Notes for Bruce Edwin Warnock: Bruce was born at St. Luke's Hospital, Cleveland, OH while the family lived in Lakewood, OH. His parents moved to Bay Village, OH from Lakewood in 1941 and he graduated from Bay High School in 1954. He then attended The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA and graduated in 1958 with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management. His first job was with National City Bank, Cleveland, OH, then Eaton Corporation, Cleveland, OH and finally as Director of Finance for the City of Bay Village, OH. In November 1992, he had a heart attack and retired early to live a life of social service.
He spent many hours after his retirement working with young adults and their families in their quest for higher education. Georgia Tech, his college, was the beneficiary of most of his efforts. The Georgia Tech Alumni Association recognized his efforts in 1995 by awarding him their Ramblin' Wreck Volunteer of the Year Award. These efforts took him back to Atlanta many times where in his college days he attended North Avenue Presbyterian Church, The Rev. Vernon Broyles, Pastor.
He was a long-time member of and Elder in The Presbyterian Church (USA), serving on the Session of both Bay Presbyterian Church, Bay Village, OH and John Knox Presbyterian Church, North Olmsted, OH. This was continuing a long family history of affilitiation with the Presbyterian Church dating to 1800 in the Presbyterian Church of Ireland. Bruce was also a commissioner to and member of The Presbytery of the Western Reserve, Cleveland, OH., and The Synod of the Covenant, Columbus, OH.
On 27 April 2002 he was conferred the degree of Master Mason by The Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio. On 22 November 2002 he joined the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Valley of Cleveland, and was conferred his 32nd degree, continuing the Masonic tradition of many members of this family.
His interest in family history came to a head in 1978, well after the death of both his parents and culminated in many trips overseas, the first to his homeland in Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal, Ireland. During his genealogical quests, he came across the history of the WARNOCK Family written by Calla Loree Stahlmann in 1969 and has added extensively to its information. Bruce published his own "Genealogy of William Warnock and Mary Wilson" in August, 1997. His records were duplicated and donated to many libraries, including the Clarion County Historical Society, Clarion, PA., and The Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland, OH, where they can be seen.
