Warren Houghteling ’91

Warren Houghteling ’91, who preferred passion and honesty to small talk, died Jan. 8, 2017.

According to his family, “Warren was known for his love of theater, and in another life, he would have been a career actor. Instead he was a teacher, handyman, software developer, and computer programmer. His greatest job, challenge, and achievement was being a father. He gave it everything he had, and was proud to be a father first.

“Warren took great joy in being a part of countless plays and productions at the Los Alamos Little Theater. He greatly enjoyed the professional productions he did at the Santa Fe Playhouse, including his favorite, The Pillowman. His exuberance was contagious. He loved playing basketball, he loved to bike, he ran cross-country in school, and loved running, but his knees had other plans for him, and he traded it in for hiking.

“Warren’s life was a struggle, marred by tragedy, but his losses did not leave him bitter. He held on to his positive view of the world with extraordinary openness and vulnerability. He was a wonderful person, who will be missed. His depth did not always show, but when he shared it with you, you knew it was something extraordinary.”
