NEW BERLIN - Warren Stuart Genung, 86, of Norwich, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ at Wilson Hospital on July 18, 2017.
Warren was born on June 17, 1931, in New Berlin, to Earl and Irene Genung.
He was predeceased by his wife Mona who passed away on Aug. 13, 2006. They had been married for 52 years.

After graduation from photography school, he was involved in photographing weddings along with his wife, Mona.
Warren was also an avid hunter, fisherman, and skeet and trap shooter. He was active for years in the Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, Iroquois Rod and Gun Club, and Rockdale Rod and Gun Club, passionately supporting the passing on of these sports to the younger generation through promoting the sending of kids to DEC camp. He was also instrumental in organizing the conservation exhibit at the Chenango County Fair for many years.
