After graduating from high school, Warren served in the US Army during World War II, leaving with the first group of 18 year-olds from Mercer County. During his service, he served in the 11th Airborne Division in New Guinea, Leyte, Luzon, and Japan.

Upon delivery, Warren was kissed by the Artillery Colonel. On May 13th, 1950 he married his wife, the late Doris (Goroncy) Aul who passed away July 1st, 1986.

He was a life member of the Reynolds VFW and National Rifle Association, as well as the former President of the Sharon Farmer’s Market. He formerly played in the Greenville Symphony and various other bands. He wrote many poems and songs, and was the author, composer, and lyricist of the musical “Pennsylvania for Me.” He enjoyed creating metal artwork with his welding talent.
