A bright star has left our earthly days, Jonathan Mark Woffenden succumbed to a long painful struggle with alcoholism on Aug. 12, 2021. Jon grew up in North Idaho surrounded by loving family and friends. He had wonderful years at Post Falls High School developing lifelong friendships. He completed a BS in software engineering at UI and was enjoyed by many at our own White House Grill before embarking on his software engineering career. Jon was valued by everyone who got to know him for his brilliance and his amazing sense of humor. Jon’s strongest inner drive was ever always eager to help other people; from phone solicitors to IT personnel, to fast food drive-through workers. His favorite thing was to make someone laugh or get through a tough day.
He is survived by his father: David S. Woffenden, his mother Julie Koep, and his brother Andrew Woffenden.
We will plan a memorial service for Jon in a few months. Please write down your favorite Jon moment and send it to his family for their comfort on that day. Mail with your return address if you want to be notified of that memorial service. Letters can be sent to the English funeral chapel 1700 N Spokane St. Post Falls, Idaho 83854 Attn: Jon Woffenden Family.
