A Buncombe Co. native, Virgil was a son of the late Ulus and Malissie Brown Warren. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Bette Warren; sisters, Reva Smith and Hazel Smith; and brothers, Richard and James Warren.
Virgil proudly served his country in U.S. Army during World War II. He worked as a tree trimmer in Michigan until retiring and returning to North Carolina.
