I will miss his laugh. He always laughed at my jokes no matter how bad or corny they were. I know he's in heaven with the Lord and no longer suffering in pain. He will be missed by all who knew him.

He was a great friend at Otis. He always had a big smile and he loved everyone. Now I work at Lowes, and when he would come into the store, I always knew it was Warner.....he would see me and start his big laugh and and come up to and gave me a big hug.....will miss you Brother!!

To the Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I work with Warner at Otis for 20 years and in the time we worked together  I never walked up to him that he did not have that huge smile for me. I do not know if I have ever met a more happy person in my life and it was always a pleasure to be around him. He always brighten up my day.
