Mr. Warren was born Nov. 29, 1923, in Evant to Lunie Warren and Delia McCauley Warren. He married Billie Merle Paulk March 20, 1946.

Nelton joined the United States Army at the age of 18 and served during the WWII era. He was in the 11th Airborne Infantry Division, 2nd Battalion/ 511th Regiment and was in New Guinea in the Pacific Theatre.

After completing his service to his country, he went to work for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT/Katy) Railroad. He left De Leon in 1969 to move to Missouri for his railroad career and worked for MKT/Katy until his retirement.

In his spare time, Nelton loved spending time outdoors. He enjoyed gardening, camping and fishing. He also greatly enjoyed spending time with his family.

Nelton was a lifelong Baptist and was a committed warrior for Christ. His faith in the Lord was the center of his life, and he was determined to share the word of God with anyone he could. His relationship with God led him to become a Lay Minister later in his life.

Nelton was a loving husband, devoted father, doting grandfather, loyal friend and faithful servant to God. He lived a full and long life and leaves a loving legacy in his family.

Nelton has been reunited with his loving wife, Billie, his parents, four brothers, and one sister.

He is survived by his daughters, Susan Faucett and Carolyn Ann Edwards and husband Dennis; son John Paul Warren and wife Vicky; grandchildren Jacobe Faucett, Jana Lewellen, Jennifer Jones, Jason Faucett, John Stegner, III, Megan Thieman, Danielle Rapp, McCauley Warren and Taylor Webb; 14 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; other extended family and many friends.
