    Warrem was a good father and husband and moreover a good man. He understood and valued his friendships with others. He was all about making sure folks were having a good time and enjoying themselves. He valued our wild fishiers and worked to save them for future generations to enjoy. I’m going to miss alot from my friendship with Warren, but – i’ll never be able to ever light another good cigar or enjoy our camp drink without him entering my thoughts when or wherever i may travel…

    I only met him once, but in that brief meeting, it was easy to see the kind of generous man he was. He will be missed.

    Warren was a wonderful friend, an outstanding human being, and an excellent fisherman. We fished together often and never failed to have a good time. I will truly miss his friendship and camaraderie.

    I didn’t know Warren as well as some of you did, but he always struck me as a good man, well-grounded and an active advocate for wild fish. It’s a great loss that he is no longer with us. My condolences to all who where close to him.

    Warren was a truly good man. He was very generous with his friendship, his fishing knowledge and some seriously good barbecue.

    He was a good man and great fisherman… and the man could cook!! We will miss him on the river and around the campfire.

  8. Ian says:

    He taught me how to row a boat, build a rod, and tried to teach me how to tie a fly. He could talk fishing for hours and made great some great BBQ. He was always smiling. I have not met many people who loved the river as much as Warren did. As tragic as his passing is, at least he left doing what he loved. We are all better off simply for having been lucky enough to have know him.

    I only fished with Warren a few times….I wish it had been more. He was like that really cool uncle that some of us are lucky to have. Thanks for the passion you had for our rivers and that amazing Deschutes chili you shared with us all on that hot summer evening.

    Warren was the best fly fisherman I knew and an even better friend. He will be missed. I will think of him whenever I’m on the river.

  11. Scott H says:

    Warren was a wonderful person. He loved fishing, cigars, cooking. He loved his family and friends most of all. He was a great companion fishing on the river, camping on a beach, sharing stories and of couse, a drink. He was alway a safe boater who paid great attention to details. I will miss him and think of him with each redside I catch and release.

    Warren sounds like a great guy. I did not know him but know more than a couple who did. Condolences to family and friends.

    I never met Warren, but I know him. I’ve known and loved his parents for many decades, and, since I also am a fly fisherman, they have shared with me narrations of many of Warren’s fishing adventures and several photographs. I’ve also come to know Warren’s character through comments on his relations with his wife and children. The comments herein from his many friends have confirmed what I already knew: He was truly a wonderful man. All of us who knew him are better people because he walked among us.
