OBITUARY - WILLIAM MATTHEWS WARIN

William M. WARIN was born on April 1, 1944 in Creston, Iowa, the second son to Emmet and Pearl J. WARIN. Bill, a beloved son, husband, father and grandfather died unexpectedly on April 4, 2000 at his home in Mesa, Arizona.

Bill grew up in Mount Ayr, Iowa, and graduated from Mount Ayr Community high school in 1962. He attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska for two years and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in business administration. At Iowa, he also received his Juris Doctor degree and practiced law in both Iowa and Arizona. He had a general law practice in Iowa but specialized in estate planning once he opened his Arizona practice. He was a member of many professional organizations, the Iowa Bar Association, the State Bar of Arizona and was even a guest on a local radio talk show as an expert on the subject of estate planning.

He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Ann WATSON of Diagonal, Iowa on August 27, 1966, at Immaculate Conception Church in Maloy, Iowa. After law school in Iowa City, they made their home in Mount Ayr, where Bill went into practice with his father Emmet WARIN. Bill and Ann were blessed with three daughters, and, in 1981, he and his family moved to Mesa, Arizona.

In his free time, he enjoyed golfing, reading and spending time with his family. He was a grandfather of two and was the designated pancake maker for them when they would stay overnight.

He is survived by his wife Ann WARIN; daughters and sons-in-law, Stephanie and Brad BUTLER of Scottsdale, Arizona, Amy and Scott HANEY of Mesa, Arizona and Jennifer and T. J. CASEY of Mesa; two grandchildren; his mother Pearl J. WARIN; and brother Mike WARIN.

Bill loved his family dearly, and even after being in Arizona for 18 years, still had unbreakable ties to Iowa. All who knew him in Iowa, as well as in Arizona, will remember his strong work ethic, integrity and honesty. He was a highly-respected man and will be gravely missed.

Preceding Bill in death were his father Emmet WARIN and his father-in-law Elbert M. WATSON.

Services were held on Monday, April 10, 2000 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Mount Ayr with Father Thomas DOOLEY and Father Mark REASONER officiating. Lectors were Michelle WARIN and Paul MILLER. Nancy SACKETT and Judy CUNNING provided music. Casket bearers were his three sons-in-law, Scott HANEY, Dr. Bradley BUTLER, T. J. CASEY, and three nephews, Michael R. WARIN, Joe WARIN and Jim TAYLOR. Honorary pallbearers were Dr. Collus LAWHEAD, Dick WEEHLER, Dan CUNNING and Craig ELLIOTT.

Bill was laid to rest in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Mount Ayr.

Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr was in charge of the arrangements.
