Our beloved Warren Farmer — husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather — traveled the road of life for 83 years and reached the highway to heaven and his final destination on March 19, 2018. Warren leaves behind his wife Darla of 59 years; their three children, Robert, David married to DeVee and Kathy Iddins married to Bobby; six grandchildren, Denita married to Marty, Chase and Paige Farmer, Teagen, Shaina and Hanna Nielsen, and great-grandchildren Chase and Charlee Rayner.
Warren was born and raised at Bush Point on Whidbey Island where his family were the original settlers of this part of South Whidbey. While growing up at Bush Point, Warren spent his youth fishing and working at the two fishing resorts located at Bush Point at the time. Following high school, Warren joined the Navy and spent two years active duty and four years in the Naval Reserves where he honorably served his country during the Korean War. Following his service in the Navy, Warren returned to Bush Point where he married Darla Ulskey on Dec. 6, 1958, and they began their family and Warren’s career in real estate.
Warren was an avid fisherman and loved spending time with family and friends. Warren loved entertaining friends and family either fishing or spending time at their beach home on Bush Point. Warren loved to travel, and he and Darla enjoyed cruising and vacationing with family and friends.
Warren loved people and was never shy to lend a helping hand or a loving friendly smile. His robust laugh was contagious and will be missed by all that he touched, and he will be missed but never forgotten
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, at the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club. The family requests that donations, in lieu of flowers be made to the South Whidbey Historical Museum.
