American architect, he designed the Arlington Cemetery gravesite of President John F. Kennedy.

In the late 1950s his design for the US Embassy building in Bangkok, Thailand, won praise but was never implemented. Nevertheless the imaginative design helped cement his reputation as a brilliant architect. Warnecke and Kennedy had first met at Stanford in 1940 where Warnecke was a student and star football player and Kennedy was auditing courses at the university. Later, at the urging of Jacqueline Kennedy in 1962, the Kennedy administration hired him for several preservation projects in Washington, DC. In 1963, Kennedy appointed him to the Commission of Fine Arts. At Kennedy's death he was asked to design the gravesite.

Warnecke's talents and creativity were much in demand; by 1977 he had the largest architectural firm in the country.

He and his wife had three children.

He died from complications of pancreatic cancer on April 17, 2010 at his home in Healdsburg, CA.
