Warren Paul Patzer

December 23, 1936 - March 4, 2019

Warren Patzer, 82, of Batavia passed away March 4, 2019, at Central Dupage Hospital in Winfield.  Warren was born December 23, 1936, in Batavia the son of Joseph and Mabel Patzer. 

Warren was employed by All Steel in Aurora for many years until his retirement at the age of 55.  He graduated from Batavia High School class of 1955.  He kept in touch with his many classmates and was the kind of guy who was invested in people.  Appropriate or not Warren always had a joke ready to lighten the mood or create a laugh with everyone he met.  Warren had an infectious personality with a sweet laid back demeaner.  He will be remembered for his almost daily walks around the westside of Batavia.  The guy with the crooked cane and later the guy with the scooter disobeying traffic laws.  He made his almost daily trips to Panera Bread, the public library, or just to find a great conversation with his friends.  Warren loved to read and during his early years he loved to travel with is family and the popup trailer.  Warren has been a big part of his grandchildren’s and great grandchildren’s lives which he dearly loved.   

He is survived by his children Scott (Tami) Patzer of Denver, CO and Sherri (Corey) Clark of Batavia; four grandchildren, Morgan (David Arrington) Villapando, Jarret Clark, Katy and Ian Patzer; three great-grandchildren Maliah and Lilyana Villapando and Kobe Arrington; and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his siblings, Hazel Hawse, Raymond Patzer, Arlene Wagner, Melvin Patzer, and Ron Patzer; and his former wife and friend Mary Pavlak
