William (Bill) LaMone Kone was safely called home the morning of January 5, 2023, at the age of 81.

Bill was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 12, 1941, to parents Eddie LaMone Kone and Mavis Afton Atkinson Kone. Bill was the oldest of five, followed by sister, Mavis Merle Kone, brother, Eddie Clyde Kone, sister, Sally Ann Kone (Tom Olson) and brother Ben George Kone (Linda Kone).

Bill was a proud graduate of the class of ’60 from Granger High School. He lived a long and accomplished life. Bill dedicated his career to Granite School District as an Operations Coordinator distributing school supplies across the Salt Lake valley between Dec 1, 1968, and June 30, 2003.

In 1987, Bill and Nancy Taylor welcomed their only son (and child) Bret Kone. Bill took great pride in the well-being and protection of his son.

Quick witted and full of knowledge, Bill was a natural master of all trades. He enjoyed constructing many different things; not once did Bill hesitate to lend a helping hand to the people he was around.

As a successful hunter and an avid camper, Bill was able to make unforgettable memories, with family and friends. He will be missed dearly but will live on in our hearts.

Bill is preceded in death by his loving parents, sister, Merle and brothers, Eddie, and Ben. Survived by son, Bret Kone, sister, Sally Olson (Tom Olson), Aunt, Jean Walton, and cherished cousins, nieces, and nephews.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, January 12, 2023, at 1pm at Mount Olivet Cemetery 1342 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, Utah 84102. Under the direction of Larkin Mortuary.


It's been a year since you have passed. I can feel you over my shoulder, hear you giving me pointers of how to go about accomplishing things. I didn't thank you enough for being my Dad. I am very lucky.

I think you'd be very proud of me. Everything you taught me has been a blessing. You've probably gotten some good exercise rolling in your coffin but I haven't done anything outrageous to make you come back.

There are some members of the family that you would be severely disappointed in. It's unimaginable, what the effects of losing a loved one, does to family. No one misses you more than I do.

I hope you are resting peacefully. I miss you every flipping day!! Love ya Dad!
