In 2013, he moved to Dallas to be closer to and be cared for by his daughter, Kristen. Jack was an avid golfer, mahjong and card enthusiast and established tennis player and coach. A patient, calm and loving father who enjoyed as much time as he could with his 3 children and 3 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by father Clyde and mother Mary.

Camille, Jack, & Kristen, I am saddened to learn of your father's passing. I fondly remember your father as coach and teacher at MC Elston in the late 70's. Know that he touched so many lives in a meaningful positive way as a gifted and caring educator is uniquely positioned to do. I hope he blessed your lives with love and support as I trust you did for him.

To Kristen and your entire family. I am so saddened to hear about Mr.Warner. He was an amazing teacher and had a heart of gold. A very dedicated man to his family and students that impacted more than he will ever know.

I had know idea he had been ill. I commend you Kristen for being his caretaker. I always remember you as being loving and kind and I know your dad appreciated what you have done for him. Dementia is a horrible autoimmune disease that affects way too many. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. I'm so sorry for a lose of a great mentor. May you rest in peace Mr. Warner.
