Obituary of Warren Hiller
Warren C. Hiller, 63, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 8 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Born on June 13, 1955, Warren was a lifelong resident of Bellmore and a graduate of Wellington C Mepham High School. He attended Adelphi University in Garden City where he majored in philosophy. While in college he acquired his pilots’ license and trained in aerobatics.

Following the world’s longest engagement, Warren wed the love of his life, Diane, in an intimate ceremony on July 3, 2013 in Nenana Alaska .
He was a music lover whose varied tastes ran from rock and roll to classical and jazz and he enjoyed nature and the great outdoors. He loved canoeing, camping and tried his hand at windsurfing and sailing. He was an avid cyclist.
With his gentle sense of humor, keen intellect and kindness, he touched many lives and will be sorely missed by all.
