Warren Bickford

July 31, 1954 — January 10, 2022

Warren N. Bickford, age 67, died Monday, January 10, 2022 at his home in Vermontville after a 2 year battle with cancer.

Warren settled in the area after doing two years in the Army and some traveling.. A talented carpenter, he worked for various contractors for over 30 years.

He was an avid fisherman and ice fisherman, winning many fishing derbies including the Lake Colby Classic. He also enjoyed Nascar, hunting and putting his carpentry skills to use by designing and making his own birch bark Adirondack kitchen cabinets and various other pieces.
