Warren Hatcher was born February 8, 1962, in Milton, Florida, to Cecil and Brenda Hatcher. He grew up in Harold, Florida, racing hot rods, fishing, and hunting with his cousins and friends. After high school, he joined the Marines. That took him to Key West, California and Okinawa, Japan. With that experience he received top secret security clearance which afforded him the opportunity to work on telecommunications in the White House. He was given the privilege of placing the phone on the president’s desk.
He was blessed with his daughter Kassi shortly before moving to Wyoming to work for Exxon in 1988. He spent most of his career at the Dehy. He always felt so blessed to work so close to the wilderness he loved. He made many lifelong friends there and enjoyed the camaraderie and shenanigans.
It was also here that he met the love of his life, the woman who would become his trophy wife. Together they have four sons: Jed, Nate, Luke and Sam.
Most near and dear to Warren’s heart have always been God, family, hunting, and the outdoors. His love for these was apparent to everyone who was blessed enough to have known him.
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Oscar and Leoma Hatcher; maternal grandparents, J.D. and Marion Cumbie; Uncle J.C. Hatcher and Uncle Dewy Hatcher.
He is survived by his wife Laura, daughter Kassi (Tim) Lamon, sons Jedediah, Nathaniel, Lucas, Samuel and grandson Kole Lamon; as well as his parents Cecil and Brenda Hatcher, sisters Kathy (Kelley) King, Missy (Jess) Meeker and a multitude of nephews and nieces.
