    Reverend Warner both baptized and married me in Speculator, NY. He was such a kind, loving, wise man. In 1976 I wanted him to marry us, but we wanted to write our own vows and personalize the ceremony. Rev Warner was so patient and wise in dealing with us, saying let's look at what you want together and decide. He married us. He was so very kind about it all. My sympathy to his family on the loss of a truly fine man. Donna Leadley

    Words cannot express how we feel when we received the message of Charlie's passing. How grateful we are for the friendship you and he gave us while we were together at Asbury. And what good times we had. Mary and I often sit and recount those days that we had together.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We also offer our love and blessing.

    So sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. I often quote his dry-humor remarks and have terrific memories of the years he was in Hudson Falls and I was in Argyle, not far away. My sympathy to you, dear Rose, and to your family. God bless you. He loves you and I do, too.

    I was saddened to read of the death of Charles. I came to know him early on in my time of service in Troy Conference as a member of the Board of Evangelism and then later when serving in Eagle Mills and Charles at Pawling Ave. He was a fine colleague and his ministry was fruitful. May you all know the enfolding love of God surrounding your lives as Charles has gone home.

    I will always remember Rev! He married me to my life long friend and baptized our three children. I remember he loved to go bowling with his friends at church and was always willing to do the dishes after dinners at church.

    "Charlie" Warner was my collogue and friend for forty years in ministry in the Troy Annual Conference. I respected him as a man of integrity and Christian faith. We shared a heart for evangelism. Well done, good and faithful servant.

  17. Rev. Ed Hackett, Jr. says:
    07 Oct 2015
    I praise God for Rev. Charlies Warner! As an evangelical in Troy Conference he knew my struggles to be accepted by a number of my peers who did not agree with my Bibical Christ-centered theology. He was such a model, a friend, and an inspiration to me! Blessings to all of his family and friends who will miss him greatly, but oh the joy to those who went home to the Lord before him and now greet him! Your are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Blessings, Ed
