SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT WARREN. HE WAS A GOOD MAN.MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
I was so sorry to hear of Warren’s passing. I worked with Warren for many years at BNZ. Talking with him, I found out how very much he loved his wife and how proud he was of his children and grandchildren. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Warren’s passing. We were friends when we were much younger on the farms on the Ridge.
