James Edward Warner

Marion - James Edward Warner, 70, of Marion, died peacefully Saturday evening September 5, 2020 at the Kobacker House in Columbus, after a long, hard 3 ½ year battle with Mantle Cell Lymphoma.

He was born November 19, 1949 in Nitro, West Virginia to the late Romie and Audrey (Martin) Warner. He moved to Marion in 1968, but never lost his West Virginia roots.

He is survived by his wife of almost 19 years, Pam (Hicks) Warner and their children: Karrie Warner of Marion, Mark (Jessie) Warner of Marion, Emily (Mat) Elliott of West Mansfield and Adam McPherson of Marion.

Grandchildren: Mackenzie and Trent Warner, Kaylyn, Harper and Cohen Elliott, Wyatt Smith and Addie Cronin.

Siblings: Shirley (Dexter) Hedrick, Donnie (Deb) Warner, Connie (Mike) Raynes and Robin (Steve) Stotts

Many loving nieces, nephews and close friends.

Jim was a caring, loving and wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He loved spending time with family and was so proud of his grandchildren. He just loved to hear them laugh. He also enjoyed spending time under the "Tree of Wisdom" with his closest friends, oh the stories they would tell.

Jim enjoyed going to car shows and cruises with his "car family". One of his greatest hobbies was his beloved (and troublesome) 66 Chevy II. Some people may not have known his name, but the knew his face and his car. It brought him so much pride and joy (and many long hours of work).

Jim worked at Quaker Oats in Marion until it closed in 1989, he then worked at Honda until he retired in 2009. He loved his O.S.U. Buckeyes and still cheered for the W.V. U. Mountaineers.
