Obituary of Joe Jeffrey Cone

Joe Jeffrey Cone was born in Chanute, Kansas on October 19, 1943, died October 8, 2022, after a brief illness. He was raised in Victoria, Texas by parents Jeff and Helen Cone and attended Victoria High School (Stingarees). Joe was active in the DeMolay Chapter in Victoria and was very proud of being awarded the Chevalier Degree, the highest honor.

Upon graduation from Victoria High School, then Joe attended Victoria Junior College (Pirates). While there, he was elected and served his Sophomore year as the Student Counsel President. His Junior year, Joe transferred to the University of Houston. As an undergraduate, he was active in Student Government and served as a Senator. Joe graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree, and he “claimed” to have never missed a University of Houston Football home game since 1978.

Joe then attended University of Houston Law School and has practiced law in Houston since 1970 in the field of personal injury law. His legal assistant was Mrs. Elvira “Vera” Morales, and they formed a good team representing clients.

Joe was a member of Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. There he coached many teams his children played on and that was his passion. The players and their parents admired the way he encouraged them to excel and have fun at the same time. He coached over 80 teams including Boys & Girls soccer, basketball, softball and baseball.

Joe is survived by his loving wife, Angela, and his four children, Jeff, Jamie, Brooke and Parker and his sister Janet Melton, and family.

A funeral service will be held at ten o’clock in the morning on Friday, October 14, 2022, at Forest Park Westheimer Funeral Home, 12800 Westheimer Rd Houston, TX 77077, in celebration of his life.
