John Tiffany Obituary

John William Tiffany passed away at his home in Rathdrum, Idaho, on June 6, 2018.

He was born Sept. 27, 1964, in Minneapolis to Lewis and Ruth Tiffany. He was the youngest of five children.

The family moved to Idaho Falls in July 1972, where he attended schools and graduated from Skyline High School. He was a scrappy football player and played Grid Kid football and also for the Skyline football team. After school, he worked with his brother Fred in his recycle yard and as a result traveled to numerous Western states.

He signed up with Missouri Valley joint apprentice training program for four years before becoming a journey lineman, which took him to several states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Washington state and Utah.

He was an avid outdoorsman and had six trips to Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota with his brothers, Fred and Greg, and a nephew Allen. He also went on an Alaskan fishing trip with two nephews Allen and Joshua.

He married Nina Metz in 2004, and in that union, he was blessed with one son, William, and four stepchildren: Johnny, Katie, Chris and Kelsey. He was a devoted father to his son, Will, and also to his four stepchildren.

Being the outdoorsman he was, he decided to move to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where they lived until his passing.

He is preceded in death by his father, Lewis Tiffany.

John is survived by his son, Will; mother, Ruth Tiffany; his brothers, Fred and Greg Tiffany; two sisters, Susan (Tiffany) and Tom Ryan and Jean (Tiffany) Swearingen; his former wife, Nina Tiffany, and her children; and numerous nieces and nephews.
