Warren moved to Ida County in 1947 and on July 22, 1947, he was united in marriage to Irene McGee at the Evangelical Free Church in Battle Creek, Iowa. The couple made their home in rural Ida Grove, Iowa and were blessed with two children, Ruth Ann and Rodney. Warren was engaged in farming for 52 years raising cattle, hogs, and crops. In 1980 he retired from farming and the couple moved into Ida Grove where Warren drove cars for Holmes Motors for many years.  

Warren served as a director of the Grant Center School in Ida County for a number of years. In 1978, Warren and Irene donated the Grant Center School to the Ida County Historical Society which is now located out in Moorehead Park. He was a former member of the Kiron First Baptist Church where he served as an usher, trustee and deacon over the years. Warren enjoyed going out for supper with friends and family as well as playing board games.
