Warren was a funny and generous dad to his children. He was proud of them all and all of their accomplishments. He was blessed to see the birth of his two great grandchildren this past year.

He enjoyed pontoon boating with family, friends, and everyone’s dogs. Both Warren and Lois were very involved in the community association. Warren loved helping friends and neighbors get their boats in and out of the water and helping them with their landscaping. Warren loved nature and was a lover of all animals, but most especially dogs. His two dogs, Duffy and Hannah, were more like children to him than pets.
