Warren R. Anderson of Elgin, Ill., passed away Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center.
Born July 7, 1926, in Clinton, Iowa, the son of George Torval and Mabel (Blume) Anderson, Warren graduated from Clinton High School with the Class of 1944 and joined the U.S. Navy shortly thereafter.
Warren attended Iowa State Teachers College, graduating with the class of 1950. He taught for 38 years at Elgin High School as an industrial arts teacher, retiring from there in 2002. Warren was very active in the Illinois State Swim Competitions as a swim official, a position that he loved and enjoyed. He also officiated for the Special Olympics swim competition. He enjoyed motorcycles, and teaching for the motorcycle safety classes at Northern Illinois University.
He was an active member of his church, Burlington Methodist, and enjoyed spending time with the parishioners. After retirement Warren looked forward to the time that he spent with the Retired Teachers Group and his weekly breakfasts with the doughnut club.
Warren and Marjorie spent the past 10 years wintering in Desert Hot Springs, Calif., where they spent many happy moments with friends from the park, his Bible study group, and the choir group that he sang in.
