Comments So long Warren for as long as I knew you I never got to know you that will and now I think of opportunely's missed never to come my way again. You opened a door showing your your self and one of your true passion with my daughters by showing off your beloved dogs to them leaving them with a found memory of their uncle and his pretty dogs. The best opportunely was not missed, Thanks Warren for shearing that with my kids.

Comments I just discovered that Warren is no longer in this world. I was the graphic designer who worked with him on the cover for INTER LISP. It was one of the most jovial assignments I ever completed. He wanted the little people to be all over the words like bugs and doing their individual tasks. He described the various functions and together we kicked around what that would look like with the cartoon people. We laughed a lot! Xerox wanted to use their own graphics person but he had seen some of my doodles and non-professional stuff and wanted that look. I kept being concerned that the "slick look" of all the Xerox advertising and other company promos didn't jibe with this "comic book" look. He didn't care and was adamant that the book was going to look the way HE wanted it. He wanted it fun and funny. So that's what we did!

Comments I never actually knew warren, but he was a face I have seen at almost every agility trial I have ever entered. He was one of the "regulars" I always expected to see at a trial, and thus was woven into the fabric of my own agility experiences. My thoughts are with his family. Please know that Warren will be missed.

Comments I joined Warren's agility class a couple of years ago. He was a true student of the game and always wanted to know the "why" behind the "how". He didn't talk a lot about his life outside of agility but often wore a Google jacket with his custom-made Headband Aussie Guy t-shirt. His DWIM license plate should have been my first clue but don't we all hope our dogs will DWIM and not what we tell them to do? My warmest thoughts go out to his family.

Comments continued.... When Google acquired YouTube and we started working on the integration process I coined a new nickname for Warren and started introducing him as “The Man Behind the Curtain”. YouTubers were sooo excited to meet this mysterious man that when I finally had him come to the offices it was a packed house! On a side note, I think Warren liked this nickname but he would never admit it. Warren had a big impact on my professional career and for that I am truly grateful. He was a brilliant, funny, quirky and dear person with a heart of gold whom I will never forget. There are so many other funny Warren stories that I cherish, but I wanted to share at least one here on his GuestBook.

Comments I met Warren while working at Google. When I first heard of him my manager referred to him as "Wardog" (this is still his name in phone contacts). When I asked why “Wardog” she explained that he was a brilliant engineer who would tend to scare the crap out of people. (When I later told Warren about this he got that adorable devious smile of his and started cracking up). She then explained that I would be working with him on our contract processing tool "COS". Great, I thought. They are throwing me to the dogs (this was pre Warren having Zayvee). I went to Warren's office to start on the project and was a bit intimidated I must admit. Warren and I sat down and started going over requirements and I was immediately told “don't tell me how to do my job, just tell me what you need”. And then it hit me... Warren was just like my father! An engineer to the core, direct and no-nonsense. Immediately I was strangely at ease. As the years went on Warren and I continued to work together on projects.

Comments I have many fond memories of working for Warren at Sun in the Window System organization. He pushed us and challenged us and supported us. And he's the reason I'm a software engineering manager. He got me to try engineering management when I was a project lead even though I was convinced it was not a good move for me. And he was right - I loved it and I was good at it - and I'm still doing it. Warren had a lot of integrity and was a good mentor. I was just telling someone about him recently when we were discussing management as a possible career path. Warren was also open to me continuing to work in his organization when my husband and I moved to CO in 1990 so Eric could start a Sun site here, and that worked out really well. But none of us knew it would work, and he was still willing to take the chance. Another very fond memory I have of Warren is a day Eric and I skiied with him and another co-worker at Squaw Valley. Warren kept giving me tips about how to go faster and I finally had to tell him that I really didn't *w

Comments Deborah, I want to thank you for reaching out to Warren's high school friends. Had you not done this, I never would have known of his many accomplishments. I am so sorry to hear about his untimely death. I consider any death under age 80 to be untimely. I was an officer in Tri Alpha, a club for the kids who had the highest grades. I have to laugh at the difference between high schools today (my grandson) and back then. I was a secretarial student who never even took algebra, but I made almost all A's. Warren was considered to be kind of a nerdy guy, but that was the way it was back then. From seeing his pictures on this website, I gather he became very good looking and hunky! BTW, most of our cheerleading squad of cuties (I wasn't a cheerleader) are now on the obese side. I found several pictures of Warren in our yearbook. I am consumed by other activities at the moment, but I'll try to scan the pictures and send them to you well before the Memorial Service. I am so sorry for your loss. Diane

Comments I didn't know Warren, but I certainly saw him around at our agility competitions and he was right in there working to do his best. Also, having been in the software world for several decades, reading about his activities and achievements after his death brought many memories of years past. His loss is a loss to the agility community.

Comments I met Warren just a few months back through Ali Golshan who is my colleague at Cyphort. We were exploring opportunities for Warren to help us with some R&D needs. I was impressed with his accomplishments and really liked his enthusiasm for pursuing new technical challenges. His departure is a great loss for the high-tech community.

Comments I got to know Warren (& Deborah) when I fell in love and married Paula, Warren’s sister. Warren was both brilliant & engaging. Whenever we were together there was a definite connection. Warren was someone I enjoyed talking with. He took me to world’s I didn’t know (e.g., computer science, dog agility) and we shared insights on the worlds we both knew (e.g., stock market, movies). The night before Warren died, he emailed me about a DVD I just sent him. Warren had two weeks previously, while Paula & I were staying with him & Deborah, given me the draft of his book (“Memoirs of a Geek”). In it Warren mentions the influence of a little known, but favorite movie of ours, “Then Came Bronson”, about the adventures of a guy who rides away from his CA life, traversing the country on his motorcycle. Warren is physically gone. However, his presence is still felt and, I believe, always will be. For me, Warren is simply riding off on his bike, for further adventures, on the other side. I look forward to being there with him there eventuall

Comments Warren was a formidable figure even among the giants at PARC. In those days, the only thing I ever saw him display patience with was my lousy serve. I only met him once after he left PARC, soon after he had married. Condolences to his family. Here's a story about Warren that was told at the 30th anniversary of the Xerox Alto at the CHM some years ago: In the frustrating days when PARC was trying to demonstrate the future to Xerox executives, there were occasional visits from the Powers That Be in the East. One of them, upon returning to the corporate lair, was reputed to have said to his "assistant": I finally met a man who can type faster than you can. Sigh. Of course, that was Warren.

Comments Dear Deborah, I have just read your sad email about Warren. Although i did not stay in touch with Warren after high school, i do have very fond memories of him. Warren and i were selected from our 4th grade class at Coral Way Elementary School to represent our class in the school Spelling Bee. We studied together several times...... He was not only very smart; he had a fun personality and we laughed a lot together. I am so sorry about your loss.....Warren will remain in my memory bank with great fondness. Warm regards, Linda Rovin Cooper

Comments Deb, you may not remember me. I worked with Warren at Remedy, as the CMO. He had a tremendous influence on me. I remember being graciously welcomed by you into your home. After the Peregrine acquisition, I returned to Texas to raise my daughters. My belated thank for your hospitality and friendship is long overdue, but sincer. Your husband was very generous with his time and genius, and I will forever be grateful. Thank you again for your warmth and friendship extended to to me during that tumultuous acquisition. I will forever be grateful to the two of you, and I regret I allowed the years to slip away. My most sincere condolences on your loss. I know Warren loved you very, very much. Sincerely, Lori Christian Hathaway

Comments Like many of his 'dog friends' I was stunned to read the news of Warren's passing. I did not know him well, but remember he always had a smile & greeting for those of us in the agility crowd. He could almost always be counted on to lend a hand working a class. He was so happy & excited the last time I saw him run, at SMART, and so very proud of Pirate. I hope that someone can run Pirate at the PASA trial in November in honor of Warren. I think it would make him smile, wherever he may be. Deepest sympathy & best wishes. Maggie Guthrie & Corgi the Aussie

Comments I'm so sorry to hear of Warrens passing. My Doberman Khan and I met him at dog training, taking several classes with Georganne. He made those classes fun adding many of his own ideas. His love and dedication to Zayvee were most admirable. It spoke volumes about him as a man and human being . My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the many many people whose lives were touched by this special man.

Comments I admired and respected Warren even before I met him. As the author of DWIM and many other pieces of Interlisp I looked up to him and his work. Soon after starting to work at Sun Micro, I was invited to a meeting with a bunch of people I didn't really know. I got there early and somebody said that we were waiting for "Warren Teitelman" and others. When Warren came into the room I asked him, "are you THE Warren Teitelman?" He looked a little surprised and said something like, "I guess …" at which point I literally kneeled before him and said "You are Mr DWIM!" We all had a big laugh and he and I remained good buddies since then. I am honored by having known him and privileged to have worked with him.
