Reuel E. Warriner, Jr.

Reuel E. Warriner, Jr., originally of Morristown, NJ and Montrose, PA, died peacefully in his Vero
Beach, FL home on February 28th, 2018, at the age of 79. He is survived by his daughter, Nathalie
Warriner Herrman, his grandchildren, Sienna and Nick Turecamo, and his sister, Alma Warriner

Reuel was a graduate of St Marks School in Southborough, MA, and Yale University in New
Haven, CT. In his long and varied career, he served as a Naval Aviator, an engineer at Pratt and
Whitney in Hartford CT, a Gentleman Farmer in Middleburg, Virginia where he bred and raced
thoroughbreds, and established a large herd of beef cattle, an entrepreneur in Laguna Beach, CA,
and a truck driver for KLLM. After the death of his daughter, Anne Blair Warriner, in January of
1999, he purchased two Henley Sailboats, manned them singlehandedly, and loved spending time
on the ocean where he seemed to find comfort and peace.

In recent years, he has moved between his Vero Beach home and a farm that he has lovingly
restored in Lexington, Virginia, with much help from his Grandson, Nick Turecamo. The two of them
also shared a love for classic cars, and Reuel has several in the various stages of restoration,
including two muscle cars, which he loved.

He was an avid gardener and a great cook. He loved to read, to interact playfully with whoever he
encountered, and to spend time in the company of his family. He was a hard worker and a curious
student of life; well-respected and well-loved. His presence and his unique way of viewing the world
will be sorely missed.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 3 PM, at the chapel at Strunk Funeral
Home in Vero Beach, FL, with another service planned for May 16th in Lexington, VA.
Arrangements are under the direction of Strunk Funeral Home and Crematory, Vero Beach.
