Warren Floyd Reams August 15, 1920 – February 2, 2012 Warren Floyd Reams quietly passed away with his family by his side on February 2, 2012; he was 91. Warren was born in Fort Lyon, Colorado on August 15, 1920 to Floyd U. and Josephine (Nerger) Reams. He married his wife Leatha Nora Dean of Gunnison on June 18, 1942, in Leadville, CO. He joined and served in the Navy from 1943-1947 as the Chief Petty Officer and drum major on Catalina Island. He graduated from Western State of Colorado, 1950 Westminster Law School, (University of Denver) J.D., 1954. He was a distinguished and valuable member of the Grand Junction legal community for 56 years, serving and supporting many organizations such as St. Joseph's Church, Community Concerts, Mesa County Bar Association, Member (Formerly President, 1964), Assistant District Attorney, 7th Judicial District, 1960, Knights of Columbus, 4th degree (Former Grand Knight), Kiwanis Club of Grand Junction since 1955 (Former President and Lieutenant Governor). He is survived by his wife, Leatha of 69 years; brother, Dwight Reams of Holdenville OK; sisters, Deloras Kirby of Phoenix, AZ, and Tina Jones of Woodland TX; his four sons, William (Pat) of Las Vegas NV; Melvin (Diana) of Denver, CO; Charles (Sally) of Grand Junction; Paul (Amy) of Las Vegas, as well as seven grandchildren, Guy, Misty, Zack, Mallory, Abigail, Rebecca, and Lynn and five great-grandchildren, Ayden, Jolie, Belle, Sophia, and Ella. Warren enjoyed many activities with his family and he found his most solace in fishing and hunting. There is not an inch of Western Colorado he had not fished or hunted. From the inception of his legal practice, Warren garnered respect from his peers for his unerring litigation tactics. His previous life as a respected farmer, miner, and fly-fisherman allowed him to 'walk the line' with any jury, and he successfully litigated his client's position at any level of justice. Honest, unrelenting, and an accomplished orator his approach was meticulous. One of his favorite applicable quotes from Omar Khayyam: The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it. Visitation for Mr. Reams will be from 5 - 7:00 p.m. at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary, 2515 Patterson Road, Grand Junction, on Tuesday, February 7th. A Rosary will follow at 7:00 p.m. Mass will be held Wednesday, February 8, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Joseph's Church with burial to follow in Orchard Mesa.
