Warren and I were both coworkers and friends for thirty years. What I will remember most about him is although we were career mechanics and fire fighters, he instilled into me we were first volunteers. He preached parity to me and that we were on the same level as the volunteers. I will always adire him for that and will always look at volunteers as professionals. I will always remember the Times we spent together and will remember him until we are reunited...
