Jerry Lee Warner, of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away March 5, 2020, at home, surrounded by his wife and children.

Jerry was born on May 5, 1945, to Melvin Warner and Mabel Hickox Warner, of Mitchell, Nebraska. He grew up on a farm in the area, and attended school at Mitchell Public Schools, graduating in 1963. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, earning a BS in Vocational Agriculture in 1968. Jerry married Barbara Koos on June 3, 1967, in Assumption, Nebraska. They raised a family of three in Nebraska, California, Kansas, New York, and Ohio, before finally settling in Omaha, Nebraska. He worked for Precision Industries/DXP for 25 years, until he retired.

Even though Jerry only taught school for a few years, he was a natural educator and had a passion for sharing information and experiences, whether it was instructing new gardeners as a Master Gardener, coaching his children and grandchildren, or mentoring other winemakers. He was an outdoorsman from a very young age, and enjoyed fishing, hunting, and camping. Jerry took great pride in his work, and often took on DIY projects. He was a definitive jack of all trades. Although life took a different turn, Jerry always wanted to return to farming. Every summer his flower and vegetable gardens were amazing, and in his later years, he was recognized as a Master Gardener.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Barbara, his daughter Saille Kristine Warner Norton and her husband Scott, of Washougal, Washington, his daughter Kate Dietrich and husband Gary, of Omaha, son Jeremy Warner and wife Jennifer, of Reno, Nevada, and six grandchildren, Brennan and Nate Hron, Sydney Dietrich, Connor, Finn, and Maeve Norton, and his dog, Sam.  The family asks in lieu of flowers to send memorials to St. James Catholic Church Gardening Group and the Knights of Columbus.
