I was his step-son. I was looking for him for a number of years. He loved me like a son and all I have are fond memories of him. I'm saddened to hear he passed. I wish I could have found him sooner. I lost contact with him at 8 years old. I think it would make him laugh to hear that I went to school for graphic design. I was going through my old pictures today of him and it hurts to know that I will never get to see him one last time. But I will hold onto the good memories I have of him and his goofy laugh. Thanks dad.

I am shocked to hear about the death of Scott Warren. We were fellow "stringer" photographers in Burbank, CA where we both grew up. We both worked several non-photo jobs together in the 70's and 80's. Scott was a true friend and gifted photographer. He taught me a lot in the years we worked together. Many of your don't know his passion for having been a member of the Burbank Tourmament of Roses Assc. and decorating the City of Burbank's Rose Parade float for many years. His love for comminity service was wonderful. I would like to talk to more people that knew him for the last 20 years. Those years that I had not seen or talked to Scott.

I was privileged to have known Scott for many years. And equally privileged to have gotten him to sign a photo for me. I knew of his troubles and yet he somehow in our conversations eventually would break a smile no matter how bad a day he was having. Several of us helped him through that very rough time when Buffy passed. They will both be missed; I still miss not seeing Buffy lying on the sidewalk and will miss Scott just not popping up from time to time when I'd go out to lunch, or seeing him standing on a street corner somewhere talking with someone with that wonderful smile of his and always a hat on. Hopefully he is smiling and at peace now with Buffy by his side.

Scott will be sorely missed..He had taken some really great photos of this place...He had also brought so many smiles to my little girl..Ryoko who didn't have a father figure in her life he really made a difference for her. But we should remember that he is still here in all of out hearts, he is in God's care now. God Bless you Scott.

I have fond memories of Scott in his funny hats coming in Safeway, and encourging me to wear my Elf hat at Christmas. He made me smile, and I will miss him dearly. Whenever I wear my elf hat from now on I will think of Scott.

I lived with Scott for over a year and witnessed his amazing talent first hand. He could "point & click" and get the most wonderful photograph. I never was able to figure out how he did it. He could restore old photographs and had a fantastic collection of old photo's of Old Williams that he loved to share with the town. He started his carreer as a child on the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, CA. Jack Warner himself spoke to Scott, and advised him on his carreer choice. He has met many famous people and counted them as friends, but he never dropped names or used them to futher himself. Scott wouldn't even sign his photos, as he felt it was boasting. He never felt his work was good enough. He was troubled with demons from his childhood, which was horrific at times. It was amazing to know what he had endured and see what he had become. When I was going thru surgery and treatment for cancer, it was Scott who went with me and made me laugh. He was devestated when Buff died, and although we went on to get Brother and then Onyx, he was never the same. He was a gifted, tortured soul who is now at peace. I for one am a better person for knowing and loving him, and for having been blessed to be loved by him.
