      Thank you note   08/24/2017

      I receive this thank you note from Peggy Warden  Mr. Stadler,  I didn’t post this under announcements, but you can if you want.  Thank you very much for sending the card, money and letting the members know about Chris’s death.  The members on Hagshouse are a special group of guys.  I knew that you all have really big hearts from past experiences when I was helping with charity auctions, etc. But I didn’t know what to say when I got a card with a $500.00 check because Chris had been inactive for a good while now.  Thank you all for the money and the kind words that were written about him on the website.  It was a great comfort for our family to read through each post.  It is just amazing that guys, most of whom I have never met in person, hundreds of miles away, reach out to help with prayers and money.  Chris and I were very thankful for being able to have come to know allot of you through e-mail and phone conversations, being part of your website and running the store.  Life without Chris is the hardest thing in life that I have ever had to do, but it sure does make it easier to bear with friends like you.  There has got to be a big meeting place reserved up in heaven where all the Hagshouse guys get together.  God bless you all!  Sincerely, Peggy Warden P.S.  Chris had signed me up with the Hagshouse member name of “Methuselah”.  As some of you may know, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible.  Lol!  He did have a sense of humor.

Loss fo a Hagshouse Member

26 posts in this topic

I received very sad news today and want to let everyone know about the death of a longtime member "212" Chris Warden of Hags House. Below is a partial note I received from his brother this morning. Anyone who knew Chris appreciated the help he would offer to its membership, including myself. Recent new members will find lots of very detailed posts on various builds he did and most helpful was the troubleshooting he was able to do, solving lots of problems for us along the way.

R.I.P. my friend and heartfelt condolences to his wife Peggy and the entire Warden Family.

 

Hi, this is Chris 212's little brother Chuck. 

Chris passed away last week. He had been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which had already spread to his bronchial tubes. He knew the odds were slim and decided not to go through treatment. Chris and Peggy had been told he would last 2 to 4 months but he held out over à year and died at home. 

His wishes are to be cremated and to have his ashes buried under à pine tree at his house outside La Vernia,TX. 

I asked Peggy and she Said it would be ok if I informed this forum of his passing. I do feel it would be better if a regular member did that. I live in Sweden and was planning à trip here in september but came as fast as I could. Chris just got too worse too fast.      Take care. Henry C Warden

Very sad news. Chris was a great help to me and I held him in the highest personal regard. He was a wonderful online friend and never failed to provide advice and counsel. He wrote in PM's if the issue was personal ,and I felt cheated when he decided to relinquish his role here. This is obviously worse and I extend my deepest condolences to Peggy and his other family and friends. RIP Chris.

Sad news indeed. Out of the blue 212 popped into mind last week. Wondered how he was doing. He was smart beyond compare to most on here, yet could dumb down explaining everything to where us less knowledgeable could understand what he was telling us. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest in peace my friend.

I never met him, but through messages and posts over the last twelve years I feel like I knew him. He gave so much to this hobby and I learned so much from him.  What a loss, I hope he rests in peace.

Here is Chris Warden (212) Obituary http://tinyurl.com/ycnatdcs

Christopher Lee Warden

Christopher Lee Warden, 59, passed away peacefully in his home in La Vernia, Texas, on Monday, July 17, 2017, surrounded by his family.

He was an auto mechanic, but he could repair just about anything else too. Christopher was always ready for another project and helped anyone in need. His motto was, do one thing, do it right, and then do something else.

He was preceded in death by his father, Henry C. Warden.

Christopher is survived by his wife of 39 years, Peggy (Stevens) Warden; mother Dorthy Warden; daughter Jennifer Racey; grandsons Zachary Poston, Kriegen Racey, and Roman Racey; brother Henry C. Warden Jr. and wife Anja; stepsisters Carolina Warden and Valeska Warden; stepbrother Adam Warden; a special aunt, Faye Cooper; and many other family members.

A private family service will be held to honor his memory.

We are all very thankful to have been able to have him with us for the past year since his lung cancer diagnosis, said his family. The family would like to thank Nurses In Touch Hospice in Floresville for their help.

Chris was a tremendous help to almost everyone here on hags.  I never got the pleasure and honor to meet him but knew his character was one of the best that I was privileged to know thru the forum.  I can't find the words to say what a loss his passing will be.  My prayers go out to his wife and the entire family.  I know he loved his wife, I think we had talked about it a couple of times.   A friend that I will always remember.

This is indeed very sad news. Even though I never had the privilege of meeting Chris in person, we did talk a few times on the phone and conversed through PMs here on Hags. He was always willing to help anyone that needed it and was a well respected member of the homebrew community. He gave so much of his time, effort and knowledge to this site as did his wife Peggy and it would not be what it is today if it were not for the both of them. My thoughts and prayers go out to Peggy and Chris' entire family. R.I.P Chris
