Mr. John Warren, age 75, of Calhoun, passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2018, at his residence.
Mr. Warren was born in Floyd County, GA, on March 5, 1943, son of the late George T. Warren and Martha G. Johnson Warren. He worked in textiles for over 40 years, with Pharr Yarns and Mohawk Industries. Mr. Warren enjoyed tinkering with motors and as a result of this passion he was well known as an auto and lawnmower mechanic. He loved music and could just about play any instrument he picked up, including the guitar, banjo and mandolin. He and his wife, Lavonda, loved and attended Miracle Temple for several years. John was an avid reader of the Bible, he was always studying and shared his findings with others as a minister at Miracle Temple and other churches. John is lovingly remembered as the man “who is always right” (whether he was or not) and the one who had to think on things for a couple of days. He was preceded in death by his wife, Lavonda Warren; three sisters and four brothers.
