George John Warren

George “John” was born in Decatur, Illinois on June 7th 1947 to George John Warren II and Margaret Jane Adkesson. He passed on to his eternal life on March 2, 2024 in Bristol, Vermont. He married Sue Kohlbecker in 1965 and they moved to Los Angeles, California that same year. Their daughter Laurie was born in 1966 and Wendy in 1970. In 1978 they moved to Nampa, Idaho for a quieter life and to raise their girls in the country. They were later divorced.  

John absolutely loved Idaho. He enjoyed fishing, hiking and gardening. He grew miniature roses and hosted a community garden for his friends and family at church. He cherished his time mining for gold on his claim and camping in the beautiful Idaho mountains. He was an active member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Nampa while he lived there.  

In 1988 John met Jo Ellen “Jodie” LePard and they moved to Vancouver, Washington. John and Jodie got married in Cannon Beach, Oregon. They enjoyed many years biking and hiking Oregon Coast and enjoying the Portland Jazz scene and theater. John’s favorite spot in Portland was the Grotto Catholic Sanctuary. John and Jodie later retired to Post Falls, Idaho where they purchased a home near the Spokane river. John and Jodie loved walking along the river trail and spending time on Lake Coeur d’Alene. Jodie passed away in 2007.

John met and married Susan Lavoie in 2009. They bought an RV and spent a couple of years traveling around the U.S. visiting family and friends. They eventually settled in Naples, Florida where they enjoyed spending time on the beach.  Later they moved to the Pacific Northwest near the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington and spent John’s final years in Bristol, Vermont.

Survivors include his wife Susan of Bristol, Vermont, his daughter Laurie (Ken) of Eagle, Idaho, his daughter Wendy (Al) of San Antonio, Texas, his granddaughter Simone also of San Antonio, Jodie’s son Doug (Cori) of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and their daughters Delaney and Hailey, brother Joe (Cheryl) of Covina, California and his sister Mary Jane (Nick) of Bakersfield, California.

We would like to thank Brian and Sheila Heady of The Evergreen House for their compassionate loving care.  A private celebration of dad’s life will be held at a later date.
