Warner H Stuart

September 9, 1934 — December 1, 2023

Warner H Stuart, born September 9, 1934 in Clarkston, Utah, peacefully passed away at the age of 89, on December 1, 2023. He was a devoted husband to Maxine Rae Stuart. A father to Sherrie Ann Barker (Darryl Barker) and Susan Alaine “Lainey” Gardner (Jeff Gardner), and a cherished grandfather to 8 grandchildren, 4 step-grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, 18 step grandchildren, and 1 step great-great grandchild.

He is preceded in death by his parents Wallace Hugh Stuart and Elzina “Ella” Stuart, and his grandson Stuart Bronson Gilbert.

Warner found immense joy in his role as a grandpa, creating fond memories by playfully spraying his grandchildren with a hose in exchange for a quarter. He used his engineering skills to bring joy to his family. He modified a soft serve ice cream machine to serve toppings in the center of a cone, hosting family reunions at his ranch in Thatcher, Idaho. He prided himself on spreading joy to his grandkids through go-cart, scooter, tractor, and four-wheeler rides. He enjoyed food and sharing it with his grandkids too-including cinnamon bears, m&ms, ice cream, burgers at Big J’s, coffee and cinnamon raisin biscuits, raisin filled cookies and he passed on his love of water fights to many of his descendants.

He was not only a loving family man but also a skilled inventor and mechanical engineer having graduated from Utah State University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. Warner’s career took him to New Jersey, Delaware, and Tennessee. Notably, he made significant contributions at Hercules, and Bryce Corporation, where he secured a patent for a printing press cylinder, showcasing his inventive spirit.

Beyond his professional achievements, Warner was passionate about education, particularly emphasizing the importance of having at least one grandchild pursue engineering as a career. His legacy lives on through the love he shared with his family, the impact of his inventive mind, and his commitment to the pursuit of knowledge, and also pure humor.

Warner left a legacy of joy and creativity and ingenuity. A man who relished playing jokes, he found solace and delight in his workshop, cultivating the land, admiring tractors, and expressing his artistic side through cartooning.

Whether bringing laughter through his playful pranks or immersing himself in the artistic green and brown painted walls of his Ranch workshop, Warner's life was a vibrant tapestry of humor and creativity. His love for farming and fascination with tractors were evident in the time he devoted to these pursuits in his childhood and retirement.

In addition to his inventive and professional side, Warner's artistic spirit flourished in the form of cartoons and drawings. His ability to find joy in both work and play left an indelible mark on those around him. May the memories of his laughter and creativity bring comfort to those mourning his loss. In the words of Warner, “I came, I did my thing, and now I am gone”. He definitely did his own thing, and we will all dearly miss him for it.
