Our beloved son, Jeffrey “Jeff” Warrington, passed away peacefully Nov. 25, 2019, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.
Jeff was born in Napa, Calif., on Aug. 8, 1979. After high school Jeff was accepted at the prestigious art center, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where he graduated with honors in graphic design. Jeff remained in Los Angeles for the rest of his life and worked on many high-end graphic design projects.
Despite living in L.A. and his very busy schedule, Jeff always put family and friends first and we always looked forward to his visits to Weaverville. Jeff especially liked the old fashioned Fourth of July parade and festivities and our beautiful Trinity County scenery. He was an accomplished photographer, writer and designer and was passionate about his wide range of projects.
Jeff also enjoyed traveling to such wide-ranging locations as Aruba, Mexico, Cannes (France), New York City, the Southern United States and a recent visit to Marfa, Texas. He was generous and kind and always kept a positive mindset even after his diagnosis five years ago.
He leaves behind his father Tom Warrington and stepmom Erin of Weaverville, mother Helma Haines of Napa; sister Melissa Triplett (Trey) of New Orleans, stepbrother Ryan Troughton (Lisa) and three nephews; grandmother Oma of Napa and many relatives. He also leaves behind longtime friend and companion Melissa Manning and his beloved dog Pauly and many friends in Los Angeles.
Contributions on Jeff’s behalf can be made to the Tug McGraw Foundation in Yountville, Calif. There will be a celebration of Jeff’s life in Napa in the near future.
