I AM SO SAD THAT WE HAVE LOST J.B. HE WAS A TRUE CIVIC MINDED MAN. ALL BEAVERDAM AND BEYOND ENJOY HIS WORK TO BUILD THE COMMUNITY CLUB AND GROUNDS. HE ALSO HELPED OUT IN TIMES OF NEED. HE HELPED US WITH LANDSCAPING, ETC. AFTER THE FLOOD OF 1977. HE IS MISSED. MAY GOD SHINE HIS COMFORTING SPIRIT ON ALL HIS FAMILY ESPECIALLY BRENDA AND JEFF.

The valley won't be the same without J.B. Warren. I never turn on Beaverdam Rd. without seeing the community center sign and thinking of him. If there are lawnmowers in heaven (and I hope there are!) he and dad are busy getting them to run, and swapping stories. J.B. could always be counted on to serve, and his legacy will live on in the community center and grounds. Our condolences to your family. God's blessing and peace to you all.
