Warren, Louis Patterson -age 83, of Lexington, Ky., formerly of Knott County, passed away at St. Joseph Hospital on Sunday, July 24, 2005. Louis was born in Springfield, Tenn., on June 11, 1922, the son of Overton S. and Martha Patterson Warren.  The Warren family moved to Hazard, Ky., when Louis was a small boy, where O.S. Warren worked as editor of the Hazard newspaper.  After graduating from Hazard High School, Louis enrolled in Lees College.  He enlisted in the Army Air Corps the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and trained as a pilot, flying the P40 and P47.  Louis was injured during training and granted a month's leave to recuperate.  Coming home on a Greyhound bus, he met a girl named Fern Smith from Smithsboro in Knott County.  Their conversation became a courtship that lasted through the rest of World War II, and the couple married when the war was over, on July 27, 1946.  Louis retured to college at the University of Kentucky and graduated with a degree in civil engineering.   He and Fern eventually settled in Lexington, where he worked as an engineer for IBM.  The couple lived in Lexington for 30 years.  Louis and Fern retired in 1978 and built a home overlooking Carr Creek Lake on what remained of Fern's family homeplace.  The couple spent many happy days there until her death 10 years later.  In 1994, Louis moved back to Lexington.  In his new home at Center City Condominiums, he was close to his doctors and many old friends. He immediately began adding new friends to his circle.  Although Louis and Fern never had children of their own, they were wonderful surrogate parents who shared their love with children of relatives and friends.  Louis was a vital member of Fern's family and, in later years, became the leader and the rock to whom everyone looked for direction and comfort.  Louis Warren loved God, his family, and his many friends.  He was above all things an honorable man, strong and compassionate.  He loved his life and everything in it.  He enjoyed good books, animals, little children, and laughing with people he loved.  He was active until the very end of his life and was always interested and involved, ready to go places and experience new things.    Louis made friends everywhere he went, and they were touched by his kindness, his generosity, and his courage.  Throughout his life, he faced illnesses with incredible bravery.  At the end, he faced death with certainty that the love of God and his friends and family would carry him through.  After a very brief illness, Louis passed away peacefully in his sleep -- just as he said he would want to go.  Louis Patterson Warren was preceded in death by his wife, Fern Smith Warren, his parents, two brothers, Ralph and Shelby, and one sister, Elizabeth.  He is survived by his niece, Karen J. Jones, sisters-in-law Joyce Blair and Ruth Smith, brother-in-law Manon Blair, and a host of friends who became his extended family.  Memorial services were held Sunday, July 31, at 3 p.m. at Meadowthorpe Presbyterian Church in Lexington, and Wednesday, Aug. 3, 11 a.m., at Hindman Funeral Services Chapel in Knott County.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Meadowthorpe Presbyterian Church or the Knott County Public Library.
