Douglas Ralph Warren(1960 - 2014)

Douglas Ralph Warren, 53, went home to be with his Lord July 6, 2014, in Klamath Falls, Ore. He died at his residence with family by his side. A celebration of his life will be in Keno Christian Church, 15210 Riveredge Road, Keno, OR, at 5 p.m. Friday, July 11, 2014. Douglas was born in Vancouver, Wash., Sept. 17, 1960, to Gerald and Janice Warren. He began school at Hockinson, Wash., attended McMinnville Elementary School, Thurston Junior High School (Springfield, Ore.), junior high and first year of high school in Walla Walla, Wash., and the 10th grade at Mazama High School here in Klamath Falls. He later attained his GED. Doug learned a good work ethic early in his life as he and his brothers picked strawberries, pole beans, and walnuts in season. He worked hard and bought a pony his first season. He always had a great love for children and animals. His children were his border collies Brittany, who lived long, loved Doug with her whole being and spent every possible moment at his side or in his truck "watching it," and his new girl Bella, who loved Doug, too, but wanted to play ball or Frisbee 24/7. Doug worked at an LP mill in Walla Walla and did new construction insulation in Tacoma, Wash. Then he moved to the Klamath Falls area and began working for Lower Klamath Seed Co. He later began working at Jeld-Wen, where he was employed for the last 15 years as a fork-lift driver. While there, he touched everyone he worked with in some special way. Many of his co-workers became close friends with whom he enjoyed camping trips and backyard barbecues. Doug held a deep love for his family, his friends and the great outdoors. He was known to pull over and fish in any creek along his way. He also always hoped to catch "The Big One" that would jump clear out of the water in front of his folks' cabin at Rocky Point! His big heart and quick smile were always extended to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Doug deeply enjoyed family trips to the coast and Christmas Valley with his four wheeler and was a valued member of his family Drag Boat Racing Crew. Doug was always quick to see someone in need and offer help. He was a beloved son and brother. He will be deeply missed, and our lives will not be the same without him. Doug is survived by his parents, Gerald "Jerry" and Janice "Jan" Warren; brother, David Warren; brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Terrisa Warren; nephew, Christopher Douglas Warren; aunt, Pamela Wright and uncle, Ted Morris; also many special lifelong friends too numerous to mention. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Ula Ralph and Della Morris and paternal grandparents, Douglas and Bertha Warren. We would ask that donations in memory of Doug be made to Klamath County Fire District No. 1. They not only responded in record time to assist him, but gave comfort to the family as well. Davenport's Chapel of the Good Shepherd, directors, now at 2680 Memorial Drive, Klamath Falls, OR 97601, 541-883-3458, is in charge of the arrangements.
