He was a veteran of World War II serving in the U.S. Navy Seabees stationed in the Philippines. Warren was a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Monongah, and the White Hall Lions Club. He enjoyed mowing his lawn, playing golf and walking Apple Valley Golf Course with his dog Patches.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Fred Huffman; and a sister, Fern Thompson.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Monongah with Father Steve Joseph as celebrant.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
