Sorry to learn of Warren’s passing. He was always a delight to talk to. He never missed an opportunity to acknowledge me regardless of how large the size of the meeting we were attending. Ya always felt good after a greeting from Warren!
Sympathy to all,

I don’t recall ever meeting Warren, but I was acquainted with his brother Weyland—and worked closely with him for several years at AccuRay Corp. My sincere condolences go to all the family.

I am sorry for your loss. Warren was such a humble genuine man whose impact in this life has been immense but more importantly he has influenced the eternal life of many other people by his actions and passion for Christ. What a great man.
