  1. I had the pleasure of working with Warren as a bank examiner. That was my first job after college and I learned so much from Warren and I think of him often.

  2. Great neighbor we will miss him moving his lawn.

  3. I use to work at jewels in elburn which is where I became friends with Warren.It breaks my heart to learn he passed away.he was so miss understood at jewels because he didn’t hear well and never really talked when he came in.but because of my hearing loss I understood him and we became friends.in talking with him he learned that I collected kerosene lamps and founds some at a second hand shop and brought them to the store and gave them to me.i will always treasure his gift to me I’m just sorry I hadn’t stopped at his house when I had gone by it. I’m gonna miss him.
