A very special human being with a depth of knowledge of the arts. A man of taste and elegance. May his soul soar. I shall never forget him. And what a cook! Gourmet. And humor and charm too. So many of us wish we could still talk with you. Safe, safe journey now, Warren. Love.

I just found out that Warren passed, and it breaks my heart. I will always remember him singing Zerlina's aria to me, from Don Giovanni. I am going to miss that smile, and that warm hug. He truly was such a love of a person.

I met Warren in the 60's, when he would visit my grandparents in upstate NY. My favorite memory is of him walking up the mountain behind their house in his Fisherman sweater, jeans and knee high boots, singing. I was a young child, very impressionable and he seemed larger than life.

It would have been in the fall of 1980, and Warren came in to "The Saloon" across from Lincoln Center. I was his waitress. I had made designs on my suspenders. Warren was very kind, and told me my suspenders were beautiful. My bosses did not think so. I had to take them off, but the actor I recognized from "Another World" made me feel alright about it. Thanks, Warren...for your talent, and your kindness. Rest in Peace. Blessings! to your entire family.
