Avery “Adrian” Lamont Warren was born to Annie Warren and Marvin Edwards on November 21, 1976 in Henderson, Texas. He accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. Adrian graduated from Henderson High School. Upon completion of high school, he moved to Dallas, Texas.
Adrian loved all and above all, he was highly dedicated to his family. He was a greatly respected and proud man. Adrian was spoken upon and recognized for his personality, charisma, charm, and a smile that would light up any room. His favorite pass-time was hanging out and joking with his family and friends. He was a very meek and humble person who was dear and sweet to us all. He touched the lives of many and affected thousands with his gracious spirit and kind heart.
On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, God in his divine wisdom called home his beloved child. Passing from labor to reward, his humble soul responded quickly to the call of the Almighty God. His building had begun to leak and his soul had to move to a building not made by man’s hands.
