  • Sunday 8:00am-10:00am
Tony Cookston
Born in Bloomington Indiana, I spent most of my childhood in Oregon. I graduated Aloha High School in 1990 and attended a private college in Southern California. I have worked for Parr Lumber Company since 1989. I married my lovely bride 1992 and have two amazing daughters. I started with Parr as a part-time cleanup kid and worked my way up to yard manager in 2009. I currently manage Parr Lumber’s Newberg location and am enjoying the opportunity to host the Weekend Warriors Home Improvement show airing every week on radio stations across the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy camping, playing softball and family trips to the Oregon dunes to ride Quads in the sand.

Born and raised in Flint Michigan, I moved to Oregon in 2004 after going to college at Northern Michigan University. I immediately started work at Parr Lumber Company and am now an outside contractor salesman at our West Linn yard. During the summer you can usually find me at the softball fields or working on my house. I also enjoy woodworking and spending time with my wife, daughter and newborn son.
