Born Oct. 28, 1927, in Pulaski County, he was the son of the late George Everett and Geneva Isabel Vankirk Warfield. On May 7, 1978, at the Logansport Baptist Temple, he was married to Vera Louise Cook Brown, who survives.

A veteran of the U.S. Army, Bob stood guard for the Nuremberg trials following World War II.

For 26 1/2 years, Bob was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service. In the 1960’s, he worked for City Bus. From 1948 to 1955, he worked for the Studebaker Association.

Bob was a member of New Beginnings Baptist Church and the American Legion Post 60. In earlier years, he had served as a Boy Scout leader. Bob enjoyed camping and belonged to the Corn Poppers Club. An avid reader, Bob also loved to travel. He participated in several bowling tournaments and his home was filled with trophies galore. He was very interested in genealogy. Always one to keep the faith, he was a die-hard Cubs fan.

Surviving with his wife are two brothers, Roy Everett Warfield of Arizona and William Joseph Warfield of Alexandria; grandson, Jason Brown of Delphi; cousin, Israel (Betty) Azyros of Lumbar, Ill.; and several extended family members.

He was preceded in death by two sisters, Violet Jane Coby and Dorothy Elizabeth Emmons.
