Warrent McClintock, 96 - April 14, 2015

Warren Grant McClintock, 96, of North Platte, formerly of Grainton, passed away surrounded by his family on Tuesday, April 14, at Great Plains Health in North Platte.
Services took place on Saturday, April 18, at Grace Lutheran Church in Sutherland with the Rev. Erin Dunlavy officiating. Burial was at the Morning View Cemetery at Wallace.
McClintock was born March 10, 1919, to W. Grant and Rose B. (Brownlee) McClintock on the family homestead south of Grainton. He attended country school in his early years then went to school in Grainton, riding his horses, Red and Echo, where he graduated in 1936.
On Feb. 22, 1947, he was united in marriage to Lavona Mae Hawkinson at Torrington, WY. To this union, four children were born.
He and his family lived and worked on the family farm south of Grainton until 1994 when they moved to North Platte.
McClintock’s wife of nearly 58 years passed away on Sept. 8, 2004.
On March 1, 2008, he married LaVon “Bonnie” Fattig at Sutherland. The couple enjoyed many trips and cruises together while they were married and lived a full and happy life, according to family members.
He had served on several boards during his lifetime including the Wallace Coop Fertilizer Board and 16 years on the Grainton School Board. He also served on the Board of Directors of Farmers State Bank for 38 years where he was a lifetime member.
McClintock loved farming and the smell of “fresh dirt” in the spring, family said. In 1987, while still operating the family farm, he received the 100-year Ak-Sar-Ben Pioneer Farm Family Award, and at this time, he and his father were the only two generations that had owned and operated the farm. He maintained the status as a second generation owner/operator of the family farm up until his death.
He was a patient, kind and loving husband, dad and grandpa, touching the lives of so many people with his generosity and kindness, the family stated.
McClintock was preceded in death by: his first wife, Lavona; his parents, Grant and Rose; two brothers—David and George McClintock; his sister, Lillian Davisson; a granddaughter, Michelle; a great-grandson, Dalton.
