Warren Richard Aylsworth, 62, of Maple City, passed away Feb. 25, 2017 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Warren was born on Nov. 12, 1954 in Flat Rock to Glenn Aylsworth and Juanita Shanks.
On Oct. 31, 1991 Warren married the love of his life, Janet Marie Schopieray.
Warren was an avid deer and mushroom hunter. He owned and operated his own deer processing company.
In his spare time he loved to invent new recipes and was a wonderful cook. He also liked to build things and take care of his old Chevy truck, which was his favorite toy.
Warren had a great sense of humor and could brighten anyone's day. He was the best ghost story teller around a camp fire and would most honestly say that deer season was probably his favorite holiday. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Warren is survived by his wife, Janet; his daughter, Danielle (Zach) Mullen; son, Warren (Whitney) Aylsworth; grandchildren, Warren III, Grant, Charlotte and Chief; brother, Tom Aylsworth; as well as his mother, father and stepmother, Jan.
Warren was preceded in death by his siblings, Gladys Hentchel and Greg Aylsworth.
