Warren Lorenz Rosin, age 80, passed away January 3, 2023 at Meadowbrook in Black River Falls,
Warren was born November 14, 1942 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota to Lorenz and Mable (Nordby) Rosin.
He attended country grade school near Barrett, Minnesota through the fourth grade. In 1954, Warren,
along with his parents and brother Roger Rosin, moved to Howard Lake, Minnesota where he grew up
on the family farm.
Warren graduated from Howard Lake High School in 1960, then attended Moorhead State University
where he earned a BS in physical education. He also attended Winona State University and earned an
MS in Administration.
His first teaching job was in Gilmanton, Wisconsin, where he was the physical education teacher and
athletic director, and served as the coach for basketball, cross country, and baseball.
Warren married Priscilla Marie Davidson on August 29, 1964. They eventually settled in Black River Falls,
Wisconsin in 1969 to raise a family.
Warren taught physical education at the junior high school and eventually became the middle school
principal. He also served as the head coach for the Black River Falls Tigers football team for 29 years, and
led the team to State in 1999. In 2000, Warren was inducted into the Wisconsin Football Coaches
Association Hall of Fame.
Warren had a great love for coaching football, but above all, he took great pride and enjoyment in
working with his players and fellow coaches. His wife Priscilla attended every game, missing only one in
29 years. His daughters also supported their father on the sidelines, taking stats for a number of years.
Warren had many other passions in his life as well. He loved to golf with the guys on Thursdays, travel
with his wife and family, and attend games of his favorite sports teams—the UW Badgers and
Minnesota Vikings. He was a member of the Black River Falls Lions Club, Rotary Club, and Interfaith
Caregivers. He was an active member in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Black River Falls. Warren had
a great passion for carpentry, building and remodeling the house that he and his family lived in, as well
as building projects for his family like a miniature basketball court, treehouses, a potting shed, and a
playhouse for his granddaughters.
Warren was very devoted to his family and his friends, and loved them all very much; creating many
treasured memories which he often reflected on until his passing.
Warren is survived by his wife, Priscilla; his daughters, Carrie Rosin, Becky (Clay) Hammes, and Cindy
(Neil) Kampen; his grandchildren Elizabeth and Taylor Stanley, Lauren and Rachel Hammes, and Kendall
Kampen; his brother Roger (Holly) Rosin and nieces and nephews.
