Warren, Mike Kilpatrick and I were close friends in high school. Mike moved away for school but Warren and I continued a close friendship for the years afterwards. Warren and I bagged groceries at the Setzers store on University at beach blvd during college at JU. We would often trade many humorous memories of those times at Setzers. As years passed, I too tried to stay in touch with Warren. Sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I failed. Was difficult to follow him as he moved continuously within the US and other parts unknown. He was always smiling and a friend. I too will miss that big grin and the stories of times past as only he could recount. R.I.P. Warren.

To Warren and his entire family...

I do wish we could have had the reunion just a bit earlier so that Warren could have participated and enjoyed just maybe our last as a '58 class. You, Warren along with others will be remembered...

I attended the memorial service for Warren last Thursday along with several other classmates.  It was a sweet service with many loving and humorous memories that were shared by his children and members of his church, Bible Study groups and friends, and the absolute funniest was told by Keith Klempt.  For many years Warren had been giving back to his God, church, community and nation in generous and quiet ways.  It was so good to hear that Warren had a relationship with Jesus Christ and at his death, went immediately into His presence and is suffering no more.  Rest in the loving arms of Jesus, Warren.
