Warren grew up in the Woodlake development located in North Sacramento where he attended Woodlake Elementary, Valley Vista Junior High and Norte Del Rio High School. He graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelors Degree in Art and had a lifetime career as a Potter and General Contractor. He spent the last 13 years fighting multiple myeloma, congestive heart failure, and end stage renal failure, succumbing to his illnesses on November 13th.
He is survived by his wife and best friend of more than 30 years, Karen Williams Tobey, their sons, Chris (Kendra), Jason (Desirae) and daughter, Nicole (Dan). His Sisters, Carol and Anita (John) and Nancy (Bill); Nieces, Heather, Michele, Kelly (Jonathan), Christina (Marcos), Stacey, Becky (Jimmy), Katie (Ben), Kayla, Cloie and Nephews, Derek, Kai, John (Kristin), Kyle (Jessie), and Conner. He is also survived by His Sister-in-Laws, Ginny (Mike who preceded him in death), Gloria (Jack, who preceded him in death), Sharon (Howard), Mary and Arlene (Don). He loved spending time with all of his family, especially his nine grandchildren, Ethan, Carter, Logan, Chase, Lennon, Leanna, Tommy, Claire, Emma and far too many friends who were as close as family to name.
In healthier times, he loved to travel, play golf, make trips to the coast and create beautiful art pieces in several mediums such as clay, glass and wood. Our hearts are heavy as we say goodbye to our beloved Husband, Dad, Poppa, Brother, Uncle, Artist and Friend.
