Warren Schlickenrieder Jr.
Warren Schlickenrieder Jr. entered into eternal rest on Saturday, June 30, 2018, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
He was born in Saranac Lake on Jan. 2, 1958, to the late Warren Sr. and Virginia Schlickenrieder.
He is survived by three sisters: Lynn Sullivan of Raleigh, North Carolina, Lauren Cox-Fazio (Frank) of Slingerlands and Lee (Robert) Edwards of Brooksville, Florida. He is also survived by three nephews, a grandnephew and a grandniece, as well as many cousins.
Warren Jr. graduated from Clayton A. Bouton Jr./Sr. High School. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Haven in Connecticut, where he was a member of the ZBT fraternity.
He was employed by the New York State Department of Taxation for 17 years and rose to the supervisory level before retiring in 2017.
Warren Jr. was a member, past president and huge supporter of the Sons of the American Legion, and participated in most of their fundraising events. He was also a member of the Voorheesville Rod & Gun Club.
Throughout his life, Warren loved sports. He grew up in Saranac Lake and played Pee Wee hockey and Little League baseball. As an adult, he was a dedicated golfer, softball player and bowler. He was an avid fan of the New York Giants football and the San Francisco Giants baseball teams.
Calling hours will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 5 at the Reilly & Sons Funeral Home in Voorheesville, followed by a celebration of Warren’s life at the American Legion in Voorheesville. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, July 6 at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church, followed by burial in the family plot in Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Valhalla.
The family would like to thank all of Warren’s caregivers, in particular the staff at St. Peter’s Hospital, for showing such kindness to Warren in his final days.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society.
