Warner fought in both World War II and the Korean War. He served as the Secretary of the Navy and then represented the commonwealth in the senate from 1979 to 2009. He died of heart failure last month at the age of 94.

At least 60 current and former members of the Senate were expected to attend the funeral. President Joe Biden was among those who will speak.
