MISSOULA — Donald James Warner, 67, died May 13, 2018 after a brief illness.
Don was born Sept. 29, 1950 to Robert and Kathyrn Warner in West Allis, Wisconsin. An adventurous soul from the beginning, Don had a passion for speed, motorcycles in his younger years and cars later in life. Upon coming west, he spent many a day skiing, hiking and mountain climbing throughout the western United States. Lolo Pass and the Tobacco Root Mountains always held a special place in his heart. In his later years he spent his time shooting and developed a love for Christ, serving Him to the end.
Don was a Vietnam Era vet, proudly serving his Country with the United States Air Force. He had a lifelong love of learning, demonstrated by earning a Master’s Degree in Psychology. He applied this knowledge by working for the State of Montana in several capacities throughout his career, providing care and support for those most in need.
He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his two children, six beloved grandchildren and two brothers and their families.
Graveside Services are set for Friday May 18 at noon at the Western Montana Veteran’s Cemetery in Missoula.
