Warren Wesley Yazzie, age 45, resident of Bixby, Oklahoma, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, January 21, 2021, at his residence. Wes was born on September 24, 1975, in Lawton, Oklahoma, and he was the son of Das and Margie (Coon) Yazzie.
Wes graduated from Putnam City North High School, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and he received his certificate in Small Engine Repair from a career vocational school. Wes’s passion for volleyball was born when he was sixteen-years old playing in the United States Volleyball Association (USVA) with his Dad as his teammate for over twenty years. Wes continued his love for the sport and became an avid player, and he was considered a well-respected and honest referee. Wes relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and he worked with his Dad at Diversa Graphic as a paper-cutter, die-cutter and fork-lift operator for five years before committing to be a full-time dad to his children. At the time of death, he was employed by Paragon Technologies.
Wes’s spiritual life began at five years old when he accepted Jesus as his Savior, and he was baptized by Johnny Buckner at El Reno Indian Baptist Church.
Wes had a magnetic personality as people were drawn to him through his genuine heart and good-natured character. His hobbies included spending time with his children, fishing, volleyball, camping, fixing cars, hunting, boxing, construction, weaponry, spending time with his brother and loved ones, and challenging his parents in Dominoes. Wes would go out of his way to help others and would give anything he had to help them, and he once said to his Mom that he always put other people’s needs before himself. Wes never left without bestowing a kiss on his loved ones.
Wes is survived by his three children, Isaac, Nevada and Lilee Yazzie of Bixby, Oklahoma; his parents, Das and Margie Yazzie of Coweta, Oklahoma; his fiancé, Jessica Armstrong and a baby on the way; his sister, Zena Stafford of Sallisaw, Oklahoma; his brother, Jerome Yazzie of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; six nieces, eight nephews, two great-nieces, seven great-nephews, and numerous other relatives and friends to mourn his passing.
