Warren Jeffrey Froneberger

June 18, 1947 ~ July 19, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Mr. Warren Jeffrey Froneberger, 76, of 108 Miller Street, York, South Carolina, departed this life on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at Atrium Healthcare Main, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Born June 18, 1947 in York, he was a son of the late William Blair Froneberger and Minnie Elizabeth Williams Froneberger.

            Warren attended York County Public schools and graduated from Jefferson High School in 1964. Following high school, he graduated with his bachelor’s degree in 1968 from North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina.  While at North Carolina Central University, he became a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Tau Psi Chapter in April of 1966, and was promptly dubbed “Juky the Que.”  After graduation, he worked for many years as a technical illustrator at HomeLite Industries. He also taught for a number of years at John McKnitt Alexander Middle School and West Charlotte High School.

            Art was Warren’s true passion. He studied portraiture from several known artists in North Carolina, New York, and Florida. Warren created numerous works of art, even illustrating a novella for his family member. He loved to sing and sang with a lovely tenor voice. He would also sing on occasion at his church, Wesley United Methodist Church, where he was a faithful member until his health failed. Warren enjoyed serenity music and would make CDs for others to achieve relaxation and overcome depression. Additionally, Warren took care of his sister Brenda when she was sick—when you saw one, you saw the other.

            Warren had a soft, but tenacious spirit. He overcame his speech impediment through his own merit, using self-help books. He was even president of one of the local Toastmaster chapters, at one point, to become better at speaking.

            In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, William Benjamin Froneberger.

            Surviving to cherish fond memories are his sister, Brenda Marguerite Froneberger of the home; a brother, Kenneth Froneberger (Bessie) of Gastonia, North Carolina; special cousins, James Williams of York, South Carolina, Angela Williams of Rock Hill, South Carolina, and Deanna and Wallace Paysour of Kings Mountain, North Carolina; and two nieces, Kymme and Kendra; as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
