Warren was born in Los Angeles, lived in Lousiana, Texas, and Kentucky with his family, until settling in the McHenry County area in his early 20’s where he started a family of his own. He was a truck driver the majority of his life, most recently he drove for Sunset Cartage.
Warren to say the least, was an avid fisherman. If he was nowhere to be found, look on the lake, he’d be on his boat with a good cup of coffee and his rod cast. He enjoyed his passion for fishing with his family, his daughter, Kelly loved fishing for catfish with him. He also shared his fishing wealth with hundreds of his friends, by throwing a huge fish fry party after saving his daily catches for a year.
Warren is survived by his loving wife of nearly 32 years, Brenda; three children, Cheryl (April) Fite, Robert (Erica) Goodwin, Kelly Johnson; five grandchildren, Antwan, Jaklynn, Krysta, Katelyn, Daniel; his mother, Henrietta Johnson; two brothers, his twin, Wayne Johnson, Henry (Dena) Johnson; his sister-in-law, Donna (the late Bill) Douglas; and many nieces and nephews.
