March 13, 1930-Feb. 9, 2004

HERMISTON -Arthur C. Warren, 73, a lifelong Morrow County resident, died Monday, Feb. 9, 2004, at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Hermiston.

A private family service will be held later.

Mr. Warren was born March 13, 1930, on the family ranch at Gooseberry, to Clarence and Evelyn McDowell Warren. He started grade school at Gooseberry and graduated from Ione High School in 1949.

In 1951, he married Joanne Bothwell of Heppner. The couple were parents of five children and later divorced.

Mr. Warren farmed and ranched in the Gooseberry, Hardman and Bombing Range areas of Morrow County until the mid-1960s when he expanded his grain hauling to form Warren Trucking. He retired in 1982, but continued working cattle, driving a log truck and working for Columbia Improvement District.

Mr. Warren was an active outdoorsman. He enjoyed flying, hunting and fishing, but his priority was raising his children and spending time with his nine grandchildren and the many extra children who were part of his family.

He was a member of the Oregon Wheat Growers League, Oregon Cattleman's Association, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, Lodge 358, Willows Grange and Valby Lutheran Church.

Survivors include his children, David Warren and wife, Barbara, of Salem, Michael Warren and wife, Mary, of Astoria; Darlene Clevenger and her husband, Dick, of Tinnie, N.M., Marilyn Fuller and her husband, Bob, of Olympia, Wash., and Debby Warren of Heppner; grandchildren, Ryan Warren, Cory Warren, Michala Warren, Sean Warren, Sheridan Klinger, Shane Klinger, Kris Mies, Eric Mies and Daniel Mies; and two great-granddaughters.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
