He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the age of 26 in Grand Junction and remained faithful throughout his life, serving many missions and magnifying several callings.
He married Marilyn Reynolds on August 20, 1948 and they were later sealed in the Manti Utah Temple. After her passing, Warren married Dawna Jeppson on April 6, 1979 in the Salt Lake City Temple. Warren wanted to share two things in his life: his unwavering faith in and love of his Savior, Jesus Christ and his love for his family. He exemplified both wherever he went.
