At 13 Seth died of old age

He lived his life like it was the only one he had. He never let his illness slow him down. So by age 13 he had been a stunt pilot, a sheriff, and an explorer.

Seth Cook, who lived in Darrington and captured hearts all over the world, died Monday at his home with his family around him. He was 13 years old and had recently suffered a heart attack as a consequence of progeria, a rare disorder that causes accelerated aging.

His Illness robbed him of time but not of life.
