We have lost our multi-talented, charismatic, amazing chef on August 20th. Warlie was a beautiful, unselfish soul. He was one of the main building blocks of our Shiro's family. Through his strength and character, we were able to achieve so much. All of us are struggling with this gaping hole in our hearts. With his wicked sense of humor and boundless energy, we were able to laugh and joke through what should have been horrendously stressful days with hundreds of catering orders to fill. He was our Rock of Gibraltar - always there and always steadfast. He shared his recipes and skills freely with his subordinates, pushing them to succeed. He was generous to a fault - constantly sending money to the Philippines to help out family and good friends.
We have cried so many tears because he was taken so suddenly. He was fully vaccinated and DID NOT HAVE COVID. His heart just gave out.
Please take a moment to honor Warlie. He was a great man, a great person and a dear friend. We will miss him forever............
Rest in peace, dear Warlie!!!
