  3. Warren was in an elite category when it came to the Door and Hardware Industry. His knowledge and skills put in at a level few of us will ever achieve. His willingness to share these gifts was one of the things that I personally am thankful for.

    I know I can speak for everyone in this industry when I say, he will be missed.

  4. Pat and family,

    Even though I have been a friendly competitor to Warren for the last 20 years, I will never forget spending time with him making sales calls in the mountains when I was the Corbin hardware rep working with McKinney Door and Hardware. Warren’s message was simple yet effective; be honest, let them know you will do a good job and then back it up. My sense is that he spent his whole life doing just that.

    I have always held Warren in the highest regard as has the entire construction community throughout Colorado. He will be sorely missed. He was truly one of the great ones!

    You are in Roxane and my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

  5. Pat and family: How I wish our encounter at the Tea Palace could have been under happier circumstances! I was so sorry to learn of Warren’s recent death. Please take care of yourself.

  6. All of our thoughts are with the family in remembering Warren. Our father Skip Larson also sends his love along to you; Eric, Tanner, Lora, Ted, Phyllis & Charles.

  7. Pat and family, accept that comfort that God gives. We are so sorry to hear of Warren. We remember the love he had for God and his word. Such a wonderful and great man. God Bless you all.
