Obituary

Warren F. Bayreuther, 89, passed away on December 25, 2017  in Port Orange, Fl.  He was born on April 13, 1928 in Hartford, CT to Christian Jr. and Hermina Bayreuther. Warren grew up in Niantic, Connecticut. He graduated from Chapman Tech in New London, CT in 1946. After high school he enlisted in the Navy. He joined the Underwater Demolition Team 3, serving aboard the USS Basilone and became a Navy Seal.  Upon discharge from the Navy, he joined his father Christian Jr. and his brother, Christian III building Bayreuther Boat Yard on Smith Cove in Niantic, Connecticut. Warren married the love of his life, Margaret Harrington in East Lyme, CT in 1951.  They were happily married for 66 years. Warren loved to sail his remote controlled model sailboats with his friends from South Daytona Model Yacht Club.  He loved Scouting where he would perform the graduation ceremonies as Cub Scouts became Boy Scouts. He had a full Indian Chief  wardrobe complete with full length head dress which was hand made by a good friend many years ago.  He was very proud of this and treasured it deeply. He was most proud of when he  “graduated” his grandsons John Rice & Joseph McShane from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. In later years, his great granddaughter, Sadie Perry would assist him in these ceremonies. He also received the Silver Beaver award for the 47 years supporting the scouts. All together Warren was a registered member of the scouts for about 64 years.  In the mid 1970’s he started a co-ed group Sea Explorers Ship 15.  He was a positive role model for thousands of children throughout the years, many of whom still keep in touch as of today. Warren is survived by his spouse Margaret of Port Orange, FL, his daughter Beverly and Harold Rice of Waterford, Gloria and Nevil Petrini of Waterford, Cynthia McShane of Port Orange,  Warren Bayreuther of  East Lyme, & David Bayreuther of Oakdale, CT.  He is also survived by his grandchildren Michael & Michelle Petrini, Peter Rice & Anita Kuan, John & Jennifer Rice, Jennifer Perry & David Apoleon, Kim & Joseph McShane and Stephanie & Tiffany Bayreuther. He also has 5 great grandchildren, Mia & Max Petrini, Sadie Perry, Selah Apoleon & Amelia Rice, and another one due in the spring. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. Warren was preceded in death by his parents Christian Jr & Hermina Bayreuther and brother Christian III.   His son James Warren Bayreuther passed at age 6. Warren will be laid to rest with military honors at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery in Mims, Florida.  Burial will be private.  A celebration of life will be announced. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to Vitas Hospice, 575 N. Clyde Morris Blvd, Suite A, Daytona Beach, FL 32114 or to the Work Vessels for Vets, PO Box 215, West Mystic, CT 06388.

    The boys of Port Orange Cub Scout Pack 477 will miss you, Warren. You gave them fabulous words of wisdom and advice. You left them with the memories of the amazing ceremonies you put together for advancements. No one can forget the Bobcat ceremonies with you in full Native American attire and the beautiful head dress.

    My deepest sympathy and empathy to all of your family. Warren was always such a dear man, compassionate and caring. He conveyed so much to us kids in Ship 15, taught us so much about respect, honour, and responsibility. He helped us all to become good people, as an example, he was one of the best. I shall miss him so much.

    Please accept our heartfelt condolences. We met Warren 3 years ago and he introduced us to RC sailboats at the South Daytona pond. He always had a kind word and offered to show us the ropes whenever we struggled with our boats. He was a great guy and I enjoyed his wisdom and friendship. He will be missed.
