Our hearts break as we process the news of Warren Plank’s passing. Warren fought very hard over the last several months but succumbed to Stage 4 Lung Cancer on December 28, 2020. His sister, Deborah Howley was by his side during these past months. Warren cared deeply for his work family at A. Fassano & Company and industry colleagues. We are blessed to have all recently joined in celebrating Warren’s 20-year work anniversary. He was highly respected and his dedication and loyalty remain an example for us all. Warren’s spirit and personality were larger than life and his infectious laugh and thunderous roar will forever remain in our memories, reminding us he was a jolly old soul who will be profoundly missed.Read more
