July 16, 1924 - Nov. 8, 2011
Warren B. Eggart went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011, after a courageous 10-year battle with multiple cancers. Warren was born in Rathdrum, Idaho, on July 16, 1924, to Leonard and Violet Eggart. Following his graduation from Post Falls High School, Warren continued his education at North Idaho College. His education was cut short when he entered the military to serve his country in World War II. Following his military service, Warren continued his education, earning his associates degree from NIC. He married Clara Lyman in 1946 and the newlyweds moved to wherever Warren's job took them. They finally settled in 1965 in Walla Walla, where Warren dedicated over 30 years to his career with Chevron USA. Following his retirement, his remaining years were spent working for Isaacs and Associates, where his hard work was admired by all who knew him.
Warren's passions included golf, hunting, fishing and extended periods of time at the family lake home at Hauser Lake, Idaho. Countless hours were spent with his loving wife, their five children and spouses, 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Warren also loved to watch his children and grandchildren participate in their many sports and activities.
Warren's and Clara's commitment to their Christian faith was demonstrated by their involvement in the First Presbyterian Church of Walla Walla, where Warren faithfully served for many years in numerous capacities. Everyone who knew Warren knew him as a friendly, caring and compassionate person, who will be deeply missed by all.
Warren is survived by his wife, Clara; children, Kathy (Chuck) Talburt, Don (Sue) Eggart, Jeanne (Mike) Helfer, Julie (David) Narum and Jim (Julie) Eggart; 10 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; two brothers; and one sister.
