Gene and Pat Warrington Die Hours Apart After 69-Year Marriage

A Tiffin, Ohio, couple, Gene and Pat Warrington, died eight hours apart after 69 years of marriage.

"You could have almost predicted it," son Phil told The Associated Press of the Warringtons. "They did everything in their life together. They were never apart."

Gene Warrington, 88, and his wife, Pat, 86, both were in hospice care when Gene visited his wife and held her hand a few days before their death, the AP said.

Recognizing that his wife was in critical condition, Gene Warrington willed himself to die, Phil told the AP.

"He said 'life's not going to be fun anymore,'" Phil said.

The couple wed as teenagers and had three children, seven grandchildren, and dozens of great-grandchildren.

The couple, who died Dec. 27, are among recent longtime couples to die within hours of each other.
