Obituary for Philip Michael Cone

Philip M. Cone, 68, a resident of Calumet passed away on Friday, November 23, 2018 at UP Health System-Marquette.

He was born on November 8, 1950 in Kokomo, Indiana to James Robert and Phyllis Ruth (McQuillan) Cone.

During his youth, he and his family moved up to Calumet, and he graduated from Calumet High School with the Class of 1968 and attended Northern Michigan University. Phil was a fantastic athlete, playing for the Calumet Copper Kings boys basketball team and the football team. He also played softball for the local teams.

At the age of 17, Phil enlisted with the United States Army. He served during Vietnam, and was honorably discharged on April 21, 1970. He was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal.

Phil was the owner/operator of Cone’s Auto Body on Pine Street in Calumet. He was highly skilled, and passionate about his work. Even after he retired, you would often find him in his shop.

Phil was an avid fisherman, and loved spending time at the lake. He also enjoyed partridge hunting and made sure to share his hunting knowledge with his kids. He was also a rockhound, often searching for the pieces of Greenstone and Datolite. Once he found that perfect piece, often you could find him focusing on making a piece of jewelry out of it.

Phil was an amazing guitarist, playing in many bands throughout the Copper Country. His favorite artist was Jimi Hendrix. He was also a prolific writer.

Phil was active in all of his children’s lives. He was a very proud father and grandfather.

He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Phyllis Cone.

He is survived by his children:
James (Janelle) Cone of Houghton
Josh (Christine) Cone of Marquette
Angela (Ben) Traczyk of Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
Amy (Lorn) Randell of Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
Krista (Josh) Siler of Minneapolis, Minnesota
His grandchildren:

His siblings: Shirley (Roy) Roland, Deb (Curtis) Stahl, Julie (Roger) Cosby, Leo Cone and
Jennifer (Andy) Ertel
