Warren was born in Portland, Ore., to Charles Herbert and Irene McClure Cagle on Feb. 18, 1941.  As an infant, his parents moved to Exeter, where he grew to a young adult.  As a graduate of Exeter High School in 1959, he attended S.M.S. (now Missouri State University) on a scholarship; graduating in 1963.  He was a member of the SMS Swim Team and the R.O.T.C. program. Following his graduation, he was employed by the United States Government to work on high security mapping during the Cold War. Living and working in the urban area weren't ideal for Warren. Following one year in the city, he and Betty returned to his beloved Ozarks where he could enjoy fishing on Table Rock Lake, quail hunting and Indian Arrowhead hunting. Warren was a true outdoorsman and a gentle soul. He served the Neosho R-5 School District as a junior high science and math teacher from 1965 – 1995. Following retirement, he developed a mowing service to provide extra income for his retirement activities.  He also worked as a fishing guide on Table Rock Lake.  
He and Betty (Ware) were married on June 1, 1963, after dating through their high school and college years. In fact, he told Betty in their junior high school years, that he knew they would marry one day. The marriage celebrated 54 years on June 1, 2017. To this union, one beloved son,
Charles Scott Cagle was born in 1967. Scott married Laurel Goin on Sept. 8, 2001 and they now reside in Neosho.  Warren was baptized at the Rocketdyne Road Church of Christ in Neosho, where he worshipped since its’ establishment in Decembe, 1987. He served as an elder for three years and worked with the benevolence team for 12 years.  His faith and Christian fellowship were very important to him.  For those who knew him well, Warren will be remembered as a loving husband and father, who put others’ needs before his own and for his selflessness, unique sense of humor and thoughtfulness.  His passing will leave a big void, but many happy memories for those who knew him.
