Warren was a long-time Millwright, retired from Local 1102. He enjoyed fixing things and working with his hands. You could always find Warren working on cars or fixing up his house. Warren loved watching sports, playing fantasy sports leagues, and his bowling league. He always made time for family, and cherished being "Dad" and "Papa Warren." He taught us a lot of things except how to live without him.
A memorial gathering will take place Monday, May 3, 2021 from 12-4 pm at Chas. Verheyden, Inc., 21705 Gratiot Avenue, Eastpointe, 48021.
Warren was always such a kind man. I became so used to seeing him every Sunday or his massage, and sharing our stories, adventures, opinions, and life experiences. He spoke so highly of his kids and grand kids, girlfriend and even his ex wife. I can see him enjoying his boat out on the water now. And knocking down those bowling pins. I'm so grateful to have known him. He has a great legacy left behind him.
No matter what has happened in the past, your dad has always wanted the best for you both!!! Always remember that!💝
