James E. Cone, 79, of Cheyenne, Wyo., passed away April 30, 2010, at Davis Hospice Center one day before his 80th birthday.

He was born May 1, 1930, in Hanover, N.H., to Earl and Lila (Hosking) Cone.

He attended Norwich University in Vermont, but left college to enlist in the United States Air Force. He served his country as a B-29 gunner in the Korean War from 195-1954. He was later selected to attend Officer Candidate School and graduated in 1958 as a Second Lieutenant. Jim went on to serve his country in Vietnam from 1965-1966. After 20 years of active duty, he retired as a Major in 1971. He was the Commander of Security Police at F.E. Warren Air Force Base. His remaining years were spent working for the Wyoming State Livestock Board and on various ranches in the Cheyenne area. Jim had a true love and respect for all animals and was a cowboy at heart – born a century too late.

He is survived by his daughters and their spouses, Lynda and Stacy Freeman of Meridian, Idaho; Rhonda and John Bowers of Monument, Colo.; and Lisa and Loren Pearson of Boise, Idaho; seven grandchildren, Jason Hammock, Mark, Alison and Scott Bowers, Kelli and Katie Freeman, and Ryan McManamon; his brother, Bob Cone, of New Hampshire; and his guardian angel, Samantha Johnson of Cheyenne, Wyo.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Carol Ann (Cadorette) Cone, and his parents Earl and Lila Cone.

A private family service was planned.
