  1. A very nice neighbor, always a gentleman. Just sorry we didn’t get to know him better. We didn’t realize there were connections from many years ago until we read his obituary. Peace be with him.

  2. Blessings to Wa and the family and friends he left behind. Every time one of us remembers him he will receive a message of love and know that someone still cares.

  3. I am sorry about the loss of your loved one. Words cannot describe feelings in a time like this. Many have found comfort in the Bible’s promises of seeing our past loved ones again such as at John 5 verses 28 and 29. Take care of yourselves and keep memories of your past loved one close.

  4. I worked with Warren at the Armstrong Rubber Co. in West Haven until leaving in late 1969. We had many contacts while hiring about 30 engineers, and while meeting with the Management and union committee every Thursday, year around. He played softball with our Industrial Engineering team for several years, and had great fun as well as a very good team. He was a very sociable fellow, a good friend, as well as a slugger! I spend a great deal of time with Margaret Lee across the driveway, #4 unit, since 1994 and never knew that he was so close – we never met, Regretfully! (I was 85 years last Sept.14th.)

  5. My parents, aunt Helen Castiglione (deceased), Jack and Marge Rafferty (both deceased) knew Mr. Endriss from all the years they spent together at the Armstrong Rubber Co. in West Haven. I believed they golfed together also. The name Warren Endriss was forever used in passing in a good way from all the above so I know that he wasw a good man/as was my family members. It just goes to show you that even though I personally did not know a person that the person in question was a good one by the remarks made and remembered of the past. I am sorry to hear of the loss and may God take care of him and my family up in Heaven also. Thank you.

  6. Semper Fi, Brother we will all miss your presence. God’s speed to you. My deepest sympathies go out to Warren’s family and all whom shall miss him.
