Warren, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, passed away peacefully at home on September 10th surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife Jane, children Kevin (Brittany), Maureen, and Meg, grandchildren Alex, Josie, and Theo, siblings Renee, Mark, Ward, and Robert, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Warren was predeceased by his son, Matthew, older brother Michael and parents Robert and Helen. Second oldest of six kids, Warren grew up in an active close knit family. He attended Holy Redeemer Grade School in North Portland. He graduated from Central Catholic High School, University of Portland BS and Lewis and Clark MAT. After a few years of teaching middle school, Warren became a contractor specializing in finish carpentry. His true love was buying and remodeling old houses which he was able to continue to do after his illness due to the undying support and encouragement from Jane and his good friend and business partner of 45 years, Doug Adams. Warren had an indomitable spirit. In spite of a brain tumor diagnosis at the age of 39, he faced everyday with hope, strength, courage, kindness and a big smile. He was passionate about his family. He cherished all the time that he and Jane were able to spend with the family at the beach in Gearhart. He loved the horse trips, rafting, and annual golf trips with his brothers. He was artistic. He loved painting with acrylics and watercolors, he loved writing poetry, he loved antiques and collecting. He was alway thrilled when he could incorporate his “found” architectural pieces into his remodeling. He was passionate about the environment and clean air.. Some of his happiest moments were those days that he would go out to his land and plant 100’s of seedling trees. Warren was deeply loved and will be missed. May he Rest In Peace. A Memorial Mass and reception will be held in his honor on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at 1:00 pm at All Saints Catholic Church in Portland.


Leave the earth with beauty

Earth specializes in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. We then send this soil to our local conservation land where it’s used for restoration projects such as reforestation and nourishing challenged ecosystems.
