WARNER, Eric M., age 67, of Annapolis, Maryland, died of cancer on October 24, 2019, at his home with his beloved wife, Linda Cohen, beside him. He was predeceased by his mother, Lila Schreiber; father, Joseph Warner; and stepmother, Leah Robinson. His sister, Sheryl Warner, of Richmond, Virginia, survives Eric; as do other family members who greatly enjoyed his intelligence and wit. After graduating from Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond, Virginia, Eric moved to Los Angeles, California, where he earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from The University of Southern California, and a law degree from Southwestern Law School. He funded his education by working in the television industry. Eric was a mailroom clerk, film editor, joke writer and ultimately, a scriptwriter. He wrote documentaries, talk shows, variety shows and game shows. He told many amusing stories of his years working on Jokers Wild, Tic-Tac-Dough and Win, Lose or Draw, a Burt Reynolds production. In 1996, Eric left California behind and moved back to the East Coast to reconnect with his high school friend, Linda Cohen. The couple shared 25 wonderful years together. Eric enjoyed travel and ventured to many glorious places around the world, but the view he most treasured was looking out over Spa Creek from his own balcony. Eric was not one for gourmet food or formal dining. He preferred a good hamburger, medium-well, with two slices of tomato and lots of extra mayonnaise. It is an understatement to say Eric was an unpretentious guy, but he was a guy who will be deeply missed.
