He was born Jan. 25, 1944, in Portsmouth, Va., the son of Joseph Elwood Cosner and Dorothy Helen Garrett. Mr. Cosner worked with the Johnson County Air Commission until his retirement in 2006.
He moved to Boonville in 2008 in order to be closer to his family. He was known as a Mr. Fixit, who would bend over backward to help folks. He enjoyed anything to do with outdoors and nature, as well as music of all kinds — especially country. He enjoyed the company of Ammie, his dog.
Mr. Cosner is survived by his children, David (Jessica) Cosner, Kim (Florand) Goxho and Helen (Kyle) Roberts, all of Boonville; his sisters, Dorothy Register of Lake City, Fla., Cheryl Sigmund of Council Bluffs, Iowa, Karen Bunch of Smithfield, Va., and Jeannene Midgette of Omaha; and seven grandchildren.
