Bob Warren served on the Editorial Board for the paper’s first issue and was Chairman of the Observer’s Board of Director’s from 2001 to 2012. He was a hands-on leader, contributing 62 articles and writing headlines as well as initiating and writing the “Food for Thought” column. The Observer mourned Bob’s death in 2016, as did the community Bob served so well. Bob’s wife of 60 years, Margery, continues to manage the paper’s proof-reading sessions. The Warrens are pictured above holding their Scotties, Hermione and Harriet.
