He will be missed!

He was a true transformer.

He'll leave many fond memories and a great legacy.


Warner was an inspiring mentor and colleague who will be truly missed. Sending my best wishes to his friends and family. -Jon

So sad. He was a great friend and a great man.

Sadly, Warner has passed us his torch. Somehow we must carry it. My favorite Warner effort involved him, a Harvard professor, 'walking the walk' by taking the College Board Exams - back in the day, Ca 1980.  (How many of us would do that, or something equivalent, today?)  As I remember, he took exception to one of the vocabulary questions involving the word 'vespers'. The larger conclusions are here ...,-is...

There are few people whom we can say were true pioneers, who established a path or a field of endeavor, blazing a trail that many, many thousands of us have followed. Warner was truly one, and while being sad at his passing, we must honor him and celebrate his life and legacy. Warner was both a giant and a gentle soul, and I will miss him greatly. ‒ Bill
