Robert Norman Warren, 81, of Sun City, passed away on September 11, 2018.

Memorial service will be held 1:00pm Monday, September 17, 2018 at Sunland Mortuary with Deacon Ernest Martinez officiating.

Robert was born in Tacoma, Washington to Sam and Alberta Warren. He is survived by his wife Carol of 46 years, and Brother Eddie Arnold (Cindy), multiple nieces and nephews, sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws.

He served in the U.S. Army in the Engineering Division at Fort Benning, Georgia during the Viet-Nam era as a Company Clerk and was honorably discharged. He then moved to Denver Colorado and obtained a license as a Stationary Operating Engineer and Steamfitter, and worked in medical facilities.

He thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, backpacking, fishing, boating, motorcycles and golf. He was an avid gun enthusiast and very patriotic. He loved the Denver Broncos and loved to converse with family and friends about world issues. He was a jokester and sometimes a practical prankster.

He then moved to Arizona in 1988 to warm up from the cold Colorado winters where he continued to enjoy the outdoors. He retired in 1996 and joined the Sun City Posse as a volunteer and committed to keep the community safe.

Many thanks to the Banner Hospice Staff for the excellent care provided.

What can a gal say about the greatest brother in law in the world? The Robinhood of Keebler will forever be in our hearts and greatly missed. He left us with many wonderful memories. I had the great fortune of knowing Bob for most of my life as he and my sister Carol met when I was a baby. He was my brother from another mother and as I grew older I appreciated him more and more as our relationship grew. He offered great advice but what I will miss the most is his quick wit and great laugh. I love you brother, until we meet again. May God bless you & keep you in His light and in His love.

Carol:
I remember meeting you and Bob in Denver for first time. I thought y'all made a great couple and I was right. You've been together for so many years and throughout that time I could always tell how much you loved each other. I always enjoyed being around Bob. He was always cracking a joke and making me laugh. I know this time has been hard for you but I know someday you will see him again. He will be greatly missed.
Love,
Cindy Arnold

One of my earliest memories of my brother Bob when I was about 3 or 4 was him mopping the floor while our mother was away. He put a lot of soapy water on the floor and then with it soaking wet he put skates on both of us and we skated around the apartment. By the time mom got home the floor was dry and really clean. I am going to miss his funny antics. I will miss you Bob. Love from your brother Eddie.

Carol,
I am sending you all of my love and prayers. Bobby was such a kind and generous soul. We were so blessed to have him in our family! I will always treasure how he would call me his favorite teacher! It brings a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart to remember him! Bobby, I will look forward to meeting again in the kingdom of God!

We only new Bob for two years, but that was long enough to get a good idea of who he was. We saw him go through his troubles with grace and are thankful he is at peace. We will miss our time on the porch with him and his sense of humor. There will always be a open spot in our hearts. Our prayers and thoughts are with Carol during this time....we are always here for her.

Sweetest Carol,
Porch time in the hood will never be the same again. Your Bob will forever be missed; however, all of the memories and his beautiful spirit will remain close to our hearts forever. Thoughts and prayers for comfort and courage as you continue on with this crazy journey called life.

Bob was a very sweet and pleasant man and always willing to lend helping hand. He and his wife Carol became good friends to me and I always enjoyed visiting them and helping with their garage sale. He will be miss by many good friends and family. He could fix anything and build anything as evidenced by their home inside and out. He helped Carol with her many creative crafts and took joy in show them off to friends and family.

After much suffering, he is in a better place and pain free.

First of all I was Bob's second wife and shared his life for 10-1/2 years. While we parted ways, we were never enemies and had only good things to say about one another, but I digress. Whenever I see lemons I think of Bob. Many, many years after we had parted I started having kidney stones and eventually read on the internet that fresh lemon juice(lemonade) had been working as a deterrent to the stones. I mentioned this to a mutual friend in Arizona but said that the scrawniest lemon here in Kansas was at least $1.00 a piece and so I wouldn't be trying it. A few weeks later I came home from work to find a box from Sun City and it was full of lemons. Bob had heard about my conversation and sent them. I then began receiving two boxes of lemons every season and it worked. He refused to take even postage money and I only hope he and Carol knew how much they were appreciated. She even made sure that I got a box of them after he was no longer at home. I was saddened to hear about his passing and as I said, whenever I see lemons I think of him. Carol, you have my deepest sympathy and if there is anyway possible that I can make it to Denver for his memorial there, I will. All my love, Donna.
