Warren G. Manthey, 76, Green Bay, passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2012. He was born in Beaver Dam, Wis., on May 21, 1935, to the late George and Linda (Becker) Manthey. He was graduated from Wayland Academy, Beaver Dam, in 1953. He received a bachelor's degree in economics from Lawrence College, Appleton, Wis., in 1957, where he was enrolled in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. Warren served in the United States Air Force in the 6091st Reconnaissance Squadron, stationed at Yokota Air Base in Fussa, Japan. On returning stateside, he worked briefly for both Ryerson Steel and Standard Oil before he joined Smith, Kline & French Laboratories, for whom he worked as Senior Professional Sales Representative for 30 years. Warren was universally acknowledged as a master storyteller, and his gift was making countless people smile and laugh. He enjoyed golf, trapshooting, cribbage, Dixieland music, and Packer football, but he enjoyed nothing more than his time with his two beautiful grandchildren.
