Warren lives in Seattle, Washington and is married with two daughters now out of college and off mom and dad’s payroll. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 1962 and volunteered for the U. S. Navy. Trained in nuclear weapons, most of his naval service was on the USS Oriskany (CVA-34). Discharged a Lieutenant in 1966, Warren worked the next 34 years for The Boeing Company where he became the AWACS Programs Finance Manager.
In 1974, Warren was elected to the Washington State House of Representatives. He lost reelection in 1976 by 9 votes out of over 32,000 cast becoming the last Republican elected from Seattle’s 43rd Legislative District. He remains active in politics chairing the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign in the 46th Legislative District.

A kindergarten teacher gave her class a ‘ show and tell’ assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object to share with the class that represented their religion. The first student got up in front of the class and said, ‘My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David.’ The second student got up in front of the class and said, ‘My name is Mary. I’m a Catholic and this is a Rosary.’ The third student got in up front of the class and said, ‘My name is Tommy. I am Presbyterian, and this is a casserole.’
