Dr. Charles Joseph Warde 1940-2009

Posted on October 7, 2009.

Dr. Charles Warde, who previously served as professor and chair of the Chemistry Department, passed away on Sept. 30, 2009.

Dr. Warde was born on July 3, 1940, in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland, the eldest of four children. He was raised in Dublin and educated there, earning his undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from University College. He emigrated from Ireland with his wife, Celene FitzGerald Warde, in 1969. During his tenure in the Chemistry Department at HPU, Dr. Warde earned many teaching accolades, including “Professor of the Year.”

Dr. Warde was a true Irishman; he loved to talk to people and make them laugh. His humor and his ability to tell a good story were legendary. He loved all languages and music as much as he loved the sciences. He had a passionate love of poetry.

Dr. Charles Warde will be greatly missed by the High Point University family and all who knew him.
