James E. Warren of Lombard, Illinois, died earlier today, , at the age of 81.
Jim's contribution to Illinois chess as a player, organizer, patron, and volunteer is truly unparalleled. He is survived by his wife Helen, a co-founder of the Illinois Chess Association.
For more than three decades, Jim worked for Western Electric (later AT&T Technologies, the forerunner of today's Alcatel-Lucent) until a 1989 heart attack forced him to take an early retirement.
Playing in the Chicago Industrial Chess League a couple years after its founding in 1957, Jim was the CICL's first Expert player at a time when most teams were happy to have one Class A player on their team.
