They raised their children in Stow, living here for most of Warren''s life. He dedicated his life to his family and his students. Since retiring after 35 years of teaching science at Kimpton Middle School, he continued weekly ballroom dance lessons and events with his wife Claudia for over a decade. Together they performed at many dance showcases after weeks of practice and preparation on the ballroom dance floor in their basement. He also enjoyed golf with friends throughout his life having his best year on the links in 2013. Generally quiet and reserved in public, Warren had a sharp sense of humor enjoyed by his family and friends. During his years as a teacher, he may be best remembered for his daily quotes and sayings that ranged from humorous to motivational that he wrote on the chalkboard. One of his favorites was "Shoot for the moon in all you do and even if you miss you will be among the stars." His wit and wisdom will be missed.
