Dear Jenn, Truly appreciate your letting us know of the passing of your dad. Sincere peace and condolences. I'm sure he and Neil are swapping war stories from back in the day! AnneMarie

3 up 4 down, 4 up 3 down One weekend Warren and I took my Austen Healey out to U Mass. Warren borrowed it and in the process drove across a lawn and tore a hole in the oil pan, not good. My father and uncle came out to tow us back to Burlington, with my father´s pickup truck, using a 16 foot chain with a 10 foot steel pipe to keep us from running into the back of the truck, as long as we stayed directly behind them, for 80 miles up and down many long steep hills, not a good time. All we could see was the tail gate of the truck with reflectors on it, on my side 3 up 4 down on Warren´s side 4 up 3 down. Often later while drinking Warren would say 4 up 3 down I would say no 3 up 4 down we would laugh and argue who was right. Life with Warren no matter the experience after it you could laugh and remember it as a good time. Thanks for making a large part of my life such a good time. Photo from 2004

Warren was a great story teller and had a story along with words never heard before for every occasion. Warren will be missed by all who knew him.
