Condolence & Memory Journal

I grew up with Warren and Pat and Kara and Mike, the nicest family you could want to know. Warren had a great sense of humor, and he and Pat were wonderful friends to my parents. He was such an upstanding member of the Syracuse community, a great example for all of us kids of someone who combined a successful career with helping others through things like Junior Achievement and the Boy Scouts. He was a shining example of his generation, a hardworking family man who was a loving husband and raised great kids.
