La Grande High School
Class of 1979

Memorial Day 2020

It has been 15 years, 3 months and 25 days since our country, his family and we lost our classmate and our friend Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark C. Warren of noncombat-related causes while on duty with the Oregon National Guard’s 3rd Battalion,  116th Calvary in Kirkuk, Iraq.  Mark enlisted in the U.S. Marines in 1981 and served our country for 4 years.  In 1990, he enlisted in the U.S. Oregon Army National Guard, and assumed his position as NCOIC of the 354th GOLD in 2002.   


Please take time to remember Mark and his family this Memorial Day. Messages, memories or photos can be left at

Mark’s Mother’s name is Wanda Jeanne Davies. 

His son’s names are Christopher Warren, Michael Warren, and Ryan Warren.

His niece is Erin Burgess-Waggoner, and nephews are Cole Burgess and Jack Burgess. (Tara’s children)

His former wife is Carol Dubosch Warren.      


Mark’s family who have passed: Father, Howard Warren (passed 1965); Stepfather Richard Davies (passed 2014); sister, Angela Jeanne Warren (passed 1995); sister, Tara Warren (passed 2020); and brother-in-law, "Rob" Robert Martin Burgess (Tara's husband passed 2013)


Don and Brenda Flowers invited everyone in our Class to gather at their place near Richland, Oregon in mid-June.  The COVID-19 pandemic has put a huge kink in everyone's plans.

The mid-June get-together is rescheduled to the weekend of August 14, 15 and 16.
