I'm looking for information on Royal C. Warner. Born in Idaho, Died 1985 in Montebello California. Was probably a pastor/preacher at a Nazarene church in Southern Cal. May have had sisters Maxine, Marcella, and Vlera/Velera. Married to Helen. Parents may have been Jay Warner and Eula Roy/Ray. Jerry Barton Boyd is a son of Vlera, nephew to Royal.
Royal and his parents and 3 sisters are all listed in the census of 1930 and 1940 in Brule County, South Dakota. His parents, Jay B Warner and Eula Ray were married in Brule County on 4 Dec 1913.
There are several references to Rev. Royal Warner, First Church of the Nazarene in the Long Beach Independent and Long Beach Press Telegram.
Montebello is just East of downtown Los Angeles and about 25 miles North of Long Beach.
I searched the L.A. Times, Long beach press telegram and the Long Beach Independent for an obituary using different search terms, so unless I missed something, I just could not find any thing more than the articles mentioned above.

Reverend Warner was minister at Maywood Church of the
Nazarene from about 1950 to 1954 or 55. He conducted
my mother's funeral service. I attended that Church for
a number of years.
At one time he was a coach or supervisor at Maywood Park.
I understand that he later went to Hollydale Nazarene.
Perhaps more information available through Nazarene Church
headquarters. Maybe in Pasadena, California.
Royal warner was my uncle. I live in nampa idaho. LaVern and Vlera were my parents. My mom and Royal were btother and sister.
Hello Dennis. I posted to Ancestry sometime last March. Attended Maywood Nazarene
when Reverend Warner was there.
Never met your mother, don't know if she ever visited Maywood.
Have you any recordings of Royal's wonderful voice? Any photos?
Liked him and wife Helen. Only met their adopted son Ronald once but have his
e-mail if you wish to contact him. Don't know how close the family is.
Are you active in the Church? Nazarene or another? I'm in contact with a number of
those who were in our teen-ager group...but we are all elderly now. How the years do go.
