In his early years, he was a dairyman as was his father William Cooksey, however, he answered the call and became a full time minister in the service of his Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 39. He was of the Assembly of God faith and served as minister to the Otter Creek, Monticello, Pine Grove, Ivan, and Woodside Heights churches. Following retirement he attended Heritage Assembly of God church.

Although, he was well known for his gentle nature, he was also known for his great physical strength which earned him the nickname "Bull" while playing football for Leon High School. He served his country during WWII in the Florida National Guard. His greatest legacy was the love he had for his family. No matter what any of us did to offend him, he never stopped loving, caring and praying for us. We have never known anyone who personified the love of Jesus Christ as well as he. Another important legacy was the work ethic instilled in each of his children, all of whom are well known for their devotion to duty.
