A native of Sedgwick County, Warren Lee, was the son of the late Boon Thanmithak and Bridget Ann Siedler. He was preceded in death by his grandfather's Howard Duane Siedler and Han Peng and uncle Kien Bahn.
Warren Lee Thanmithak was a friend, son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, chef, fisherman, comedian, deep thinker and lover of knowledge, MMA enthusiast, gun aficionado, survivalist at the ready and grill master. He was beloved by all who had the privilege of knowing him. If Warren considered you a friend or family he was fiercely loyal, affectionate and would do anything for you.
