J Warren Harrington

June 29, 1940 – April 16, 2022


Until we meet again, we bid au revoir to Joseph Warren Harrington, PhD. A doctorate in theology and longtime resident of Canton, Ohio, Professor Harrington taught at Walsh University for 34 years until his retirement in 2008. Warren was devoted to and is survived by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Elizabeth “Tish”, and their two sons, Tom (Beth) and James (Cara).  He also leaves his grandchildren, Matthew and Amelia (Tom & Beth), and Marianne and Riley (James and Cara). Warren was not only a man filled with love, possessing a high intelligence and a quick wit, but he was also a man of compassion, warmth and joy, with an unyielding faith in God. We were blessed to be in his life. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects during calling hours at Wackerly Funeral Home in Canton, OH from 5pm – 8pm on Thursday 4/28/2022 and attend a Mass of Christian burial at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Uniontown, OH with Fr.
