Born at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on 7 February 1883, son of G. H. Cooke, he was working as a photographer when, in September 1914, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. After the war, he came to Winnipeg and worked as a photographer until at least 1946. He and wife Margaret Rothnie (1895-1970) lived at 667 Ashburn Street. He died at the Deer Lodge Hospital on 29 December 1957 and was buried in the St. James Cemetery.
