Larry Llewellyn Warren

1950 – 2022

Larry Llewellyn Warren passed away peacefully in his Edmond home on Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022.

Larry was born in Oklahoma City on February 4, 1950, to June and Chester Warren. Some of his greatest childhood memories were of playing at the creek near his home, and at Douglas Park with his Horace Mann buddies.  He graduated from Harding High School in 1968.  He attended Oklahoma State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in sociology in 1972 and a master’s degree in psychology in 1974.  He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity.  Larry loved everything OSU.

Larry began his career as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor for the State of Oklahoma.  He spent the last thirty years as a Licensed Practical Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the Oklahoma City area. Larry devoted his entire career to helping people.

Larry met his soul mate and best friend, Mary P. Myers, in 1975, and they were married on June 10, 1978. Together they raised three beautiful daughters, Molly, Emily, and Katie, who were the absolute joys of his life. Larry made sure his family knew what was important—love, kindness, and curiosity about life.  Many people have told us that he was the kindest man they ever met. He was such a sweet, lovely soul.

Larry was passionate about many things. Nature was at the top of the list. He loved the mountains of Colorado, the open spaces of New Mexico, the deserts of Arizona, the Wichita Mountains, and watching sunsets from the dam at Lake Arcadia. Larry was an original backpacker. He respected every living creature, whether it be a dog or a bear or an insect, and he delighted in teaching his kids and grandkids about the beauty of the natural world.

Larry loved books. As his friends knew, he was always ready to engage in a philosophical discussion or share his infinite wisdom about the universe. He had that precious opportunity several times during the last few weeks of his life. He also enjoyed great music, especially the Eagles, Bob Dylan, and John Denver. Larry loved golf, his guitar, and his truck.

Larry felt he was the luckiest man on earth.  He was “Daddy” to his girls, and “Hat” to his grandchildren. He adored them all, and told them often. He is survived by his wife Mary, his daughters and sons-in-law, whom he also loved, Molly and Mike Largent, Emily and Shaun Fiaccone, and Kate and Michael Howell. He is also survived by his precious grandchildren, Mason, Lucy and Ellie Largent, and Scout and Charlotte Fiaccone, and five granddogs, who fought for his undivided attention at our weekly Sunday dinners.

He is also survived by his dear sister Judy Pearson, brothers-in-law Dr. Andy Myers and Paul Pipes, sister-in-law Jackie Warren, in-laws Sandy and Brandon Clabes and Rhonda and Phil Moser, and his much-loved nieces and nephews. He also treasured life-long friends Brent, John, and Danny.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father, brother Steve Warren and sister Janie Pipes.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, April 25th at 10:30 AM at Crown Heights United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City.

In lieu of flowers, please honor Larry by taking a walk through the woods, petting your animals, or watching Forrest Gump.
