Birthdate & Date of Loss
|Date of birth:||March 11, 1921|
|Date of death:||November 10, 1944|
From the 1944 Lucky Bag:
Warren Howard Raber
"Ducky" will be remembered by a few as "that big quiet guy"; by others as "that conscientious, steady fellow who was always able to get things done"; and by still others, as "that dammed Fourth Battalion tackle." But those who really knew him will always see him as the old familiar friend who would pick up the "sack" when it was dropped in his lap by a classmate and finish the job dependably without thinking out loud. Outside of the women whom he was constantly fighting off (except of course the O.A.O. who traditionally played hard-to-get), he had few entangling alliances save with the Navy.
The Class of 1944 was graduated in June 1943 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
