Russell Edward Warner

Obituary Condolences

Devoted Husband, Father, Grandfather and Friend
On Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2008 Russell Edward Warner, Jr. left us to be with the Lord.
Russell was born Aug. 1, 1946 to Russell and Lillian Warner. He was a 1964 graduate of Struthers High in Struthers, Ohio. He joined the Air Force in 1965 and spent the next 19 years in service to his country before being medically retired. Russell served in the Viet Nam War. After his medical discharge he went to work for Civil Service at Holloman AFB for more than twenty years. During this time he also received his Masters Degree in Counseling.
Russell is survived by his wife of 38 years, Maureen, of the family home; sons Robert Warner and Tammy Asberry of Florida, Daniel Warner and wife, Audra, of Colorado; daughters Donna Strecker and husband, Richard, of California, Tammy Garcia and husband, Angel, and Diana Cano and husband, James, all of Alamogordo; sisters Darlene Knight and husband, Glen, of Arizona and Brenda Reynolds and husband, Dennis, of England; daughter-in-law Tina Warner of La Luz; 13 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren and many, many friends.
We will all miss Russell's sense of humor; he could always make you laugh. From now on think of thunder as a good joke Russell told in the heavens above.
A memorial service will be conducted at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2008 at the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel with Chuck Moon officiating. Inurnment will follow at Monte Vista Cemetery with military honors provided by the Holloman Air Force Base Steel Talons Honor Guard.
The Warner family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the funeral arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
