  • Uncle Warren was such a wonderful gentleman. I always enjoyed his visits to Pennsylvania to see his sister Gloria (my mom). I was captivated when he told of his travels around the country and his baseball knowledge made an impression on me as a young man. Most impressive of all, was his kind and gentle presence. Cecelia and I extend our prayers and condolences to our cousins and their families.

  • Lee and Sara and family, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Thinking of you.

  • Uxley Family,
    What fond memories we have of Warren and Erma from our days as neighbors on Fortney Avenue to sharing some very special family members. We know that he is catching up with Erma, the “best looking blonde he ever saw” and is at peace. We will keep all of you in our thoughts as you go through this difficult time.

  • Warren was one of the first people I encountered when I came to work for the North Electric in 1967. He treated me like I had been on-board for years. Warren shall be missed but never forgotten. Our prayers are with the family during these times. As you pass through the gates of heaven, let those words of our Lord be spoken, “enter my true and faithful servant, of you I am well pleased. May you be received in due form!”

    I have fond memories of Warren

  • To Warren’s Family,

    I had the pleasure of working with Warren since the early 70’s in Lebanon on the NT-500 TSD installation.
    Our paths crossed many times at the Operation’s Center on PAW in Mansfield.
    He was one of the most intelligent people I ever had the opportunity to meet.
    He was always happy and had a joke or a good word. He, Charlie Geer, Don Van Dyne and some other Engineers were a lot of fun to be around.

    I am saddened to hear of his passing.
    The world needs more folks like him.

    I know he will be missed by all that ever had the pleasure of working with him and knowing him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his family at their time of sorrow.

    May God keep him and may he always rest in peace.

    I know he is in heaven because working for UTS he has already spent his time in the other place.

  • I worked with Warren a number of times at UTO. He was professional and personable. May he rest in peace. Thank you for sharing him with us.
