Warwick Jesse Maxfield passed away suddenly from a heart attack while camping in Chehalis, Washington, on September 9, 2011. Warwick was 49 years young at the time of his early departure from this world.

Warwick was born in Port Angeles to Dudley and Dinah Maxfield. He was raised and grew up in Forks.

Directly out of school, he went into the Air Force as a firefighter and was stationed in both Alaska and Montana.

He worked in Forks and Port Angeles in the early 1980s as an EMT, later moving to Hobart, Indiana, and working as a firefighter. He then moved to Michigan, where he worked for the Michigan State Prison System.

In 2006, Warwick moved back to Washington and rekindled his relationship with high school sweetheart Debbie (Burge) Kola. The couple married in 2008, and made their residence together in Hoquiam, Washington, where he worked at both the Grays Harbor Juvenile Detention Center as well as Harbor Pacific Bottling Company.

Warwick is survived by his loving wife, Debbie Maxfield of Hoquiam, Washington; and parents Dudley and Dinah Maxfield of Port Angeles.

Also surviving are Warwick's three children from previous marriages: son Jesse [30] (Rachel) of Indiana; daughter Stephanie [22] of Indiana; daughter Lynsey [15] of Michigan; and stepson Bobby Kola [22], Austin "Skippy" Bull [22] and Bill Bull [26] of Hoquiam.

Siblings surviving are sisters Raewyn and Jane; and brothers Gary (Whitney) and Wayne (Christine).

Also surviving Warwick is his very special grandma, Elsie Motteler, and three grandkids, Zoe, Zack and Maddie. He has numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins residing in New Zealand.

Warwick was an avid outdoorsman. His passion was for hunting, fishing and spending time with friends and family.

Fern Hill Funeral Home of Aberdeen, Washington, is in charge of arrangements.

A potluck celebration of his life will be held Saturday, September 17, 2011, at 1 p.m. at the VFW Hall, 110 S. Spartan Avenue in Forks.
