Deseret News and Larkin Funeral Home, 07/23/17
Robert Glen Warner was born to Reed E. and Hazel L. Warner on October 25, 1944, in Spanish Fork, Utah. He died at the age of 72 on July 19, 2017, from liver failure caused by cancer. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who served willingly when called. He prepared his High Priest lessons weeks in advance and loved to do Home Teaching.
He married Lana Lee Payne on April 19, 1967, in Bloomington, Idaho. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on June 19, 1999. His family was his pride and joy and he loved them all unconditionally. We will always remember his contagious sense of humor, the twinkle in his eyes, his hugs and his love of the “UTES”. He was an Eagle Scout and could build anything. He spent weekends and holidays remodeling our 150 year old farm house in Bear Lake. It took a long time but he did 99% of it himself and it was a proud accomplishment for him. He loved the farm and his completely restored bright red International Super C tractor. He drove it in the parade on the 4th of July in Paris, Idaho – usually with a child on his lap.
Bob worked hard all of his life and was a great provider. He was a store manager for Albertson’s and a print salesman and production manager for Color Litho Lab, a family owned business. He retired in 2008 from Printech.
If Bob was in a room, there was laughter and happiness. When his grandchildren started to talk he would tell them “say Bob and I’ll give you a horse”. As a result of his love, they would come in the house and immediately look around and ask “where’s Bob?”
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, his sons Robert Glenn (Sharon), Christopher Russell and 5 grandchildren: Garrett Robert Warner, Dallin Evan Warner, Mekayla Ann Warner, Madison Leigh Warner and Marcus Ethan Warner. Brothers: Reed Eugene (Kathy), Gary C. (Gwen), Steven C., Ronald C. (Colleen), Michael C. (Connie) and sister Mary Ann. Brothers and sisters in law: Rao and Sandra, Wayne and Jolene, Craig and Robin, Kelly and Julie, and David and Celine.
Preceded in death by his parents and three grandsons: Braiden Ethan, Cameron Drew and Mason Ellis.
He leaves many precious memories and a hole in our lives and hearts.
