Delaware, Ohio
Formerly of Worthington, Ohio

John G. “Jack” Warner, age 86, of Delaware passed away Monday June, 12, 2017. He was born June 17, 1930 in New York, NY to the late Lalla Ridley (Jones) and John G. E. Warner.

Jack proudly served his country in the US Navy as a Seabee.  He attended Glassboro State Teachers College where he met his future bride, Merle “Micki” Fulton.  They married in 1952 and shared a 57 year life journey until Micki passed away in 2010.  He adored her and was extremely proud of his marriage, children and grandchildren, often speaking of their many accomplishments.  Jack made family his top priority and made it a point to attend as many of his kids’ events as he could, given that he travelled often for his work.

Jack was Director of Marketing for Nationwide Insurance for over 25 years.  In 2007, Jack and Micki moved from Worthington to Delaware.  He was a member of Old Stone Presbyterian Church.

Jack was an outstanding football and baseball player and enjoyed coaching his kids’ teams.  He also umpired baseball and enjoyed golf and tennis. He was active as well in the Senior Centers in both Worthington and Delaware, and was a proud 32nd Degree Mason and a member of Hiram Lodge.

Jack will be remembered for his devotion to, and always making time for, his family.  He is survived by his children Donna Warner of Glendale Heights, IL, Derek Warner of Columbus and Doug (Chris) Warner of Delaware and four grandchildren, Deonna Sekikawa and Garrett, Brad and Tina Warner.

A celebration of Jack’s life will be held Friday, June 16, 2017 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM, services to follow at 6:30 PM at Old Stone Presbyterian Church, 41 Hodges Rd., Delaware, OH, 43015, with Greg Menssen officiating. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, Delaware.

  • John G. Warner was an amazing man! We both worked for Jack at some point in our lives and we were his friends. Jack loved his family and his friends. When you became his friend, it was for life. We will miss him. We will pray for his family as they deal with his loss. Jack would not want you to be sad for too long. He would want you to rejoice that he was finally with his best friend, his dear Micki.

  • Deepest of condolences. My thoughts are with the family. May Jack Rest In Peace and may his memory be alive.

  • Jack will be missed by those who knew him and had a chance to work with him.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
    Jack’s energy and strong personality were special, as were his values and beliefs. I had several opportunities to work with Jack and I could always count on hist best shot – which often was right on the mark.
    I know he will Rest In Peace with his beloved wife.

  • If you rearrange the letters of Earth, It becomes Heart. So even if someone we love is no longer on earth with us. We know that person will always be in our HEART. Love you Dad, know you are with Mom.
