Warren Burgess, 86 - Travelers Rest

Warren Gilbert Burgess was born October 1, 1930, to William Raymond Burgess and Annie Josephine (Lynch) Burgess in Sanford, Maine.

Warren married the love of his life, Judith Louisa (Wibel) Burgess on July 12, 1974. Judith and her five children joined Warren and his five children and in 1976 they had another son together. Warren and Judith spent their last 22 years together in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. Warren loved reading, studying the Bible and the people of Christian Fellowship. Warren's life verse (Ps. 115:1) and his final days were a consistent testimony to his love of Jesus and desire to glorify God.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Jacqueline Spicer, Shirley Hutter, and Judy Burgess, his first wife, Dorothy Terrell, and one infant son, Christian Burgess.
