Mr. Warren was owner and operator of Warren Auto Repair for many years and served in the U. S. Army during the Korean War from 1950 until 1956. He was a wonderful son, husband, father and grandfather, and he loved his family dearly.
Lester enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and gardening. Growing tomatoes was one of his favorite hobbies as well as “tinkering” on anything. His favorite food was Opal’s biscuits, which she cooked for him, happily, for 59 years.
Survivors include his wife of 59 years, Opal Barnes Warren; children, Cindy & David Gilley of Carrollton, Ga., and Dennis & Candy Warren of Guyton, Ga.; brother-in-law, Rayford Barnes of Wedowee, Ala.; grandchildren, Heather Gilley of Newnan, Ga., Blake & Erin Gilley of Alpharetta, Ga., and Hunter Warren of Guyton, Ga.
