I was just a young intern in 1962 when I first came to ABC Radio at 39W. 66th St in New York. Warren was a staff director at the time and I remember he took the time to talk to and counsel a young, naive kid from Brooklyn. He was kind, funny and talented. My condolences go out to his family.

Warren was such a doting father, grandfather and great-grandfather. We remember such fun times recording "The Nevins of Cedar Grove" with Warren as director, and we loved spending time with him and his buddies such as Mary Jane Higby, Margaret Hamilton, George Ansboro, Jimmy Monks, etc. No one had a laugh like Warren and no one was kinder to or more patient with my father than he, even though my father could be difficult. We have missed seeing Warren these last three years and cherish our last get-together with him and Hughette for lunch at the Brewster Fish House. When we look up at the clear evening Cape skies, we know that one of those twinkling stars will be Warren. God keep you all, Hughette, Skelley, Rob, Laurie, Brady, and all the other grandchildren and great grandchildren.
