Vere Eugene Warner

Vere Eugene Warner died on May 23 at his home in Battlement Mesa.

He attended college in Ohio and then joined the U.S. Army as a court reporter. He was stationed mainly in Germany.

Warner married and had two children, and then moved to Colorado Springs. He started four men’s clothing stores and one woman’s clothing shop.

After divorcing, he came to Glenwood Springs and then to Aspen, where he worked for Obermeyer Sports as a financial director with Mr. Obermeyer for several years.

He was a very ambitious man and always worked hard. He made friends easily and was crushed when he would apply for a job the last year, only to be told he was too old to work. He always felt and acted if he was only 48 years old.

He is survived by his friend of 27 years, Mary Perkins of Battlement Mesa.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 1, at 11 a.m. at the Chapel at Farnum-Holt, 405 W. Seventh St. in Glenwood Springs.

Memorial contributions may be sent to any Alpine Bank, care of the Gene Warner Memorial Fund. A bench dedicated to his memory will be placed facing the river on the walking path in Glenwood Springs.
