He was born in Malden, MA, on April 24, 1942, the son of the late Wallace E. Newcomb and the late Anne G. (Chalker) Newcomb Perry. As a boy, he grew up on his family’s farm “Hemlock Haven” located in Langdon, NH. He was the beloved husband of Reva A.

He was employed by Pratt & Whitney Aircraft (United Technologies) in Middletown, CT, where he was a foreman and had an exceptional career for 36 years. He lived and raised his family in Manchester, CT, before retiring in1998 to spend time with his loving wife in his cherished childhood home in Langdon, NH, and spend the winters in sunny Bushnell, FL.
He was affectionately known as “Papa Bear”, enjoyed bowling and played on a league for many years, loved to travel and go camping, was an avid reader of old western novels, loved John Wayne movies and Johnny Cash; he was a true puzzle “King”. He was happiest taking in the breathtaking views from his front porch of Mount Monadnock and spending time with family and friend’s playing cards, dice, and sharing that wonderful laugh of his!
Warren was loved and will be missed by his many friends and family
that reached through numerous states. May his spirit and our memories
of him continue to guide us and forever be in our hearts.
