We are deeply saddened by the loss of a sailor from the greatest generation: Chief Petty Officer Howard Warnberg. Howard is a key figure and supporter of the Vets Art Monument–where he modeled for the Navy painting as the Navy Chief. Howard was a gentlemen’s gentlemen, and prominent figure in the community of Little Falls. He served as a County Comissione and ran a successful flooring business. It was a great honor to have known him for 40 years, and I got to know his spirit well as he posed for his portrait in the studio. He leaves a wonderful legacy, and will truly be missed, however as the Navy Chief he stands watch at the Cemetery.
