Ted Jesse Warner, “Teddy,” 63 years of age, passed into his mother’s arms on her birthday, Sunday, March 28, 2021.
Teddy was born on February 16, 1958 in Ogden, Utah to Rex Eugene Warner and the late Doris Jill Wilson. He was the middle of three children. Teddy grew up in North Ogden, Utah. In his younger years, Teddy enjoyed skiing, ski racing, water skiing, and spending as much time as possible in the mountains and on the ski hill. Teddy earned the rank of Eagle Scout while a member of Troop 202 in Ogden, which helped him to love, enjoy and respect the outdoors.
He married Dalene Price in 1976 and two children were born from this union, Ty Jesse Warner and Val Duane Warner.
Ted moved into the Teton Basin in the 80s, bringing with him a knowledge of carpentry and construction and was very well-experienced with his trade.
Working for others didn’t give him the freedom to expand his spirit so he created his own business known today as Bearwood Construction. He loved and took high pride in what he did. He had many satisfied clients that all turned into long-time friends. Teddy loved every minute spent with his family and friends. Teddy was a people person and was always wearing a smile. He would do anything for anyone and was always thinking of others first. He enjoyed his time with “Buzz” flying his airplane and the laughs he shared after work with his friends, the panning gold trips up into Salmon and nearby mountains with his camper, and the time he shot a duck 200 yards away on water. Teddy loved life and lived it to the fullest. There was not a day go by that he was not up and gone to work or out to visit.
He started attending the Cowboy Church and was feeling content with the Spirit of the Lord when his health started to fail him. He continued to fight with all he had and was still very eager to go explore his world and visit his people.
There was one visit he was sure to make complete before the sunset and that was to visit his hound dog “Duke.” We will all miss this beautiful man in our own way.
Teddy leaves behind his cherished wife Claudia, his father Rex Warner, his brother Mark Warner (Joyce) and his sister Barbara Jennifer Warner, Teddy’s two boys Ty and Val (Annie) and five grandchildren, two stepdaughters Aunna and Kayla (Ben), two step-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Teddy’s celebration of life picnic will be held during the warmer months, date and place to be determined. Teddy will take one last flight over the Rocky Mountains, the one place he loved and called his home. Friends and family always welcome.
