After meeting the love of his life, Shirley Jean Good, they were united in marriage on June 20, 1954.

He also loved coaching, including girls softball, basketball and track.

Warren was hardworking and family-oriented, opinionated but gentle. He enjoyed the simple things in life, like spending time with his family and taking Sunday drives. He collected tools and enjoyed tinkering and yardwork. Warren was a member of the Lions Club, Trinity Lutheran Church in Marshalltown and the Iowa Coaches Hall of Fame.
