Mr. Warren passed away Monday, August 30, 2021.
Omer Dean Warren was born January 22, 1941 in Lequire, Okla., the oldest of five children born to Omer Allen Warren and Lovie Juanita (Moore) Warren. The family moved to Bakersfield, Calif., where Dean attended school.
The family eventually returned to Noble, Oklahoma, where he met and married Jaynan Ingle. To this union, two children, Chris and Kim, were born, eventually settling in the Owasso area and later Noble.
At the time, Dean was working as a machinist for American Airlines, before opting for early retirement in 1982. Dean loved classic cars, and tinkering on automobiles. He built, bought and sold and even traded classics and muscle cars, and he loved anything and everything to do with corvettes.
His true passion was music, and Dean was a gifted musician and singer. Dean played simply for the love of music and spent many years as the front man for Dean Warren and The Country Four. He loved riding horses, and saddled up for many parades and land runs. Dean once rode a horse from Norman, Okla., to New Mexico, making friends and memories, all the way.
He married Sherry Taliaferro on January 19, 2008, and they made their home in Purcell. Dean was a family man first; he loved fiercely and was always on the lookout for his next adventure. He will be dearly missed!
He was preceded in death by his parents, Omer and Lovie Warren and brother, Johnnie Warren.
Dean is survived by his wife, Sherry Warren of the home; children, Chris Warren and wife, Carol, of Noble, Kim Warren of Muskogee, Gus Taliaferro of Purcell, Jeff Taliaferro and wife, Sherrill, of Oklahoma City, Anthony Taliaferro and wife, Aleshia, of Pauls Valley and Jeremy Taliaferro of Tacoma, Wash.; sister, Barbara Wilson and husband, John, of Gulfport, Miss.; brothers, Dennis Warren and wife, Barbara, of Noble and Terry Warren and wife, Pam, of Noble; grandchildren, Casey Warren, Paige Warren, Dillon Warren and wife Alyssa, Darren Warren, Heaven Lei, Blake Taliaferro, Emeryn Taliaferro, Kasyn Taliaferro, Ryan Taliaferro and Tylor Taliaferro and one great-grandson, Denton Warren, several cousins, nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends.
