Warren Leo Abramowicz © Hart Funeral Home Submitted by: Jo Aguirre
Hulbert, OK-Warren Leo Abramowicz's life began in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on March 9, 1944. He grew up in a close-knit and loving family that would sustain and influence him throughout his life.
In 1964-1968, Warren served his country by joining the Air Force and serving as a hospital medic at Lackland Air Force Base in California during the time of the Vietnam War. After leaving the service, he attended Northeastern State University, completing his Bachelor and Master's degrees in Education and Counseling in 1975.
After graduation from college, Warren became a teacher at Indian Meridian VoTech and the student counselor for the Hulbert school system. He worked in the Hulbert schools for 23 years, and everyone in the Hulbert area fondly knew him as "Mr. A." In such a small community, he was known and loved by many. It was not uncommon for him to go into a store and meet former students!
During Warren's childhood, little did he know that he would later reunite with one of his classmates and friends to marry the love of his life, Sandra. Warren and Sandra grew up in the same neighborhood and played together as children. As 6-year olds, Sandra was his first girlfriend! Warren and Sandra married in Tahlequah on September 2, 1989, surrounded by their families.
Family was very important to Warren, and he loved and spoiled his wife Sandra; his 2 stepchildren, Melissa and Paul; and his 6 grandchildren, Sarah, Nathan, Isaac, Joel, Matthew and Tony. Each grandchild loved their ornery Pepaw who tickled them, roughhoused with them, took them fishing, and called them stinker-pot, buzzard bait, and ornery britches. In fact, all children were drawn to Warren and enjoyed being the center of his playful attention.
Warren and Sandra attended the Free Will Baptist Worship Center in Tahlequah, and many a child there was also lovingly bestowed with the title of "stinker pot." Warren had a close relationship with the Lord, and had a servant's heart. At Free Will Baptist Worship Center he served as an elder, secretary, typed bulletins, played guitar and made announcements, led Sunday School, and served in whatever capacity the Lord required. During the last year of his life, Warren developed a chronic kidney disease that prevented him from performing many of his church duties and limited the activities he loved, such as fishing, travel, woodworking, and pottery. Despite his trials he remained faithful to the Lord and loved his family dearly.
Warren passed from this earthly life on June 20, 2008 in the arms of his wife, Sandra. Warren is survived by his wife, Sandra Abramowicz of Hulbert; mother, Velda Keefer of Sand Springs; sister Sharon Tribble and husband Glen of Sand Springs; brother Donnie Kennicutt of Sand Springs; sister Debbie Jones of Sand Springs; stepchildren Melissa Dalton of Jenks and Paul Evans and wife Lori of Americus, Georgia; grandchildren Sarah, Nathan, Isaac, Joel and Matthew Evans, and Tony Dalton; and a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, and friend who will dearly miss him.
