2013 Obit: Published in the Salt Lake Tribune on November 3, 2013 (src: Find A Grave)

Warren passed away on October 29, 2013 at Mountain West Hospital in Tooele, Utah.

He was born June 15, 1926 in Roanoke, Virginia to James Epperley and Artie Jacobs.

He married Thelma (Cookie) Morrell on April 15, 1950 at St. Marguerite's Catholic Church in Tooele. This union produced three sons: Wayne, Tom Jr., and Paul.

Warren served his country proudly in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He retired from the Army in 1966 after twenty-two years of service. He received many medals and honors for his military service. Tom worked at Tooele Army Depot for five years before wartime injuries forced him into retirement.

He was a convert to the Catholic faith and served and loved his church faithfully. He was past President of St. Marguerite's Mens Club, a church usher, a member of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, and past Grandknight of St. Marguerite's Council.

He was past Commander of both the VFW and DAV chapters in Tooele and was very active in both organizations for many years.

Tom and Cookie spent the last twenty winter years at their Yuma, Arizona home, where they had many friends and happy memories. Tom was an avid hunter and fisherman and, with our friends from Happy Valley, spent countless years with our families engaging in camping and the great outdoors.

Tom is survived by Cookie, his loving wife of sixty-three years; his sons, Rev. Wayne T. Epperley, CSSp; Tom Jr. (June), Tooele; and Paul (Jen), Dallas, Texas; grandson, Adam Epperley; granddaughter,,Maria (Andrew) Roberts; great-grandson, Lestat; great-granddaughter, Maya; sister, Kaky Shirley, Round Rock, Texas; and numerous nieces and nephews, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law whom he loved very dearly, and who loved him in return.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2013 at St. Marguerite's Catholic Church, Tooele, Utah, where a Funeral Mass will be offered at 11:00 a.m. A reception will follow in the church hall.
As per Tom's request, his body was cremated and his ashes will be interred at a later date in the Tooele City Cemetery.
