    I read today that Warren passed away. My sincere condolences to Toby and children. Warren and I grew in Fair Lawn. I spent many Sunday mornings at his home enjoying bagels and lox and lots of laughs. I last saw Warren when I visited him right after tragic 9/11. He was right there performing paramedic duties helping survivors. Although I did not have contact with him since then, I have often thought about him and the good times we had growing up.

    • Gordon Summer

      In 1943, Russia defeated the German army in Stalingrad, Allied forces achieved victory in North Africa, Italy surrendered, and a force called Warren Kaufman was born. In 1960, believe it or not, Warren was graduated from Fair Lawn High School after only 12 years of study (well, not all 12 in high school).

      That’s where we became friends and that friendship lasted until 2 days ago, when my friend ticked me off for the last time. Wasn’t supposed to happen. I befriended the guy because he was younger than me so I’d never have to write words like these.

      We went on to college. His was Fairly Ridiculous as I recall. At least he got through it. I never made it. Went off to the Army and left my girl behind. I asked my friends to look out for her. Two of ‘em did. They dated her. And both of ‘em, independently, told her Mom that she shouldn’t marry me, but should marry them. Warren didn’t do that. He was my true friend. (I think he had already met Tobie and realized that she was the one.)

      I got home and married Joyce. Warren married the love of his life. She’s right here in this room. Tobie and Warren visited us a lot. They were really good buddies. They’d bring us ice cream. What more could we want?

      You might say that Tobie and Warren and Joyce and Gordon bonded, though they were always looking to one-up us. (We had 2 sons. They had 3.) Warren, of course, bonded in more ways than one, with a stellar career selling the stuff.

      Now he’s broken our life-long bond. Hope he’s happy flying his Porsche into the stratosphere. We hear there’s no speed limit up there. God speed dear friend . . . .
