Funeral services for Warren Brinkerhoff of Gillette will be today (Thursday, July 5) at 10 a.m. at Mt. Pisgah Cemetery Chapel in Gillette with Ray Mapel of The Christian Motorcycle Association officiating. Warren, 39, died June 29 while doing what he enjoyed — riding his motorcycle in the Big Horn Mountains.
Interment with military honors provided by American Legion Post #42 will follow at Mount Pisgah Cemetery. Harley Davidson attire is welcomed at the Celebration Of His Life.
Warren was born Feb. 8, 1973, in Greybull to Linda Kay Ingersoll and Herbert Warren Brinkerhoff. Warren grew up and attended school in Greybull but graduated from Riverside High School in Basin. Warren served in the Wyoming Army National Guard for 14 years.
Warren married the love of his life, Kari Ann Allen, on June 8, 1991 in Basin. Together Warren and Kari raised two children, Brittani and Hagen. He worked in Worland until 2000 when he moved to Gillette. He was employed by Anadarko Petroleum, a job he loved and for which he was grateful.
Warren loved his family, hunting, and riding his Harley. He has that one thing everyone wants: He squeezed every inch out of life EVERYDAY. He had that rebel side to him that everyone admired but never could seem to find.
Warren is survived by his loving wife of 21 years Kari; son, Hagen Brinkerhoff; daughter, Brittani (Garth Phelps) Brinkerhoff of Gillette; mother, Kay (Bob) Deaver, and son Camron, of Gillette; five brothers and sisters, Hope Brinkerhoff of Gillette, Guy (Shannon) Brinkerhoff of Worland; Danny Brinkerhoff and Autumn Brinkerhoff of Worland; Phillip (Stormy) Brinkerhoff of Gillette; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws all of whom he loved dearly.
Warren is preceded in death by his father Herb and his grandparents.
