Louisiana Statewide Death Indeces, 1925, Winn Parish, LA. Name: James Warren Sikes
Death Date: 19 Apr 1925
Estimated Birth Year: 1857
Age: 68 years
PARISH: Winn

Obituary, 1925. The Death Angel paid its silent call to Sikes, La., Sunday night at midnight and deprived the town of its father, and leader, James Warren Sikes.

Uncle Warren as he was known by every one in this section of the country was born near Sikes, La., on November 2, 1956. He was a Christian from his early boyhood and a leader in the Baptist Church. He served as a deacon for over thirty years and was the leader in Masonic (illegible). In his early days he was a farmer and when the first post office was installed in this part of the parish he served as postmaster and held this position until a short time ago. The town of Sikes was named in his honor.

Uncle Warren was the father of eleven children and his widow, Mrs. Ellen Crain Sikes, and nine living children survive him, viz., Jim, Bob, Rube, Alf, Winnifred, Jerome, and Mrs. W. E. Thornton, Mrs. R. Underwood, and [Mrs.] Arley Thompson.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Mark Price and the remains were lead to the rest in the Sikes Cemetery by the local Masonic Lodge. The entire community paid their respects to the fallen leader and their sympathy and love are extended to the bereaved family.

Let us endeavor to live the life of the righteous so our end may be like his.
