Carlton Daniel ‘Dan’ Paulmier Warren


Carlton Daniel “Dan” Paulmier Warren JD ’62 died at Farmington Square in Beaverton on May 23, 2017, following a long struggle with dementia and Alzheimer’s. He was 83.

Dan was born January 7, 1934, in Vancouver, Washington, the youngest son of Wilfred Henry Warren and Catherine (Paulmier) Warren. A car enthusiast, Dan worked as an auto mechanic while attending Portland’s Benson Polytechnic High School. After graduating, he spent two years in the U.S. Army before returning to Portland. Dan worked as a clerk at the downtown branch of the U.S. Post Office to put himself through college and law school.

Dan raced in the first Rose Cup Race at Delta Park. His ever-increasing interest in sports cars led him to join the Cascade Sports Car Club, where he met his future wife, Ruby Hutchison, in 1958. They were married in 1963. Soon after, Dan started his own law firm, Solomon & Warren, which later became Warren Allen LLP. He retired from the firm in 2004.

Dan enjoyed reading, golfing, and gun collecting. He was an active supporter of the NRA and an enthusiastic hunter of wild game, including moose, elk, and boar. Dan especially enjoyed competing in Cowboy Shooting Club events. He earned a pilot’s license and later became a member of the Tektronix Air Club. Dan served as president of the board of the Cedar Mill Community Library and treasurer of the International Conference of Northwest Sports Car Clubs, held membership in the Austin-Healey Club, and was a founding member of the Morgan Owners Group.

Dan is survived by his wife, daughters Danette Schuh and Cynthia Warren, sister-in-law Georgina Warren, and niece Cathy.
