Steven "Steve" Warren

November 7, 1949 — February 13, 2023


Steven (Steve) Clinton Warren, age 73 of Amarillo, peacefully zoomed through the gates of Heaven with a smile, radio cranked up, chestnut hair blowing in the wind, and a growl of his engine rumbling past on February 13, 2023. He felt his work was done here.

The funeral service will be held on Monday, February 20, 2023 at 2:00 PM at First Baptist Church in the sanctuary.  The Rev. Corky Holland will officiate. Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery with military honors rendered by The Volleys for Veterans.

Steve made his grand entrance on November 7, 1949 in Amarillo to his parents Nathan and Mary Joyce Simpson Warren.

Steve accomplished his goals during his short time with us. He graduated from Tascosa high school and West Texas A&M University. He honorably served in the Army while stationed in Korea. He worked for Santa Fe railroad and then as a rural mail carrier until he earned his Licensed Clinical Drug and Alcohol Counselor license. As an LCDC, he helped people recognize their value, find the courage to discover their strengths, to understand they belong, and to find their fight when most had given up on them. Steve spread joy in wonderfully nonchalant ways, such as passing out treats to the kids on his routes, checking in daily on his elderly friends who lived in the country, and always allowing people to speak until they were out of words.

He read any history book he encountered and voraciously soaked up knowledge. He loved the art of communicating via letter writing, but took it further animating perfectly chosen paper with his eloquent handwriting, using one of his many beloved fountain pens.

His most treasured accomplishments were his family. He met and fell in love with his best friend of 50 years, Mary Frances Gibson, while studying at Texas Tech University. On May 13, 1972 in Lockney, Texas they married and began their 50 year journey together. They raised four amazing heathens who turned into adults with seven beautiful children among them. He cherished his family without judgment. He gleefully completed more than his fair share of science projects and lovingly suffered through popular music by cranking his stereo louder than his kids, whether it was Dire Straits or Mannheim Steamroller he won. He loves his family with an enormous heart. He made certain everyone knew without a doubt he was available for them and to call him for anything – car help, mind-boggling facts, simply to rant and rave, or just to chat. He could fix anything with his amazing MacGyver like skills. One of his greatest joys in life was paying his children back by spoiling his grandchildren with love and exceptionally loud toys then sending them home.

Steve was preceded in death by his parents; his twin brother Tom Warren; and by his younger brother Gary Warren. He is survived by his loving wife, Mary (Murf); two daughters, Heather Hollifield and her husband Thomas of Austin and Jessica Warren and her husband Brett Nelson of Murphy; two sons, Dustin Warren and his wife Shanna of Lucas, and Chris Warren of Amarillo; by his seven grandchildren, Ian Warren, Eliza Hollifield, Josephine Holllifield, Henry Warren, Max Hollifield, Dax Nelson and Elinor Warren; and his best four legged buddies, his cocker spaniels, Charlie and Harry.

The family would like to thank BSA rehab staff who went above and beyond to lovingly care for him and his family.
