LaDema and family: Warren was my math teacher and always an easy going guy. He was one of my favorites. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

Dear LaDema and family, Warren was such a sweet, fun loving man. I will always remember driving the charter bus for the class trip. He enjoyed being with his classmates so much. We all had such fun! He always had a special smile for me when we would see each other at church after that. LaDema always remember Jesus will be with you as you mourn, and comfort you and the family . Warren has graduated to his eternal home with Christ Jesus and Father God. He has achieved the prize for a race well done...love and prayers , Dave and Barb West

I had Mr. VanGundy for math either at Buckland or Wapak. He was so much fun to have as a teacher. He use to tease me all the time. So sorry for your loss. Marjeanne ( Wiley) Walters
