Harold ‘Bud’ Warnick

FAIRMONT — Harold “Bud” E. Warnick, 78, of Newburg, Scotch Hill Community, formerly of Benton’s Ferry in Marion County, passed away Nov. 16, 2011 at the Louis A. Johnson Veterans Administration Medical Center in Clarksburg following a long battle with cancer.

He was born Oct. 5, 1933 in Lower Town, Md., a son of the late Howard E. and Alice V. Nutter Warnick.

Harold retired from the U.S. Army with 23 years of service. He was a two-tour veteran of the Korean War, serving as a military policeman. His military career took him all over the United States. He especially enjoyed living in Alaska. Following his retirement, he worked in Cumberland, Md., before returning to Marion County. Bud had a great love for the water, especially the Tygart River. He was a member of the Tygart Valley Water Ski Club, worked in water rescue and recovery, and enjoyed boating, fishing and the many friends he made on the river.

Bud never met a stranger. He worked for many years repairing docks and building retaining walls along the river. In addition, he enjoyed woodworking and welding. He was always ready to help family and friends with a building project. He most enjoyed hunting and living in the West Virginia woods and country. He enjoyed working on the computer and listening to country music.

He is survived by three children, Harold Edward Warnick, Michael Warnick and Joey Warnick; several grandchildren, including Steven Warnick and his wife Ester and his children of Bremerton, Wash.; many other great-grandchildren; his brother, Harley Warnick and his wife Linda of Four States; his sisters, Sadie Lillian Allan of Barrackville, Catherine Lacy Rapp and her husband Dale of Columbus, Ohio, Pauline Michaels of Mount Solon, Va., Wilma Marks of Marysville, Ohio, and Rosetta Workman and her husband Bill of Fairmont; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

In addition to his parents, Harold was preceded in death by his daughter, Pammy Warnick.

In keeping with the wishes of the deceased, his body was donated to the Human Gift Registry at West Virginia University. A memorial and military service will be announced at a later date. The family would like to thank the staff of the Veterans Administration Medical Center and his many friends who helped care for him during his final days.

The Warnick family welcomes anyone to share a memory of Harold’s life. Memories and condolences may be sent to: Warnick Family, P.O. Box 288, Barrackville, WV 26559.
