Hi I'm Bob Warren, Sr.

I'm a retired USAF Vet. Married to the same woman for 50 years, with 5 kids, 14 grand kids and 2 great grand kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Texas. I have made three major decisions in my life that were profound and impacted me more than anything else I have done. (1) I joined the United States Air Force when I was 17 and stayed in for 20 years 15 days and about 8 hours. (2) The next year I married my High School sweetheart, and as of this writing we have been married 50 years 7 months an 14 days. (3) Ten years later we joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That's more of a chronological list than a "most important" list. In the USAF I determined the manning for the various missions of the organizations I had been assigned to. It was called Manpower Management, another name for Industrial Engineer. With that experience and upon leaving the service I managed businesses ranging from 20- 30 employees to well over 200. I retired from the general work force two years ago and have been enjoying doing "whatever" since. If you do the math, you will see that I married very young by todays standards and most every body gave us little chance of surviving for very long. Thanks to a very kind, loving, forgiving, patient eternal companion it has lasted and will continue lasting as we grow together. I say "Eternal Companion" because we have been Sealed for all time and eternity. And that's where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints comes in. I have learned eternal principles that tell me who I am, who God the Father and Jesus Christ are and my relationship to them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of a man I will call GT. (He knows who he is ). He was my boss when I was stationed at Headquarters Tactical Air Command in the early '70s. I was a bit of a rounder in those days and enjoyed what most military members enjoyed doing. GT was different. I never heard him utter a foul word or risqué joke. He worked hard, got there early and left late. At lunch he would have these huge sandwiches made on home made bread. He was always easy to talk with about anything. And when we talked, the things he would say would make me feel good about myself. What he was doing was teaching me "Eternal Principals" every chance he got. In the 18 months we worked together, he converted me to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to serve others to the very best of my abilities.
