Edward Raymond Warren

69 

November 23

Boise

Ed was born to Clarence and Elizabeth in Sioux Falls where he grew up with his three sisters. Ed graduated from Lincoln High School, went on to college in Colorado and graduated with a mechanics degree. He was drafted into the Army where he was stationed in Germany during the Vietnam war and then went on to work for the government for most of his career. 

Ed made many life-long friends at the VA in South Dakota and National Interagency Fire Center in Idaho. He met his wife Candi in the fall of 1976, had two children and then moved to Idaho in 1995. He was a tough nut to crack but had the biggest heart underneath that rough exterior. Ed was the first one to let you know that you messed up and the first one to be there to help pick up the pieces. He had a love of music and guitars that no one could rival. He named his favorite guitar “the old lady”. From his dogs, to horses, to rabbits, to ferrets, to turtles, to birds, there was no end to Ed’s love for animals. He also had a love for cars and was a regular member in a British Car club in Boise where he made many friends and was able to find people who understood his technical talk about all things mechanical and shared his love of driving. His passion was infectious. He was a jack-of-all-trades and a MASTER of all. His take on this obituary would probably be “This is bull shit”.

He is survived by his wife Candi (Wrage); daughter, Alicia (Dave Jenkins) and grandson, Carter; son, Sam; sisters Claire (Paul) Dalrymble, Barb Peterson and Colleen (Pat) Thompson; sisters-in-law Cindy (Kent) Johnson, Connie Jones, Gaye Haugen; brothers-in-law John (Nikki) Wrage and Adam (Nancy) Wrage, as well as many nieces and nephews.

A public memorial gathering will be held from 5-7 p.m., Monday, August 3, 2020, at the Minnehaha Funeral Chapel in Colton. Private interment will be held earlier that day.

Arrangements provided by Minnehaha Funeral Home.
