Mike loved listening to music and sports, baseball being his favorite. Although he loved the Pirates, Ryan, Mike, and the boys would take in a little league game any day. He was so supportive of Anita, Ryan, and Cory in all their activities. He never wanted to be in the spotlight but none of us would have shined without him. Mike loved to trash talk, be it Spades, Cornhole, Monopoly, playing or not, he always had a sarcastic comment for those playing. Friday night dinner and game nights were his favorite.

Jesse Lee Warren, 34, of Ligonier died Wednesday June 30, 2021. Grandson of Mary Rose Warren, the late Ernest Warren, the late Nick J. Serrapere and the late Rose Serrapere.

For many years Jesse fought a long battle with addiction. A battle in which the enemy is merciless and unrelenting. Jesse’s addiction ultimately claimed his young life. A kind-hearted spirit with all the potential in the world overshadowed by the grasp heroin held over his life. Our family brings this to light out of choice and for all to realize no one is immune to the opioid and heroin epidemic. Jesse did not want to leave this world behind. We all wished he had recognized his many talents and saw himself in the way that his friends and family always did. Our family fought the only ways we knew how and as hard as we could. We rest easy knowing his struggle is now over and true peace may begin.
