Leonard was born on November 23, 1952 in Canyon to Edna and Leonard
Warren, Sr. He grew up in Amarillo and graduated from Palo Duro High
School in 1971. While in high school, he met Sandy Phillips and he later
married his high school sweetheart on September 2, 1972 in Amarillo. In
1980, Leonard and the family moved to Pampa when he went to work for
Serfco and has remained ever since.
Leonard was the definition of blue-collar. He was a hardworking family man
that did the best he could with what he had. Pops boys never went without
and that carried over to his grandkids. There was never a task too big or too
small for him. He always was just a phone call away for whomever needed
help, whether it be working on cars or something as simple as hanging a
blind. Leonard loved his boys and traveled all over the country to watch them
play sports whether it was college football, softball or watching them coach
his granddaughters. Pops was present at every practice and always had to get
his two cents in. Leonard was a man that could move mountains and will be
missed by many throughout this community.
Leonard was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Brenda McMillen; and
a brother-in-law, Jerry Copeland.
His survivors include his wife, Sandy Warren of the home; two sons, Jason
Warren and girlfriend Megan Hicks, and Jeff Warren and girlfriend Lindsey
Botello, all of Pampa; two sisters, Linda Copeland, and Glenda Holt and
husband David, all of Midwest City, Oklahoma; four grandchildren, Bryson
Warren of Fritch, Brooklyn Warren, Luke Warren, and Blayklee Cooper, all
of Pampa; a brother-in-law, Mac McMillen of Amarillo and his
grandfurbabies, Axel, Peanut, and Boomer; and other extended family.
