It is with both great sadness and rejoicing that I need to let you know that last night at 11:45 p.m. Warren Henninger (my dad) joined his Savior in Heaven after being in a coma for a week. All your prayers and thoughts have helped carry Warren and the family through this week. Thank you for continuing to carry the family, especially Judy (my mom), in your thoughts and prayers over the next few difficult weeks. Dad will be sorely missed.

According to Spudman magazine, Chris Voigt,  longtime head of the Washington State Potato Commission, Henninger was “the type of human being that we should all aspire to be. …Warren was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met,” Voigt said.
