Obituary

Wesley A. Warren, age 49, of Apalachin, NY returned to his Lord Sunday morning at home. Born in Huntsville, AL on August 4, 1964, son of Stella J. Warren of Apalachin, and the late Deward W. “Red” Warren, Wesley was an Associate Professor at SUNY Broome Community College in the Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Department. He took great pride in his military service in the US Army Military Police (MP) from which he was honorably discharged after serving at Fort McClellan, AL, Fort Ord, CA and finally Schofield Barracks, HI. He was also a proud active member of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. A former Police Officer for many years, Wesley earned an A.A.S. degree from SUNY Broome Community College, a B.S. degree from SUNY Binghamton, and a J.D. degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Wesley was an avid golfer, chess player, reader and conversationalist — where his infectious smile and stories were larger than life, especially during the numerous bonfires he held in his backyard. Due to his generous heart, he was admired and respected by many. He was always ready to volunteer his services whenever and wherever they were needed – in all kinds of weather and all kinds of circumstances. Wesley is also survived by his greatest treasures, daughter Katelyn Warren of Albany NY, son Wesley Alex Warren of Endicott NY, nephew Nicholas, and granddaughter Logan. He is also survived by his sister Wendy Harris of Gainesville FL, and brother and sister-in-law David and Mimi Warren of Apalachin NY.
The family will receive relatives and friends at the Allen Memorial Home, 511 East Main St. Endicott, NY 13760 on Saturday February 15, 2014 from 1 to 4 pm. Per Wesley’s wishes, no funeral service will be held; burial will be at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a memorial contribution for his children’s continuing education and granddaughter’s college fund – in c/o: David Warren, P.O. Box 150, Owego, NY 13827.

Wes and I worked together in the Criminal Justice department at SUNY Broome for many years. He put in long hours making sure that students got whatever help they needed. He always made time for students and always said yes. In fact, when I was chair, I told him he needed to say no sometimes, since we sometimes ended up with more students than chairs in his classes. I will remember him especially for his quiet kindnesses--he always welcomed everyone in his office and at his table at meetings and workshops. Whenever his name comes up, people smile.

Wesley was a man I admired for his work at the community college and his love of life. So energetic and kind. His death is a terrible tragedy and so needless. He always made an effort to change for the good. For that he will be remembered with kindness.

Wesley was one of my closets friends growing up in Appalachin. I was the new kid in town in 1977. Wes was one of the first people to introduce himself and ask my name and were I was from. From there we became best friends and shared many teenage memories growing up. He was a true friend and would give you the shirt off his back. He will be truly missed by all his friends and family. RIP "Wild Wes"

The Warren family were our next door neighbors for 8 years and we knew the children as they were growing up. The entire family, Wes included, were invaluable to us while my wife was going through three difficult pregnancies. After our first child, Jeffrey, was born, the entire family continued to help with the new baby. This is the kind of family the Warren's are, Our hearts are full of sorrow and sadness on Wes's passing and the effect it has on this wonderful family, which has had it's share of difficulties's over the past few years.
