Grant Austin Warren

October 21, 1951 - February 26, 2021

Mr. Grant Austin Warren, age 69, of Kennedyville, MD, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 26, 2021, with his loving wife by his side at Perry Point VA Medical Center.

Born in Ferndale, MI on October 21, 1951, he was the son of the late Roy Austin and Margaret Alma (Wallace) Warren. Mr. Warren served 25 years on active duty in the United States Marine Corps. He received recognition for his service as an expert marksman on the rifle and pistol, a Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, the National Defense Service Medal, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, the Good Conduct Medal, and a Navy Unit Commendation. Mr. Warren held special positions as an Anti-Tank Assault man, 12 years as an Infantry Officer, and rappelled from helicopters.

His hobbies included hunting big game in Alaska, such as moose and caribou. Mr. Warren also loved fishing for salmon, skin diving and adding buildings to the house. His proudest moments were the birth of his children and going from being “enlisted” to “commissioned” in the military. Mr. Warren traveled to many places, including Florida, Hawaii, Utah, Subic Bay, Michigan, Sydney, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Cayman Islands, and Honduras. His special interests included John Wayne movies and Canadian music groups, including The Poppy Family. Mr. Warren’s most treasured gifts were a third generation Winchester rifle, and his bear rug. He would describe himself to someone as reliable and wants to be remembered for his love for the outdoors.

We’re thankful for Mr. Warren’s service to our country.

He is survived by his loving wife, Belle Elizabeth (Thompson) Warren; children, Amy Elwell (Robert) and Brett Warren (Donia); step-daughters, Michele Clapp and Linda May (Wayne); sisters, Sheila Weidenbach and Melanie McCarthy (Chris); and grandchildren, Symphony Longo, Madison Elwell, Ella, Addie, Gregory and Isaac Warren, and Caleb and Joey May.
