Jimmie Lee Warren, age 71, passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020 at his home. He was born to John W and Anna Watkins Warren May 2, 1949 in Greenville.
Jimmie wanted to serve his neighbors and country so he enlisted in the Navy and was a member of the Construction Battalion (Seabees) during the Vietnam War. He returned home from Vietnam and graduated with a double major from East Texas State University in Commerce. His desire to serve others was still strong, which lead him to join Biker’s for Christ and help found the Revelator’s Outreach Ministry. When Jimmie was not spreading the gospel, he enjoyed rebuilding hotrods and riding motorcycles, especially his beloved Harley Davidson.
Jimmie is survived by his wife, Charlotte, mother, Anna, children: David Warren, Katherine and husband Howard Rios, Cheryl and husband Richard Sanchez, Todd and wife Linda Broeske, and Joshua and wife Elizabeth Broeske. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Brooke Lewellyn, Kirsten Edwards, Rebekah Chisenhall, Ryan Rios, Matthew Billings, Robert Torres, Bryce Broeske, Samantha Paige, Christopher Torres, Tyler Broeske, Chase Broeske, Richard Sanchez, Colton Broeske, and Cooper Broeske. Jimmie has the following great-grandchildren: Grace Torres, Avery Sanchez, Jordyn Edwards, Richard Sanchez, and Beau Broeske.
