His mother died when he was 1 year, 3 months and 24 days in the great Flu epidemic of 1918. His father was left with 3 young children to rise so his Dad left his young family with their maternal grandparents and went to San Francisco to get a job.
In San Francisco in 1923 his father remarried and went on to San Diego, CA and the family was finally reunited about 1924.
Warren graduated from Herbert Hoover High School where he would meet his 1st wife, Mary Lydia Powers Walker. They married in July of 1939 and their daughter was born in March 1940.
The strain of an overbearing mother-in-law and the death of Mary's 1st child Donald Eugene Walker in Sept 1942 were some of the reasons the marriage ended in divorce.
Warren had a job as a Tool and Die Maker at North Island a job that he would retire from, that was a lot of years riding the nickel snatcher...
He was in the US Army starting in May 1945.
Warren would meet his 2nd wife Maude Hunley about 1950 at the apartment complex where he lived, she would come to visit her sister Billy. Warren became a regular at Glenn's diner on El Cajon Blvd. where Maude worked. They married April 5, 1952. They were 6 months shy of their 50th wedding anniversary when Warren passed away of complications from diabetes.
Maude was unable to have children, coming from a family of 20 children she wanted to be a mother and they adopted 1st Ricky Warren Ouellette in 1960 and then Renee Ouellette in 1963. Warren was 43 years 3 month old when becoming a father for the 2nd time but it was a roll he relished.
