Johni Lee Warren was born in Bakersfield, CA on July 9, 1947 to Omer and Lovie (Moore) Warren. He served honorably in the United States Army and was a self-employed barber. He owned Advance Barber College in Oklahoma City. He not only instructed his students, he had a remarkable 100% placement for the students who graduated. He returned to the barber shop and was self-employed at Razor's Edge in Bonham, TX. He said, "You never go to work, if you love what you do." He retired in November, 2016. Johni married Norma Christine (Hughes) Warren 38 years ago in Del City, OK. He dearly loved his family and friends, old cars, car shows, and guitars. He loved taking his boys and nephews' deer hunting. He, however, never shot an animal. "Hunting" for him, was being with his family. Johni had a joke for every occasion. One granddaughter called him "Funny Grandpa."

Left to cherish his memories is wife, Norma Warren of the home; sons, Parrish Warren of Houston, TX and Zachary Holland and wife Amanda of Bonham, TX; 3 grandchildren, Micah Warren, Logan Kretlow, and Kolby Jistel; brothers and stepbrothers, Omer Dean Warren, Dennis Warren, Terry Warren and Bud Ursy; sister and stepsisters, Barbara Wilson, Margie Hill, and Jonnie Pounds; step mother, Nora Bell Ursy; nieces, nephews, and cousins; and his perfect dog, Uggie. He is preceded in death by his parents and a step brother.
