Pastor Bryan Plyler will officiate. The family will receive friends immediately following the service at the High School. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The River Church (Camden, SC) for a scholarship fund in Robert’s name.
Robert passed away Tuesday, April 4, 2017 after an extended illness. He was born in Columbia, SC, the son of Robert Todd Warnock and Kelly Milliron Warnock. Robert graduated in 2016, having enjoyed a career as a varsity football, wrestling and track athlete throughout high school. Robert loved target shooting, video games and computers, but loved more the time he spent with his “four other brothers”, Josiah Altieri, Kobe Little, Spencer Keys and Jackson Smyrl. The family extends a debt of gratitude to these four for their unwavering love and support during Robert’s extended illness.
Robert may have seemed like a giant, but it is his gentle spirit, kindness, and compassion for others for which he is best remembered. Many have referred to him as a “Gentle Giant” serving with his church, school, and community. He is remembered as someone who never met a stranger and would offer anything he had to someone in need. His faithful companion of 2 years, “Cheeto”, was a rescue from the local animal shelter and rarely left his side.
Robert is survived by his parents, Robert Todd Warnock and Kelly Milliron Warnock of Camden, SC; sister, Lauren Warnock Henderson (Trent) and their son, Jude, of Camden, SC; brother William “Will” Christopher Scott Warnock of Camden, SC maternal grandparents, William E. (“Bill”) Milliron (Sherrill) of Benzonia, Michigan and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Robert was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Robert Franklin Warnock and Mary Cronan Warnock and his maternal grandmother Mary Douglass Milliron.
