Joe Markham Warren of Lynnville, TN, passed away Thursday, July 29, 2021 in Colorado. He was born in Frankewing, TN on April 1, 1935 and was 86 years old. He was a member of the Odd Fellows Hall Church of Christ and Still Waters Cowboy Church.

Joe spent his life raising cattle a person could be proud of, but the true pride of his life was his kids and grandkids. Every conversation he had would eventually turn to bragging about his family members. Joe never met a stranger, and he formed long-lasting friendships that spanned the country. He wasn’t afraid of hard work, and passed that ethic on to everyone around him. While raising cattle was a constant throughout his life, he also enjoyed 25 years in real estate, and was well respected in the show cattle world. He instilled that love of showing cattle in his kids and grandkids, cheering them on from the sidelines even up to the week preceding his passing. Joe’s faith, sense of humor, and generosity left a lasting impression on everyone lucky enough to know him.
