Wallace F. “Robin” Warren, 92, resident of Amherst, NH died on August 31, 2014, at the Elliot Hospital, Manchester, NH.

He was born in Portland, Maine, on May 26, 1922, a son of Ernest L. and Alys (Fassett) Warren. He was raised and educated in Maine and earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture from the University of Maine, Class of 1943.

Following graduation, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served in the Pacific, including Guam and China, during World War II and was honorably discharged with the rank of First Lieutenant.

Robin’s family moved from Maine to Amherst where he met and married Dorothy Going in 1947. They were married for 46 years before her death in 1993.

Robin started his working career early in life in the woods and on farms in Maine. Later he worked in management for agricultural companies and enjoyed farming at his home in Amherst for much of his life.

He enjoyed hunting, canoeing, camping, sailing, golf, wood working and gardening. From Labrador to Cape Cod, Robin loved fishing with his friends where he was known to “set the bar,” which was seldom challenged.
