  1. Horace Sorry for your loss. Back in the day I hung with the same group as Warren. We al had fun together. Bye Warren.

  2. Fargo ND
    My condolences go out to Warren’s daughters, grandchildren, family and friends! Warren worked for me for several years as an underground (water & sewer) Forman. He was extremely knowledgeable, a true professional in his line of work and one of the hardest working individuals I have ever known.
    He gave it his all at work and away from work, not many people could have worn his boots for a day. I learned a lot from Warren and I thank him for that. Warren may you rest in peace!

    My condolences to the family of Warren. I remember a few of those arm wrestling bouts. Though it has been quite a few years since seeing you Steve. my thoughts are with you during this time of grief and loss. for your brother…He was quite a guy…

  6. I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that the Bible reveals God’s purpose to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the graves shall hear his voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29 Revelation 21:1-4. I hope you find some comfort in this promise.
