Warren was born September 14, 1943, in Omaha, NE to Kenneth and Laura (Mehrens) Gee. Warren was raised on a farm near Little Sioux, IA where the family owned Gee’s Pharmacy. He was a member of Little Sioux Church of Christ, where he was baptized as a young boy. Warren graduated from Little Sioux High School in 1961. He attended Omaha School of Business and graduated in 1963. He entered the Army in 1966 and was honorably discharged in 1968.

Warren went on to work at a Ford Motor Plant in Kansas City, MO in 1968. He was then employed at Coast to Coast Hardware Headquarters as an accountant for 220 stores across the United States.

In 1969, he met the love of his life, Gail Louise Stearns, and they were united in marriage on October 25, 1969. Warren and Gail moved to Sutton, NE and became the new owners of the Coast to Coast Hardware Store in Sutton in July of 1976, where they owned and operated the store for 35 years. They started a greenhouse in 2000. Warren also was a Dish Network Retailer for several years. He enjoyed being in business in such a wonderful and caring community.

He was a faithful and dedicated Elder/Treasurer of the Sutton Christian Church for many years and helped start the Sutton Community Church in Sutton, NE as it is today. Warren was well known for his smile and his caring personality to everyone he met.

Warren was preceded in death by his parents.

Those left to cherish his memories are his wife, Gail of Sutton, NE; daughter, Cindy & Dale Shearer of Shelton, NE; grandson, Myles Carlson of Saronville, NE; sister, Patricia & Virdus Alton of Olathe, KS; sister-in-law, Sue and Joe Coney of Houston, MO; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a huge community of friends.

All of our memories of Warren, Gail and Cindy are good ones. Warren was such a kind church leader to work with in our first ministry in Sutton. He even flew to South Dakota to attend our wedding. Warren and Gail were always there for us and oh how we wish we could be there now for Gail, Cindy and family. We send our love and please know that you will be in our prayers for the days to come. Sending you hugs across the miles.

Gail and Cindy,
I’m going to miss Warren. He was one of the “Good Ones”. He was always fair, kind, and helpful, and sometimes had a sorry to tell you. I missed Coast to Coast closing, and was glad he started selling the flower and garden plants. If you asked about some variety of tomato, etc. that you wanted, he frequently had it the next time you were in. Time to rest now...

My mother passed away on November 28th, 1996. She was in home hospice care, her passing was expected, but still very difficult for our family. My Aunt Gail and Uncle Warren were the first people I wanted to call after she passed. I tried to speak but my emotions overwhelmed me and the words just couldn’t come out. I’ll never forget Uncle Warren’s calm voice on the other end. It’s a memory that I can replay in my mind with perfect clarity. His kind and generous soul were a gift to us all. My family and I share our deepest sympathies to our sweet Aunt Gail, our cousin Cindy, and all of Uncle Warren’s family and friends. He will be missed.
