His Celebration of Life will be conducted at 2:00 on Sunday afternoon, March 27th, 2022, from the Veterans Park located at Burry Park in downtown Hartsville. He will later be interred along with his wife at Florence National Cemetery.
A native of Virginia, Mr. DeHart was born to the late Ewell Lee & Brookie Etta Rakes DeHart. Warner was a Veteran of the American Airforce and being a proud American, he retired as an officer from the Darlington County Veterans Affairs. One of his greatest accomplishments was working for 14 years with the City of Hartsville to see the completion of the Veterans Monument located at Burry Park in Hartsville. As with serving our country, Mr. DeHart was a servant of our community who unselfishly helped many throughout the years. He was an ex-commander of the American Legion Post 53, on the board for the Darlington County Historical Society, and a faithful member of St. Luke United Methodist Church.
