Warren Dent - Passing December 7th, 2018
Message from Warren's brother:
It's with a very heavy heart that we need to inform everyone that Warren passed away Thursday December 7th at 2:00 am with his Dad holding his hand and his Uncle Bruce right there with him as well.
Warren was told in Aug 2017 that he had 2-24 months to live..... He fought it for 15 hard months right to the end, and we all know he's one tough customer. I'm so proud of the fight he put up, he was in so much discomfort the last few months, so this is best, as hard as that is for me to say!
To all of Warren's friends that he adored, thank you for your friendship and your support of Warren. You have all given him strength to fight this to the end. He has more friends than I could ever dream of, and he loved all of you.
Our family needs support, not just this week, but the coming months as well. My parents have lost 2 children. Mason has lost his Dad. Please continue to reach out and show your love and support for everyone involved. Don't be shy, Warren's legacy will be remember through his friends and family and the memories that have been created.
A celebration of life is being arranged and will be announced in the coming week.
