Tonner Gene Warrior, a beloved father, brother, and grandpa to Essiah, passed away on July 31, 2023, in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Born on November 6, 1980, in Pawnee, Oklahoma, to Larry and Lucinda Warrior.
Spending time with his children, friends, and family was Tonner's favorite thing to do. Tonner loved nothing more than being surrounded by the people he held dear. He also loved going to the casino and was a talented tattoo artist. Anywhere he went, he always had to make sure he looked fly.
Tonner will forever be remembered as a loving son and friend. Although he has departed this world too soon, Tonner's memory will live on through his children: Devon Warrior, Tiaira Pappan Warrior, Jaxon Warrior Enloe, Kenleigh Warrior, and WiHe Warrior. His sisters, Dawena Pappan, Kimberly Enloe, and Leah Warrior, will hold his memory close to their hearts. He was preceded in death by his parents.
Tonner also leaves behind numerous family members and friends who loved him dearly. Each one of them has been touched by the love and joy he brought into their lives.
As we bid farewell to Tonner Gene Warrior, let us remember him as a vibrant soul who lived life on his terms. His infectious laughter and stylish presence will be deeply missed by all those whose paths he crossed.
