Charles D. Warren

Trooper Warren succumbed to gunshot wounds received 25 years earlier when he was shot twice in the head during a traffic stop. He had stopped a vehicle on SR 77 near Springville and was approaching it when the driver shot him twice with a .22 caliber revolver. The wounds caused Trooper Warren to fall into a coma for several weeks. Although he regained consciousness, he remained paralyzed, had difficulty speaking, and suffered serious health problems until succumbing to the wounds.
Trooper Warren had been with the agency for 13 years at the time of the shooting.

My Grandfather, Captain Glenn Wood Coffman Jr, was a UHP trooper with Trooper Warren. They both joined the UHP on the same day. August 19th, 1956. My Grandfather passed away before I was born, but I constantly read his autobiography about his life, especially about the time he served as a Trooper. In his autobiography, he recalls Trooper Warren, praising him on being a great man, and how he respected him and his standards. He recalled the day, when he heard over the radio that Trooper Warren was down and looking for the suspect in nearby fields. He visited "Chuck" in the hospital many times while he was recovering. My Grandfather spoke highly of him. My grandmother also told me stories about how Grandpa Glenn would tell her about Trooper Warren and what a great man he was.
Thank you for your service Trooper
