I am grateful that I was able to meet Warren this year. Even though it was only for a short time, his zeal for life and passion for the Lord was highly contagious!

Many prayers for comfort to Bryan, Nancy, their family and the entire team at Ag World. He will be missed!

When I met Warren for the first time, I felt as if I had known him for years. But I don't think it was just me. I believe he had this affect on everyone.

Rarely does one encounter such a nice, warm and approachable person. He was one of my favorite people and I will miss him dearly.

So sorry to hear of Warren’s passing. He is such a gentle giant. I always looked so forward to seeing him at our Alberta events. He is truly a kind & generous soul. My sincere condolences to the family. Our memories will keep him close.

Very sorry to hear of Warren's passing - he will be deeply missed by the potato community. Our sympathy goes out to Judy, Bryan, and your extended families. I first met Warren many years ago and saw him at almost every Trade Show I attended in Canada or the United States over the past 20 years. I was always impressed by his enthusiasm for the industry and the depth of knowledge he had for potato production across the world. Equally impressive was his deep faith and love for his family. RIP Warren!

I was so sorry to learn of Warren's passing. Warren and Judy have always been extremely welcoming anytime I traveled to the US and Warren always made an effort to participate at events held in Alberta. His kindness, generosity and warmth did not go unnoticed. He will be missed at Canada/US events, and to his family, he will always be with you in your hearts as he will in ours.

In getting to know Warren, his family, and friends and colleagues over the years, you can see what kind of person he was. I appreciate the way he cared for others and treated everyone with great respect and love. He had such a genuine way about him that always made you feel comfortable and valued. What a great example and testament to our Savior. He will bring a smile to our faces and warmth in our hearts every time we think of him long into the future.

Warren was such a kind man who inspired others through his infectious personality and wonderful spirit. He will certainly be missed by those who knew and loved him.

Warren has been a long-time friend for McCain people. I met Warren 4 years ago since I started to manage Ag World relationship and service for McCain. He always impressed me as a dedicated and enthusiastic potato industry leader, and a loving and caring wonderful person. I remembered one time I saw him with a broken arm, but his spirit and passion wasn't compromised a tiny bit when we had all day meetings together. Whenever I saw him, he's always very attentive, astute in business conversations, showing up consistently no matter what. I also enjoyed his warmth and caring personality, would for sure miss his hug! He is a true inspiration for potato industry much beyond Ag World, and will be long remembered by friends at McCain.

Before moving to the neighborhood my husband and I were blessed to teach Warren and Judy's children whom always exhibited the true kindness that was taught to them within their home.
Seeing Warren and Judy going on their daily walks together was an inspiration. Many times they would walk by our house, stop for a chat, ask how our daughter was doing or just to say hi while we were sitting on our porch or working in our flower bed. 
Warren will be truly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with the Henninger family.

Earlier this year, I completed an application for an emerging leader workshop through my employer. One question on the application asked me to identify someone that I respect and consider a leader.

"I respect and admire my uncle, Warren Henninger, as a leader. In the late 1990s, he established his own agricultural commodity inspection service company. Today, the company operates throughout the United States and has expanded into China and Canada. Over the years, I have witnessed his motivation and dedication to the business’s success, his employees, and his customers…never settling for less than exceptional benefits and service. He really conveyed the importance of passion and optimism. Despite his significant role and level of responsibility, he never brought his stress home and always made time for his family, displaying a level of patience that I have not witnessed before."

Warren and Judy hosted youth group at their home, and I always loved being part of it. He always had a smile on his face whenever you saw him. He was truly a man of God and it showed in the way he carried himself. I'm deeply sad that he has passed away, but there is a peace in knowing that he is at Jesus feet right now. Warren will truly be missed, but it isnt good bye, its see you later. Until we meet again, Warren....

Obituary

Warren A. Henninger

(August 4, 1945 – May 23, 2020)

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

Warren Adam Henninger, longtime resident of Moses Lake, WA, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 23, 2020 following an accident while doing what he loved, working in his yard. Having accepted Christ as his Savior at a Billy Graham Crusade event, Jesus became the anchor of his life. Warren truly believed “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). Warren will be sorely missed.

Warren, son to the late Harold and Jeanette Henninger, was born August 4, 1945 in Allentown, PA. He loved growing up on a family owned potato farm - helping his dad plant, harvest, grade and sell potatoes. Warren was very active in FFA and served as FFA President at his high school. He graduated from Penn State University in Agronomy and went on to pursue his graduate studies in Crop Science at Oregon State University.

While Warren was in graduate school, he met his wife Judy. They were married in Klamath Falls, OR on July 12, 1970 and had three children. Warren’s entire life and career was spent working in the potato industry in Oregon and Idaho before moving to Washington. After graduate school, he began his work as a County Agent, then was hired by Simplot as a Researcher and Field Manager, and later moved to Moses Lake, as a Division Field Manager for Carnation (later became Nestle and then Simplot). One of Warren’s career highlights was taking the first seed potatoes to China for McDonald’s (Mac) fries. In 1997, Warren founded Ag World Support Systems to meet an industry need of an independent third-party potato inspection company. He loved every moment working with growers, processors, and potato industry folks – travelling the world. He not only loved those in the industry, but he loved his Ag World Family deeply – making sure that each person was valued and appreciated for what they did.

Warren loved serving on the board of the Ronald McDonald House Charities Inland Northwest. He founded the Ag World Golf Classic benefiting the Ronald McDonald House. In its 7th year, the Ag World Golf Classic was a labor of love for Warren, raising over $425,000 for the House.

Warren was very involved in Lakeview Missionary Church for the past 42 years. He served on the church board, district board and national board of the Missionary Church. For the past 15 years, he and Judy enjoyed ministering at a local care home each Sunday morning.

Warren had a passion for God, family, and potatoes. He was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. Warren was always a stable force in the lives of others. He loved providing for and taking care of his family, friends, and anyone in need. Warren was an honorable man who loved his Lord and his family. He was kind and often had a twinkle in his eye as he’d elbow you softly while stealing your french fries. Warren was so proud of his children and took great joy in helping them pursue their career endeavors as both a father and mentor. Warren will leave a big hole in the lives of his family, community, and the potato industry. He was loved so very much and will be missed beyond words can express.

Warren is survived by his beloved wife Judy Henninger of 49 years; his son Bryan and Nancy Henninger (grandchildren Zachary, Caroline, Nathaniel, twins Brielle and Claire) of Moses Lake, his son Craig and Sarah Henninger (grandchildren Addison, Carter, twins Landon and Cole) of Wheaton, IL, and his daughter Melanie and Adam Finch of Moses Lake.Siblings Janet and Jack Snyder, Gerald and Barbara Henninger, Donald and Nancy Henninger, Kathleen and Willard Strunk, and Marilyn and Patrick Crawley. Along with very much-loved nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.

Warren’s Celebration of Life will be held at 10:30a.m. on June 6, 2020 at potato storages located at the corner of Leslie Rd. and Howard Rd. near Warden, WA. Address for GPS (47.0428471, -118.9412307).***This will be a drive up/outdoor service. You may bring your own chair to sit outside.*** https://goo.gl/maps/pu3amkYYxcFH8MVH9

A Christmas Story.

Shared by Jenna Smith on May 31, 2020
So having gone to the same church for a good number of years my family often saw Warren and Judy each week.  A few Christmases ago Warren saw me in church and asked me if Judy had gotten around to jnviting my family over to their house on Christmas Eve.  After telling him that she had indeed asked; but we were just waiting to see if my husband had to work on that day.  Well.....he proceeded to tell me all the reasons why we should go.  Most of them involved the fact that their was going to be quite a bit of pie available at his house.  After chuckling and telling him that he had made some excellent points church started and I couldn't help but smile long after the service had ended. We did make it to enjoy some Christmas Eve pie that year, and as promised it was delicious.  But what makes that story stick out so much in my mind is how Warren had a way of making you feel like you were apart of the family.  Warren, 
thank you for being so kind! You will be missed and certainly never forgotten.
