  1. …..I can still here Danny greet James at the Bus Terminal “Hey little Brother,What ya want to eat today.” My Buddy Danny always had his thoughts on James and what James needed. Dannys look-a-like, James! They were always foolen everybody! James always waved at everybody when He was walken down the street! We will MISS you Little Brother!!

  2. Anyone that knew Jimmy liked him, it was always a pleasure to run in to him. Jimmy Warrick will certainly be missed at St. Pauls, at the K of C and in our community.

  3. Jimmy will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Even after his health started to fail him, I could still see him sitting in front of Granadas, giving me the high-sign as I drove by. He would show up before mass at 11:00am to watch our choir practice, even before some of the choir members were there. I will REALLY miss Jimmy , and so will everyone that had the privilege of knowing him. Luv ya, James…..see you, old man.

  4. James was a Main Street icon. He knew everyone and everyone knew him. The early days in the Jaycees bring back memories of James helping with the Christmas tree sale. He was always the first to arrive and the last to leave; and always willing to do his share. May God grant him eternal rest in His kingdom.

  5. Danny & family, With great sadness we heard of the passing of James. We have so many wonderful memories of your Mom, Dad and all of you growing up with us in the North End. Our Mom and Dad loved each one of you. Driving down Main Street will not be the same for us without James giving us his familiar salute. He was a sweetie. He knew no strangers, everyone was his friend. Please be strong for each other and may God grant James eternal peace. Love, Bertha, Martha, Susan, Adam and Stan

  10. Junior, You have our deepest symapthy on the passing of Jimmy. We were very shocked when we read it on line tonight. We would see Jimmy going into Grandas, walking to church and in the Center. Sorry that we can not be there for you since we are now down here in Virginia Beach. May Jimmy now be at peace.

  11. I feel privilaged to have known Jimmy. Jimmy not only volunteered his time and energy, but gave his all, to the Hancock County Sheltered Workshop Bingo, the Knights of Columbus, and various other organizations in Weirton. Weirton asked……Jimmy gave Weirton asked……Jimmy gave. Jimmy never asked for any kind of recognition, he will be sorely missed by those who knew him.

  12. Rest in Peace Jimmy, you were allways very kind to me.You were EVERYWHERE.JESUS will bless you.

  13. Dear J.R and Family, I was so shocked to see the passing of Jimmy on line this morning. May God bless you as you call to memory all the wonderful memories Jimmy left for you all. He truly was a Great guy who was so very nice to everyone. I never once passed him but, what he did not speak. Good Good guy who will truy be missed in Weirton. May God Bless Love, Darlene

  14. I only somewhat knew Mr. Warrick but one thing I remember about him in particular though is that he was an Usher at St. Paul\\\’s Catholic Church for many many years. In heaven right now, God should definitely be saying to him \\\”you were a faithful servant of mine that did my works for me during your earthly life.\\\” May God bless the rest of your family Jimmy as they pass through this time of hardship right now.

  15. Our family grew up by the Warricks. The whole family was always very friendly. I will never forget the time James got scalded and my mother took him to Childrens Hospital in Pittsburgh. Your mother and father were ever so grateful. James always had a smile on his face and would always speak. He loved life and loved working with George at Granadas. I am deeply saddend by his passing and even more so that I missed his showing. I would have been there but just read the obits. Peace be with your family. You have our deepest sympathy.

  16. I am so sorry to hear this. Jimmy, you were a truly good person and the world is a lesser place without you in it. It was great seeing you at the reunion last summer and I\\\’m glad we got to talk for a few minutes. I\\\’ve known Jimmy since I started first grade at St. Paul\\\’s. You were a special guy. Rest in Peace. Anthony
