  11. My heartfelt condolences to Gene’s family on their sudden loss. I worked with Gene for many years in the Kempsville District and he was an immense help to me in the District Training Committee. Whenever there was a Scout function, you could count on Gene being there lending a hand wherever needed…even splitting firewood when needed. He was a hard worker “for the boys” and will be sorely missed.

  18. I am so sorry to hear about Gene. He was a special kind of person who was what Scouting stands for. There were many times when I had a problem and I knew if I called him he would help me find the right answer. My three sons all thought the world of Gene and will miss seeing him at Scouting events. We will keep him and his loved ones in our prayers.

  28. Today my heart is heavy. There are times in your life when you meet people who truly make a difference. Gene Warber was one of those people. The many knocks at my door any hour of the day or night to pick up applications or $$ for registering new Cub Scouts or leaders, or just to drop off materials on my porch in my scout box to have for new member night. Gene was a true Scouter for all, the many talks we have had and his love of the Cub Scout program truly shined through especially when he would do his rope trick that always amazed me. I will truly miss you from the bottom of my heart. I salute you Gene Warber. My heartfelt Sympathy to your family.

  29. I was my privilege to have worked as a volunteer with Gene. I can still remember his smiling face and above all – his absolute tireless dedication to the boys. He will be remembered for generations by those he served.

  30. I am sorry to learn Mr. Eugene Warber passed. The loss of a loved one is very painful. I offer my deepest sympathy during this time of sorrow. I’d also like to share scripture that may bring comfort. Acts 17:24, 25 and 28 informs us: The God that made the world and all things in it…gives to all persons life and breath and all things. For by him we have life and move and exist. Rev 4:11 reads…You are worthy Jehovah to receive glory and honor and power. Here are a few among many wonderful promises made by him to give us hope of everlasting life. Rev 21:4 tells us…he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor out cry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away. Acts 24:15 also tells us Jehovah promises a resurrection of our loved ones. We must have faith in His promises. To strengthen our faith, please also read Isaiah 33:24, Isaiah 55:11 and Isaiah 25:8.

  31. Dearest Jackie, Michael, Jesse, & Stacey;
    Our hearts are heavy and share in your sorrow at the loss of your beloved husband and father. You’ve been in our thoughts and prayers since we received the call informing us of Gene’s sudden passing. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that his pain is gone and he’s safely at home with his Savior. We regret there are so many miles between us; we are not able to come for a visit at this time. When you’re ready for a trip to Wisconsin, please let us know so we can spend time with you. Though its so difficult now to understand, one day soon you will look back and remember only the good times your family spent together and be thankful that God gave you a loving caring spouse and father. Be well and take care, All our love, Carolyn & Chip

  34. There are no words to express the sadness in my heart…. There aren’t enough words to express to my cousins and aunt how sorry I am that we lost such an amazing person.

    My uncle Gene was always soooo full of life. He always had a smile on his face and was the funniest person I know. He was happy just watching tv and eating chocolate chip cookies and drinking his Pepsi! He was one of the reasons I would want to go on family vacations because he knew how to make everyone laugh. The Judd and Warber family will never be the same for we are now missing the life of the party! I love you uncle Gene and I know no matter how much we cry and miss you, you will be watching over all of us forever! We’ll see you again one day. Until then R.I.P uncle Gene. Love you

    Love your niece,
    Julissa Judd

  35. Gene, I called you the Energizer Bunny, because you seemed to have an endless supply of energy, love, and passion for Boy Scouts. You were always there to answer questions, encourage us, and help us. Everytime I see a Tidewater BSA bumper magnet, I will think of you! I will miss you, friend! Bev

  36. Words can never truly describe what my uncle Gene represented to our family. His humor uplifted me during happy times as well as sad times. I can never forget him because someone that special will forever live in the memory of all who were lucky enough to be around such a glowing light. Although I am saddened by this tragedy and feel heart broken for all he has left behind (my beautiful aunt Jackie, three amazing cousins, and two spectacular grandchildren), there is comfort in knowing that he is now without pain.

    Uncle Gene, I’ll miss you forever and love you always.

  38. To the Warber family,

    I learned of Gene’s passing on Thursday evening via email when I got home from a scout meeting. Our pack and troop left at “zero dark thirty” Friday morning for Washington, DC and didn’t return until yesterday afternoon so I was unable to express my condolences in person and am trying to play catch up!

    Not only did Gene and I share our passion for Scouting but also I am a retired U.S. Marine Vietnam Vet that joined the Corps (Sept 1966) probably shortly after Gene enlisted. I retired in this area in 1997, met Gene shortly thereafter and shared many “sea stories” with him about the Corps and Vietnam. I will truly miss this unique fellowship that we shared!

    FYI, Gene was instrumental in our unit getting started nine years ago as he helped us with the initial start-up registration paperwork and later “robbed Peter to pay Paul” making several trips to Pipsico to equipment so that we could attend our first camping trip. Gene also attended several of our past Blue and Gold Banquets and other activities.

    Rest assured that Gene is sill as busy as I always remember him being, this time standing double–duty in Heaven as a lifetime Scouter and as one of the Marine sentries! “…If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven’s scenes; they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines!”

    May God bless Gene and the rest of the Warber family. If there is ever anything that you need you can contact the Washington’s, Pack and Troop 934 via the Tidewater Council office!

    Semper Fidelis,

    James W. “JW” Washington
    U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.)
    Committee Chairman, Pack 934 and Scoutmaster, Troop 934

  42. A brother that will be sorely missed, not just because he was a brother but because he was a fellow service member and baseball card collector. So many common interests that we talked about over the years even though we were miles apart.

  43. Jackie I watched the dvd on Gene’s life. I cried while watching it and thinking how I missed so much of Gene’s life. I always found cousin Gene very humorous and am glad we had that get together a few years back with all the cousins. Our deepest sympathy to you and the family. I know I will see Gene again in the next life and get to spend an eternity getting to know him much better. Rest in peace cousin.
