Warren loved every aspect of his Windswept Farms, it became his favorite and most loved place to be. He could spend hours horseback riding, walking fields, tending to chores. It wasn’t really work because he loved it so much. He also held a large place in his heart for raising dogs, starting first with beagles, the springer spaniels, and eventually labs.
Warren was also involved in the community and many different organizations. He served as Oneonta’s Water Commissioner in the early 1970s. He was also a member of the Main Street Baptist Church in Oneonta.
Warren is survived by his wife of 50 years, Carole Schuman of Oneonta; his son, Eric Warren Schuman, and his wife Dawn, of Oneonta; his daughter, Dr. Catherine Carole Schuman of Arlington, Mass.; his two beautiful twin granddaughters, Sabonne and Simone Schuman of Oneonta; and many cousins.
