Newport News High School Class of @ 1948

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   We have still another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter this Saturday. 
  Warren Pope, Class of @ 1948, brother of Cecelia Pope Tennant of MN, passed away in Kilmarnock on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at the age of 83.

From The Daily Press - 07/19/14:

       Warren G. Pope
    KILMARNOCK - Warren G. Pope, 83, died peacefully on July 15, 2014.

He was a man who believed that you should live a good life, and that in the end, "it is not the years in a life, but the life in the years that counts." He lived his life to its fullest, and will be missed by those whose lives he touched.

A native Virginian, Warren was born and raised in Newport News. A graduate of Newport News High School, he attended Lynchburg College. He served his country as a Navy pilot and fought in the Korean War.

He returned to continue his education at Lynchburg College, where he met his wife, Mary Se Stone, a student from Newport News. Warren also attended the Newport News Ship Yard Apprentice School and was employed by the Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company.

Warren Pope
Warren's career was formidable. He was employed by the Department of Defense (DOD), where he worked directly for the U.S. Army. During his tenure at the DOD, Warren received his Masters of Science Degree in Personnel Administration from George Washington University.

In 1967, Warren moved his family to Reston, VA, to work for Computer Services Corporation, which was followed by a move to Booze, Allen and Hamilton, where he was employed as the youngest Partner / Senior Vice President in the company. In 1979, Warren started his own company in Vienna, VA, Management Systems Designers (MSD) Inc.

In the early 1990s he sold his company and semi-retired. By the mid-1990s he officially retired and moved to Kilmarnock. The Popes home on Dividing Creek was host to many years of family events and wonderful memories that will be forever cherished. Warren loved his community and was a member of Wicomico Parish Church. He believed it was important to preserve the area's history, which led to his successful grant writing efforts to restore Rice's Hotel/Hughlett's Tavern in Heathsville, VA.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Grafton and Oleta Pope, his wife, Mary Se Stone Pope, and his daughter-in-law, Marcy Pope.

Warren is survived by two sons, Warren G. Pope, Jr. (Todd) of Kilmarnock, and Geoffrey L. Pope and his wife, Wendy Schumacher Pope of Williamsburg. He leaves to cherish his memory three grandsons, Matthew Pope of Kilmarnock, Brady and Zachary Pope of Williamsburg, and his sister, Cecelia Tennant, of Minneapolis, MN.

The family will celebrate Warren's life privately. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to: Hospice of Virginia Foundation, 1700 Bayberry Court, Richmond, VA 23226. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at

 O God, Our Help in Ages Past

Words by Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David, 1719 (based on Psalm 90)
(17 July 1674 - 25 Nov 1748)

Music, St. Anne, by
William Croft, 1708
(10 Dec 1678 - 14 Aug 1727)

1. O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.

2. Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defense is sure.

3. Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

4. Thy Word commands our flesh to dust,
“Return, ye sons of men”:
All nations rose from earth at first,
And turn to earth again.

5. A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

6. The busy tribes of flesh and blood,
With all their lives and cares,
Are carried downwards by the flood,
And lost in foll’wing years.

7. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly, forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the op’ning day.

8. Like flow’ry fields the nations stand
Pleased with the morning light;
The flow’rs beneath the mower’s hand
Lie with’ring ere ’tis night.

9. O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home.
