WELLFLEET – William Ezra Warren, 80, of Wellfleet, passed away peacefully on Dec. 10, 2013. He was born in Brooklyn, NY, the son of Frank and Elizabeth (Whitaker) Warren and brother of Jane Warren Cuyler. He is survived by his wife, Beverly (Scott) Eastman Warren, of Wellfleet. William (Bill) was raised in Newton, MA and graduated from Summit High School in Summit, NJ. He received a bachelor’s degree in history from Amherst College and did graduate studies in architecture at MIT. Following college, Bill was a lieutenant in the USAF, flying B-25 planes as part of a search and rescue group in Alaska and the west coast. Bill worked as an architect in Boston for over 35 years. Bill loved the out of doors, in particular hiking, fly fishing, camping and skiing. Many vacations and weekends were spent at the old family home in Vermont. His later years were spent kayaking the Wellfleet bays and playing golf year-round. He loved visiting with family and especially his grandchildren. A lifelong learner, Bill was an avid reader and had a great interest in politics, science and sports. Bill thoroughly enjoyed talking to everyone about anything, was generous, open-minded and loved a good laugh. Bill was particularly gifted at teaching his skills and interests to others and taught many people to ski, kayak and cast a fly. Besides his wife Beverly, he is survived by his children: Susan Warren and her husband Dave Shepard of Middlesex, VT; Robin Warren and her partner David Coupe of Portland, OR; Douglas Warren and his wife Karen of Broomfield, CO; his stepchildren, Scott Eastman and his wife Dawnnica of New York, NY and Laura Eastman of Seattle, WA; his grandchildren, Brendan Shepard, Katelyn Warren, Eila and Sonia Eastman and Hazel Walton; niece Juliana Cuyler Dolan, nephew Alex Cuyler, and cousins, Caleb Hale and Ezra Hale. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum (wellfleethistoricalsociety.org), P.O. Box 58, Wellfleet, MA 02667, in memory of William E. Warren. A memorial service will be held this Spring in Vermont.

Well Bev, I am so sorry to hear our sad news of Bills passing. I have talked to Don Maclay who was as shaken by the news as I was. As you know, Bill quickly became "one of the gang" upon his arrival in Summit. He fit in so well with his quiet way. I call him the quiet giant. We all had so much fun together ( there were 9 or 10 of us) You may not know that Bill and I are fraternity brothers also, I am a Theta Delt from Leigh University.I will keep you and your family in my prayers. With love, Don Steeber

Bill was a classmate at Summit High School, Class of 1951. He and Bev were at our 60th Reunion in 2011 looking well and happy. Don't know that there will be a 65th reunion of our class, but, if there is, we will remember his quiet charm and friendship. Isabelle Scherer Cunningham, Class of 51.
