  1. Wow,will this man be missed.I have to share this memory….I came to pick up Warren for his eye dr appointment’s and one day after getting half way down the hall he turns around to go back home.I asked him where he was going,ignoring me ,he walks back in the house and says,”I didn’t say good bye to Rita.”I clearly remember him already saying good bye.I told her good bye with him.He needed to do it again.He loved her so much,as well as his whole family.And then,On the way home from the dr., he always translated the names of the Hispanic street names.
    Grandad,thank you for all the laughs and always making me feel like part of the family.We love you!!See you again one day.

    We’ll always remember Uncle Warren in his military baseball cap sitting down at the Dana Point Harbor with Aunt Sadie and my mom. Dan and I remember how much he loved a party with family and dancing with Aunt Rita. They had some fancy moves!! He had the best stories, and we will always remember him reminiscing about his World War II days. His love for family and this country were always evident. I remember the wall in his Dana Point home that was devoted just to family pictures. Dan and I were excited to see our pictures had made it!!

    Uncle Warren, you will be missed, but thank you for all of the memories that you left for family and friends!! May you rest in peace with all who have gone before you. Our prayers for strength and comfort during this time of loss go out to all of Uncle Warren’s family.

    Donna, Dan, and Matthew
