Grandpa Herb passes away

Trevor's Grandpa passed away Saturday. David and Linda wrote a very nice obituary. Linda is hanging in there. She has been so good to take care of her Dad. She had made so many trips to Vegas to take care thing to numerous to name and been a great support for him. She is such a wonderful person. I couldn't ask for a better Mother-in-Law! Love you Linda!

Herbert James Warne passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2009 at 4:30 pm PDT in Las Vegas, Nevada as a result of causes incident to age. He was a resident of Henderson, Nevada. He was 88 years of age.

Herbert was born the son of Earl and Julia Warne on October 2, 1920 in Erie, Pennsylvania. Music was an important part of his life from his youngest years, when he learned to play the trumpet. His trumpet playing would remain with him throughout his lifetime – playing in bands in high school, in the Army and later, in his own band.

Herb served his country faithfully during the Second World War in the European theatre in the 10th Armored Division of General George Patton's 3rd Army, and was among those called "America's Greatest Generation."

After the war, Herb moved to southern California, where he attended Glendale Community College and then UCLA, graduating with a degree in Accounting. This gave impetus to his life's vocation as a purchasing agent. A large part of his career was spent at Max Factor Corporation.

While at college, Herb formed his own band, which played at clubs and functions through the Los Angeles area. “Herb Warne and his Orchestra” were a big hit. One night, their pianist was absent and they had to get a last minute replacement. Rose Christensen was available and she stepped in like a pro. Herb was so impressed with this striking pianist, he began to date her and it led to their eventual marriage. Rose and Herb were married in August of 1948 and raised three daughters during their 25 year marriage: Marilyn Mills, Linda Marie Bradford and Janice Loraine Warne, all of whom survive Herb.

In addition to his music, Herb loved boating and fishing, instilled in him from his childhood growing up on Lake Erie. He never missed an opportunity to be out on the ocean or on a lake, engaging in his favorite pastime, fishing.

Herb moved to the Las Vegas area in 1989 with Margaret Moser who was his trusted friend and companion for 27 years.

Herb leaves his three daughters, their husbands, Dean, David and Joe, 7 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.

May He Rest in Peace.

Herb had asked to be cremated so we are planning a memorial service in August.

Montana Vacation

The month of July has been busy. We went to Montana over the 4th of July weekend and had a little family vacation. David, (Trevor's Dad) grew up in Red Lodge Montana. It was his 40th High School Reunion, so he invited us all to come along with him. Linda ( Trev's Mom) was not feeling well so she was unable to come and David Eric's family were not able to come either. It was David, Angela's Family, Aimee's Family, and our little family. It was a lot of fun!

Welcome to Yellowstone. At this stop we also saw a Grizzly bear. The kids were very excited. Okay, the big kids were too!

All the grand kids that were with us and Papa

I thought this was a fun lawn decoration. I had the privilege of taking a picture of this flag while we sat in the truck waiting for the police officer to write Trevor a speeding ticket!

We went out to this cool ranch on Sunday. It was over 10,000 acres. It was beautiful!

If you look close there is a herd of elk that ran by us in this picture.

They had 3 new baby horses. They were so cute!
This was a cool barn that they moved from one side of the property and turned it into a saloon.

This is the bar inside. It has is a 1890's bar out of Missoula. They had it restored. It is beautiful!
