George Edward Warson, 87, passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 6, in Donnellson.
George was well-loved and loved-well.
He was born on Aug. 12, 1934, to Delbert W. Warson and Dorothy (Hohl) Warson, at the home of his grandparents, Phillip and Martha Hohl, just north of Primrose.
He served in the Army from 1957-1962; he was stationed in Europe for a year. Throughout the years, George would entertain his children by showing the slides of his travels across Europe.
George married Delores (Baldwin) Warson on Sept. 24, 1966. They later divorced but remained friends.
George was a farmer, but his first love was flying. After he learned to fly, he would take his children out on Saturday morning flights. George enjoyed going to town to drink coffee with his friends; the 'Donnellson Coffee Club' remained an important part of his life throughout and brightened his days with laughter and friendship. He also enjoyed golfing, fishing, and bowling. He was a Mason for more than 50 years, a member of George Washington Lodge #618. His greatest gift was his love for family and friends and demonstrated through multiple acts of kindness.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his niece Kay (Ulm) Stumpf, and brother-in-law Bernard (Bernie) Ulm.
He is survived by his sister, Laila (Warson) Ulm; his children, Ron (Hope) Krebill of Fairway, Kan., Brian Warson of Donnellson, Alana Warson of Iowa City; granddaughters, Cicely Krebill of Providence, RI, and Ariana Warson of Iowa City; nephew Michael (Anne) Ulm; and several cousins.
A kind, gentle soul, George will be missed by family and friends.
Interment will be at a later date. No memorial will be established, we just request simple acts of kindness toward others.
