After a gallant and long battle, Warren, known to his friends and associates as “Hillsy,” died June 14, 2012, from complications of Parkinson’s disease at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson, Md. Leslie, his wife of nearly 30 years, was at his bedside when he died.
Warren was born and raised in Baltimore and worked in local television for most of his life before retiring 12 years ago. He attended Gilman School, where he made lifelong friends and was known for his talent in the technical aspects of theater productions.
Warren entered Princeton with the Class of 1961 and, after a leave of absence, re-entered as a member of the Class of 1963. Before graduating, he left Princeton to pursue what became a distinguished career in the production side of television.
The Baltimore Sun described Warren as “a top production manager at a Baltimore television station who helped shape what thousands of people viewed over four decades, from children’s programming to live sporting events.”
Leslie and Warren traveled all over the world, but she said his “favorite thing in the whole world was musical theater.”
He is survived by Leslie and his brother, J. Dixon Hills ’54. With them, we will miss this fine and talented person.
