Lonzo Demond Warren Thomas was born October 2, 1976 in Davenport, Iowa to Lonzo Warren Jr. and Marilyn Warren Thomas. Although he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy it never stopped him from enjoying life, such as graduating from North High School in 1998.
Lonnie and his mother were inseparable; he could always depend on his mother’s love and care! They had a bond that couldn’t be put into words. Lonnie was most happy hanging out with his dad watching football, baseball, riding in his father’s car or enjoying daily walks as his dad pushed him in his wheelchair. He also enjoyed hanging out with his brother, Dennis and his friends. He loved spending time with his special aunts, Janice, Dee Dee, Ruth and Gloria.
Carolyn Burrage was his best bud. He couldn’t get enough of her “tormenting”(sarcasm) him. Every time his mother would drive past her house he would in his own way let his mom know that she needed to go back so he could see Carolyn.
When Lonnie was watching his sports, it was a known fact that you better not bother him or you would catch his wrath. He was also a pure “jokester." His Uncle Larry, who he was crazy about, was often one of his many victims of his jokes. He loved playing tricks on people and when caught would laugh out loud about it.
Fishing, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors were Lonnie's favorite pastimes. Lonnie also took delight in listening to gospel music. He couldn’t get enough of Sister Hickman’s personal concerts.
Lonnie was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather: Fred Thomas; his paternal grandparents; Lonzo Sr. and Mertis Warren.
To celebrate his life, Lonnie leaves his parents: Lonzo Warren Jr. and Marilyn Warren Thomas, brother Dennis (Danielle) Thomas, grandmother; Ruthie Thomas and a host of dearly loved uncles, aunts, cousins, nephew, niece and friends.
