also spent a lot of time going thru old post and one common the one thing that I always see is him giving advice and sharing his knowledge. I know he has already received the member of the year award and he truly deserves that recognition.


Maybe a new award can be started for "Retired Member of the Year" for those that continue to help others and contribute to InterNACHI even after leaving the business. I for one think that he would be a great nomination and very deserving of such award.

Hope to see you again Roy.
