Deion Warren, (“D”) 50, of Gainesville, Texas, left this world peacefully August 3, 2022, in San Antonio, Texas surrounded by his loving family after a very short battle with cancer.
Deion is survived by his daughters, Britnee Warren and Derek Sicking, Baylee Williams and husband, Jacob and their children Max & Mason Williams of Gainesville; parents, Ronny and Margaret Warren of Gainesville; siblings, Jack Warren and wife, Rhonda of Gainesville; Eva Beaver and husband, Randel of Archer City; John T. Warren and wife, Misty of Aledo; Brian Warren and wife, Wayonia of Grand Prairie; Rene’ Lyons and husband, Owen of Wilson OK; Brett Warren and Amy Coontz of Denton; Mitzi Graves and husband, Tim of Gainesville; and a host of family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, William J. and Dovie Woolsey of Whitesboro; Bissel and Ida Warren of Berryville, AR.; and nephew, Andy Warren of Grand Prairie, Texas.
Deion was employed By HCI Commercial Construction of Dallas, Texas as a Senior Project Superintendent. Through the years he had completed many certifications which include A/C refrigeration, OSHA 10, ProCore, and most recently completed his PMP (Project, Management Professional) certification. Deion worked on many projects throughout the United States during his almost 30-year career. Over the years, Deion served as a mentor to many construction workers. He was known for his willingness to help others learn and for the way he continually poured into others on worksites across the country.
Deion was passionate about adventure and travel. He loved mountain biking, motorcycles, fishing, kayaking, camping, and scuba diving. He had also completed his open water scuba diving certification. Because of his love for the outdoors and travel, Deion recently became a property owner in Colorado. He had dreams of spending time camping and watching wild horses with his family, whom he loved so much. Those who knew him well would attest to his devotion to his parents and daughters. It was not unusual for D to talk to his mother and father for hours at a time, almost daily. Deion made sacrifices for his girls throughout his life. Being a father brought him more joy than he could have ever imagined. Loving his girls as his parents loved him was a testament to Deion’s devotion as a son and father.
Funeral services honoring Deion will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, August 8, 2022 at Jesus Christ Tabernacle Church in Gainesville, officiated by Rev. Jack Warren and Matthew Warren. Interment will follow at Dixie Cemetery in Whitesboro, Texas. A time of visitation for family and friends will be held from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Monday, August 8. 2022 at the church.

Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dion.
Deion will be greatly missed. It was a true pleasure having known and working with him. RIP bud.
Knowing you’re gone from this world, no longer just a phone call away, that the only way I’ll ever see your smile, hear your gentle voice or hold you in a brotherly hug is in a photograph, video or in my heart and dreams, is hard to accept. But I know you’re in God’s hands and I will see you again.
I love and miss you baby brother.
