Through the many years of knowing Warren I truly enjoyed seeing him each time he came into the office. He always took time to catch up with me whether he came in or called on the phone. Beginning over a year ago we had touched base by telephone. I will miss his positive character, belief in me and genuine manner. I think of him often. I am thankful to have known him and to have had the opportunity to develop a further friendship outside of business.

Condolences to the family and specifically Tom.

Your father will be missed. What a pleasure over the years it was to see him at the conventions, his booth was always a popular gathering point. Even better would be when he would swing by my office just to check on me and my family and we would go to lunch.

A class act at all times in my experience.

I have been in the chiropractic profession for over 38 years being active in every state organization from the MSCA to the MAC. I looked forward to greeting Warren at our conventions. He was always friendly, asking how I was and my family as well. Talkative, friendly and engaged. He was a kind man, a pillar in the chiropractic profession for many years. I will miss seeing him at his vending area smiling and greeting all of his many friends, you could tell that this was his extended family and we appreciated him as well.

I am so sorry to hear that Warren has passed. I am glad he lived a long life and he will be missed by many in the chiropractic community. I will always remember his big smile and his teasing quips. My condolences to his children and grandchildren.

Warren was simply a class act - what you saw was what you got and if he was your friend, he was true blue to the core. We first met Warren in 1976 when we were preparing to open our Chiropractic practice in Allegan. He stopped by to meet us while we were putting some final touches on our building. It was apparent he was a salesman but so much more. There was an immediate attraction to him due to his genuine friendliness, gregariousness, and reaching out to us in ways that were helpful. He had one of the most remarkable memories and life stories I've ever witnessed...and he loved to tell his stories also! Through our 35 years of practice, he was a true friend in more ways than I can innumerate. He's also been our friend the last 10 years since we sold our practice. Each of our calls and visits have been rewarding in multiple ways. There's no question that he loved Lisa, Tom, and his grandchildren...and his beloved Mitzi, of course. We always thought he'd live longer than his mother but apparently that wasn't to be. We do know, based on our many conversations, that's he's with his Heavenly Father and he's enjoying his new body! We'll miss him terribly...already do...but are so much richer to have known him. Our sincere condolences to Lisa & Tom ~ you never have to wonder if you were loved!
