Former Frisco City Manager George Purefoy said this of former Frisco Mayor Bob Warren after learning of Warren's death on Monday, March 13: "His heart was dedicated to do what was best for the citizens of Frisco…"

Bob Warren served as Frisco’s mayor from 1989 to 1996 and had been a city councilman before that. Under his leadership, the Frisco City Council compiled the city’s first comprehensive plan and was one of the first municipalities in the state to dedicate a half-cent sales tax toward economic development with voter approval. Warren also helped to bring in the Stonebriar Center, an economic victory for Frisco, fought to bring Collin College to the city and helped establish the Frisco Heritage Association.
