Warren Vosler

May 11, 1935 — October 24, 2022

Prairie Village, Kansas

Warren Frederick Vosler, age 87, of Prairie Village, Kansas, passed away Monday, October 24, 2022. Warren was born May 11, 1935, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. From his humble beginnings, he joined the Navy and served 3 years. Following his service, he attended and graduated from Iowa State University with a double degree in Civil Engineering and Building Construction. Following graduation, he accepted a position in Kansas City with Black and Veatch where he worked for 37 years. Warren met his wife of 49 years, Karen, through mutual friends and became a husband and father simultaneously. He was a servant by nature - serving God, his country, his family, Boy Scouts of America and many friends and neighbors. For many years he dedicated his time to Cherokee Christian Church serving in many roles. In his early adult years his hobby was bowling. He was a pretty serious bowler, achieving a perfect 300 game. His love of bowling continued as he led the church bowling league for many years. When his son became involved in Boy Scouts, Warren found a new love. He supported the local troop, and then became involved at the district and council level serving as Chaplain at summer camp and throughout the year. He also spent countless days and weekends serving and training scout leaders. His trips to Philmont were some of the highlights of his scouting days. His service to Boy Scouts of America was tremendous and spanned at least 20 years. He was awarded the Silver Beaver Award, one of the highest awards in BSA recognizing his exceptional character and distinguished service within his local council. Warren was the rock of his family. He was a wonderful father to Lance and Jonette; spending hours playing games, explaining things and sharing life lessons. Becoming a grandfather was extra special for him. He enjoyed the grandchildren’s early years and became a fixture at many school, sporting and musical events. Trips to Colorado and Branson with the family were fun times where many happy memories were made. As the grandchildren became young adults, he continued to be an active part of their lives and could always be counted on for good advice. Plus, he was quick witted and even though he was a man of few words, when he did chime in, he usually was on target and made us laugh. Warren is survived by his wife, Karen, daughter Jonette Killmar (Kurt), son Lance Pell (Terri) and the pride and joy of his life, his four grandchildren, Morgan, Brock, Joshua and Jena. He is also survived by his brother, Bud (Teresa) and family and many friends.
