Warren touched many of us and was a positive light force. I feel fortunate to have shared treasured moments with he and his family. Warren will be sorely missed. Condolences to Ervette and Dynasti.

David Westbrooks says:

Warren was a husband, father, brother, uncle, mentor, friend and just an overall good person. He was loved and admired more than he knew. Warren was smart, insightful, funny, intelligent, always looking for a new friend, and yes he was tall. Despite Warren’s height, I never felt he was talking down to me, or anyone else. He would always inquire about my kids and grandkids. I will miss that. Diane and I will miss the times we spent together as couples. I will miss our lunches & happy hours with other friends like Lee and Stubby. I will miss his bad jokes and all the laughter… but most of all I will miss my friend, Warren (aka… Tree).

Your friend,
David Westbrooks & Family

I was blessed to have met Warren and share a few stories and experiences over the years. He was an honorable man and loved his family. You will be missed my friend. Rest in power!

Vernon Clemons says:

I knew his from when we met in 7th grade. We walked many paths together and as life would have it, found we had to divert our journey as time marched on. I know his heart was to serve and for this I will remain grateful to say I got a portion of his kindness along the way.

He is now walking his journey with God, face to face.
