Warren was a true Louisiana sportsman who loved hunting, especially dove and duck, and fishing, especially sac-a-lait. He enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden and watching it grow. Warren was also an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching LSU, the Saints, and his grandsons play sports. As any true Louisianan, he knew how to cook. His daughter’s favorites were catfish couvillion and shrimp and crab stew.
