A Visitation will be held in Perry at Watson-Hunt Funeral Home on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. Personal protection equipment is recommended.

Gerald was born on June 1, 1946, to the late Paul and Bernice Warrell. He grew up in the Wichita, Kansas, area and worked on the family farm with his dad and siblings. After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Air Force. Soon thereafter, he married the love of his life, Karrie Hirsch. As they embarked on their marriage, little did they know about the adventures that were in store for them. Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Gerald was in the Air Force Reserves and eventually, the Air National Guard. He accepted a job with Civil Service and was stationed at Charleston Air Force Base. After a few years, Gerald was transferred to Civil Service at Robins Air Force Base, where the couple bought a home and would live the remainder of their lives together. Gerald was an Equipment Specialist and, after working his way to Electronics, he was gradually promoted to Aviation Electronics and then Electronics Warfare. He retired after working over 40 years with them. Throughout their married life, the couple enjoyed camping and traveled extensively. Gerald enjoyed race cars and dirt-track racing – it was his passion. He loved fishing and was always on the lookout for the next best “fishing hole.” He was preceded in death by his parents; his loving and devoted wife of 46 ½ years, Karrie Hirsch; and his sister, Katherine Byrum. Left to cherish the memories they made with Gerald are his loving and devoted daughters, JaNette Warrell of Warner Robins, and Toniese Warrell Craft (David) of Fayetteville; his son, Steven Warrell; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; his brother, Jan Warrell (Pamela); and several nieces and nephews. Condolences for the family may be left in the online guestbook at www.watsonhunt.com. Watson-Hunt Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements in Georgia. Downing and Lehay Mortuary are handling the burial in Kansas.
