Bio: Major Cosmo M. Barone, age 80, of Garnet Valley, PA died peacefully at home on October 11, 2013. Born in Wilmington, DE and raised in Kennett Square, PA., he resided for the past 16 years in Garnet Valley, PA., previously residing in Frazer, PA. Cosmo attended West Point for one year, 1953-54, but never lost his admiration for The Point.

He commissioned as an Army officer at Fort Benning, OCS class 58-2, and after Jump School was assigned to Fort Ord, CA. It was there he met and married the love of his life, Bobbie Davis Barone. In 1965 Cosmo received a BS from the University of Omaha. He earned an MS in 1973 from George Washington University. Cosmo served in the 1st, 8th and 25th Infantry Divisions, commanded three companies and was a battalion XO. His awards include a Legion of Merit, three Bronze Stars and a dozen other awards including the Medaille Militaire with Palm from the Cambodian Army.

After retiring in 1976, Cosmo worked for Burroughs/Unysis Corporation as a Network consultant in many parts of the US and several foreign countries. He retired from Unysis after 18 years and was employed as a software project manager for GE. After retiring from GE, he worked as a freelance programmers and network specialist. A man of many passions, Cosmo loved classical music, art, comedy, football, steam locomotives and computers, but most of all, he loved all his family and his Company C Men (his fellow Vietnam heroes).
