         "Sometimes Solitude Is One Of The Most Beautiful Things On Earth" 


 Candler – During the peaceful late afternoon hours of September 24, 2023. We lost a man who was greatly loved and a friend to everyone. Jerry “Buck” Allen Warren, entered into his heavenly home in paradise.

Buck was born on February 7, 1946, to the late Ulysses Stonewall Warren and the late Daisy Ola Keith Warren. What a blessing to have been surrounded by a large family of brothers and sisters and to be able to share heart-touching memories of joy and happiness of his years growing up.

Buck was known for his great love of people and his passion for the great outdoors. He was indeed a “big talker” and enjoyed engaging in lively conversations with everyone. His days were filled with excitement as Buck explored the mountains surrounding his home. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and farmer, always seeking new adventures to connect with nature. Buck's trusty tractor was his faithful companion and he took great pride in keeping it washed and waxed and shining bright!

Buck had been employed with American Enka Corporation / BASF in Candler for several dedicated years where he contributed his skills and expertise in the textile industry. He had also worked in the vineyards at The Biltmore in Asheville.

A special day in Buck’s life was when he, his loving wife, and his parents embarked on a spiritual journey together. They were all baptized in the serene river waters at Stoney Fork Baptist Church in Candler. This was a life-changing experience that brought them all closer as a family and strengthened their faith.

Buck’s greatest joy was sitting on his porch, gazing at the majestic mountains that surrounded his home in Candler. As he watched the sunset behind the mountain peaks, he always felt a deep sense of peace and contentment. Buck’s love for people, nature, his precious family, and the simple pleasures of life serves as a reminder to cherish every moment and find joy in the world around us. Buck will be forever missed.

In addition to his parents, Buck is preceded in death by his wife, Janice Marie Smith Warren; his brothers and sisters, Charles, Frank, Larry, Johnny, Helen, Lillian, June, and Ruth.

Left to cherish Buck’s memory are his daughter, Kelly Kilpatrick, and her husband, Derwin; his granddaughter, Alexis Price, and her husband, Conner; a brother, Robert Warren; a brother-in-law, James Sherlin and a sister-in-law, Eloiese Warren. Also, his special little dogs, "Honey" and "Dallas".

To honor the request of Buck, no formal funeral services will be held.

Memorials in Buck's memory can be made to, St. Jude Children's Hospital, 2101 Rexford Rd. #165W, Charlotte, NC, 28211.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Warren family.
