    Warren was born February 13, 1928, in Brooklyn, NY. He graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School. He received his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Union College in Schenectady, NY and an honorary PhD from Milwaukee School of Engineering in 1987. He was a lifelong ham radio operator and accomplished amateur astronomer. Warren (AF9Q) and Beverly (N9JVN) retired to the Cloudcroft, NM mountains to pursue their joint interest in the skies and enjoyed many years of astronomy research together. Warren and Beverly were deeply grateful to be welcomed and embraced by their Sacred Heart Mission and Piney Woods communities.

    A passionate learner and student, Warren's brilliant mind, kind and generous soul, wise and thoughtful counsel, and wry wit and humor are deeply missed by his family.

    In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Sacred Heart Mission Catholic Church, PO Box 236, La Luz, NM 88337.

    A celebration Rosary and Mass will be at the Sacred Heart Mission in Cloudcroft, NM on Friday, October 13, 2017. Rosary at 10:30 a.m. and Mass at 11:00 a.m.
