Following his graduation in 1958 he attended Mankato State University for one year and then returned to Geneva to work.

Warren was very involved within the community and served on the Geneva Fire Department, coached the little league team and was a baptized and confirmed member of the Geneva Community Lutheran Church. In his spare time, he enjoyed a round of golf, playing on a fast pitch softball team and bowling league. A yearly trip to the Laughlin/Las Vegas with his wife hosted years of memories for the couple.
