Leon "Lee" Warren 1927—2018
Leon "Lee" Warren, born and lived his entire life in Rockford, Illinois, passed away suddenly on Saturday, September 8, 2018, six days short of his 91st birthday. He was the devoted husband and best friend for 63 years of Sandra (Cutler) Warren and a very proud and loving father to Martha (Michael) Davidson and Nancy Warren, grandfather to Arin (Ryan) Stevens, David (Alexandra) Davidson, Jeffrey (Joanna) Davidson and Jonathan (Emily) Davidson, and great-grandfather to Maxwell, Madeline, and Mila Stevens, Jack, Beau, Eloise, Benjamin, Poppy, and Clara Davidson. Lee founded Warshawsky's Auto Parts in Rockford, where the business existed for 70 years. Lee was very active for many years in the life of the Jewish community in Rockford. He served as president of Temple Beth El for 2 years, headed the Rockford Jewish Community Council, and led several UJA drives. Lee was a lover of travel and a big fan of anything Disney. He will always be remembered for having a magic trick up his sleeve and a joke of the day.
