  1. I am so sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. He was one of the most pleasant, knowledgeable, and caring people I have ever had a pleasure to know.
    I had the honor of helping take care of Iris and Dick’s property, and a lot of their daily needs for over 25 years, and would do it again on a heartbeat!
    I think of Iris a Lot, and am sure I will think of Dick a lot, as we talked almost daily when I was taking care of things for them.
    I will truly miss him, He was definitely one of the Good Guys, and I will miss you Dick.

  2. Dick Warman had a great life. Not only did he create a great life for himself but also for his family, friends and his business associates. I knew Dick for 30 years and in those 30 years he taught me a lot. He taught me about business and he taught me about “safety driving” which was done on a private race track. Dick Warman is one to remember for forever. Thank you Dick Warman.

  3. I have had the up most pleasure of knowing and working with Richard for the last 6 years.
    While he was usually quiet, he did have a little wit to him and a sense of humor. He laughed at my jokes just to make me feel good I’m sure.
    I never met someone who could nap off and on all day and still get a good night sleep. But that was Richard.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Richard’s family who I have gotten to know over the years.
    Rest In Peace Richard, until we meet again. TJ
