Thank you for posting the statement Wayne.

Another reminder of how fragile and short our lives can be. Warren was a wonderful and tireless contributor to this Board, but I imagine he touched other lives well outside our Porsche community in many other ways.

Give your kids a hug, say something nice to the wife, don't get upset at the clown that cuts you off in traffic or steps in line ahead of you.

Life is too short - make the best of it.

Rest in peace Warren.

Rest in Peace Warren. We, who only knew you through your comments here, could still feel your intelligence and your humanity. You were a fine man and considered a friend by so many. God's peace to those you left behind.

True wealth is not measured in money or material possessions, but by the lives we touch and the good we leave behind. Warren died a rich man.

Rest in Peace Warren.

God's blessings to your loved ones.

Warren often posted more knowledge about a topic off the top of his head than many of us would learn in a lifetime. He was generous with his time and without petty judgement of people in need of technical assistance.

RIP, and thank you Warren.

To understand the impact Warren had on this board just do a search of your screen name and Warren's (Early_S_Man) screen name together. Like others have pointed out he not only knew about 911's, he completely understood how things work. Here is an example of his modesty in a post:

Kurt B

Okay, I believe I found the source of my troubles. Inside the first pic (where the input shaft goes), were the remains of some disintegrated piece of something. Grinding in there like sand in a CV joint...I am not sure what disintegrated though because this is the first time I have seen any of these parts.

Kurt V

Those are needle bearings that have broken up. They come from the bearing you are pointing at in the picture.


Kurt, Last pic could be in better focus, but it looks to me as though many of the needles have fallen out and, as Kurt V pointed out ... are now laying about in much smaller pieces than when they left the factory! I suspect that the grinding noise you heard was the process that made little particles out of those needles!

Kurt V

Let's not be modest Warren! I want to give credit where it is due. You made this diagnosis in the original thread even before any evidence was presented!

One of the ways I deal with the loss of people around me is to focus on remembering them through the various interactions we had. I always say that if we keep someone in our memories they are never really gone.

Those who have read many of Warren's posts know he was particularly focused on the electrical aspects of our cars. He could diagnose any electrical problem like it was child's play. Electricity has always managed to stump me, so I really appreciated reading Warren's posts. As others have pointed out, I loved the exclamation marks! I will miss them. My point is that every time I have an electrical problem, I will do a search here and see Warren's posts and he will still be there.

Because of this forum and Warren's contribution, he will always be with us. It is odd to say good bye to a friend that I never met. Godspeed Warren Hall.

A fitting tribute, with the Wiki idea!

Along with his legacy of deep Porsche knowledge, he also educated (at least me) on what Cystic Fibrosis is, and what people who suffer from this go thru. If we ever have opportunity to be involved in some form of charity, it sounds like CF could be a great cause, and doing so in honor of Warren would be a fitting show of our gratitude for his help.

He will be missed, my heart goes out to his friends and family.
May we all touch as many people, pass it on.

I'm thinking that God is restoring a 72S and wanted the very best at his side. He chose well.

We'll miss you sorely Warren. You helped me in countless ways as I undertook many of my projects over the years. Look forward to shaking hands on the other side...
