Warren and his wife, Judy, were married July 20, 1969 and raised three sons, Kip, Kurt and Kasey, who all followed their dad into the military. Warren loved to garden, fish, travel - and the more times he got lost on the back roads, the more he loved it.  But most of all, he loved his family.

He was in death by his parents; parents-in-law and sister-in-law, Sharon Wehrer.
