Rev. Jimmie Allen Cone, 88, of Paragould, passed from this life on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, at The Green House Cottages of Belle Meade. He was born in Greene County on November 5, 1934, to the late James and Roxie Adams Cone. Jimmie was a veteran having served his country in the United States Army. He married Clara Garner on July 4, 1956. Jimmie retired from the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department after 15 years as a guard. He was also a retired Southern Baptist preacher having pastored at Stonewall Baptist Church. He loved his cats and birds, and they brought him much joy to care for them. Jimmie had many hobbies including fishing, playing guitar, gardening, horseshoes, and writing southern gospel songs.

He was preceded in death by his father, James Luther Cone, and mother and step-father, Roxie and Burrell Kendall.
