Former Kenai resident Warren C. Call died Aug. 31, 2000, in Scottsdale, Ariz., after losing a long battle with lung cancer. He was 65.
Private services for the family were held in Scottsdale.
He lived most of his life in Alaska where he worked in the oil industry in Cook Inlet. He retired in 1992 and began taking courses in anthropology at the University of Alaska Anchorage, where he made several dear friends. In 1998, he was selected from many applicants across the nation to participate in an archaeological dig in South Africa, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Shortly thereafter he moved to the Phoenix area to continue his anthropological studies at Arizona State University.
He enjoyed numerous driving trips across the country, visiting friends and family along the way.
"Warren was a loving husband and father," his family said.
He is survived by his mother, Evelyn York, of Cornish, Maine; son, Scott Call and wife, Sandy, of Weston, Ore.; son Tim Call and wife, Janie, of Ridgefield, Wash.; daughter Lori Jones and husband, Jeff, of Anchorage; and 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
