03/10/12 - NNHS Newsletter - John Warren
John Henry Warren
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter today. John Warren, father-in-law of the son of Coach Charlie Nuttycombe of VA, passed away in Newport News on Tuesday, March 06, 2012 at the age of 82.
From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 03/28/12, 9:59 PM - "RE: " John Warren":
Hey, my friend.....I just opened your newsletter and saw something that I felt I must let you know about asap. Mr. John Warren is not the father-in-law of Coach Nuttycombe. He is the father-in-law of Coach Nuttycombe's son, who is married to Johnise Warren. Hey, I don't see how you do all you do and this is just something you would want to know.....I know all of this as I work part-time at Peninsula Funeral Home and I was there for the visitation.....
Mr. Warren's daughter,
Johnise is most attractive and has done modeling and does TV
commercials, even currently. I see her and her husband, son of Coach
Charlie, out at restaurants fairly often. Their son is 15 or 16 years
old and works at Chic-fil-A......he is over the top in maturity and is
most kind, as well.........I think Coach Nuttycombe is probably as old
as Mr. Warren.
YIKES! Thank you so much for this correction, Fred! I could see that the math was very wrong, but I just couldn't seem to make the pieces fit together any other way.

To Mrs. Carolyn, My name is Joan (Woolard) Jones and I'm the daughter of Herbert and Lou Woolard. I remember your husband when I was just a child and he always impressed me as being a kind-hearted person who loved his garden. When you all lived near Orcutt Ave in NN, we used to visit you all and he always offered to give my parents something good to eat out of the garden. His collards were great! I'm sorry for your loss and I will keep him in my prayers. I will also be thinking about you, too, Mrs. Carolyn. Please extend my sympathies to Inez. She has also been a good friend to my parents. My siblings and I offer our prayers to your family.
Johnise and family,
My condolences to you as you go through this difficult time. May you find love and comfort with each other, and in knowing that Mr. Warren is in a far better place than those he left behind. Warmly,
~ Mandi Killmon,
