Tom Warren was called home at the age of 83 on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017, at Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington.

He was married in holy matrimony to the late Jerlean Bickham Warren. He was a member of New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church and confessed a spiritual walk with Christ. He loved his pastor and spoke well and highly of him.

Tom loved to dress neatly and he loved his cows and farm. Tom was a skilled, hardworking businessman, and he was loved by many.

Warren, Sherika Weary, Endia Badon and Makyra Tate; two sisters-in-law and one brother-in-law and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
