Warnock, Stephen

April 6, 1925 — March 14, 2014

Stephen Warnock died on Friday, March 14, 2014, in Davis. Steve was born in Savanna Illinois to Glenn and Elizabeth Warnock, the second of five boys.

Growing up, he lived in Mt. Carroll, Ill., until he joined the Navy at the age of 18. In 1947, he married Amelia Grindean and the couple moved to Lafayette, Ind., where he received his bachelor’s degree in agronomy and plant pathology from Purdue University. He then attended the University of Wisconsin where he obtained both his master’s degree and Ph.D.

After completing his education, Steve and the family moved to Dayton, Wash., where Steve began his lifelong career in plant research with the Green Giant Company. Several years later, he made a career move to Campbell Soup Company, wit which he remained until his retirement, 33 years later. The move to Campbell Soup brought the Warnock family to Davis for a short period, then to Trujillo, Peru, for three years, finally bringing them back to Davis, at which time Steve was promoted to plant manager of Campbell’s research facility in Davis.

Upon retirement, Steve continued his work in research, operating his own consulting firm for the next 12 years. He also wrote a book itled, “Tell Me a Story When You Were Little,” which he self-published, dedicating it to his nine grandchildren who often asked him to tell stories about his life as a boy in Illinois.

Stephen is survived by his wife Amelia; children Susan (husband David), Millicent, Stephen (wife Virginia), Luanne, Greg (wife Julie) and Becky (husband Bill); and grandchildren Debi, Mike, June, Liam, Jennifer, Elisabeth, Stephanie, Erin and Kendall.

A memorial service for Stephen will begin at 11 a.m. Monday, March 24, am at St. James Catholic Church, 1275 B St. in Davis. In lieu of flowers, the family suggest The Independence Fund as a recipient of donations made in memory of Stephen.
