Warren was a proud Army veteran, having served during the Berlin Occupation, protecting President John F. Kennedy during his time in Berlin. While he did not share many of his military stories, he reminded us several times of seeing young Berliners dying to escape socialism. He was very patriotic, casting his last presidential vote several weeks before his passing. He was a proud member of VFW Post 8516 and supported the Wounded Warriors Project until Mom's passing in November.
Dad served many hats during his short stay here on earth; Sunday school teacher at Poca Fork Baptist Church, President of Frame Elementary PTA, President and founding member of the Channel 24 CB Club (Wounded Knee) and founding member of the Frame Volunteer Fire Department. His proudest accomplishments were his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Dad retired from Union Carbide in 1999 as a part of the T & I Division.
