Warren G. Bisdorf III

January 30, 1955 ~ March 8, 2019 (age 64)


Warren G. III, 64, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019. He was born January 30, 1955 to Warren Jr. and Mary Lee (Winnefeld) Bisdorf. Both parents preceded him in death.

Warren graduated from St. Ann Grade School, Badin High School and cum laude from American University in Washington, D.C. Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps Warren worked his way through school as a movie projectionist.

Warren began his career in law enforcement serving on the D.C. Metropolitan Police Dept. and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. During his time as an officer he met his future wife Shirleen Faye (Martin); they were married on May 19, 1979. His life revolved around their family which included their daughter, Pamela and husband, Richard Darone, of Oxford and grandchildren Savannah, Evan and Austin. After retiring he continued assisting people as a dispatcher for Miami University Police and Oxford P.D.

Warren lived the motto, “To protect and serve.” He was his happiest helping others. He patrolled with his local neighborhood watch, was a mentor for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and worked the polls for many elections. He passed along the gift of sight as an organ donor.

Warren enjoyed following many sports especially the Cincinnati Reds. His love for airplanes began at a young age and he attended many airshows. He also was an avid reader of historical accounts of war and politics, and daily newspapers which he delivered in his youth.

Warren is survived by his brother, Mark and wife Kathy (Lykins), Marion, IN; and sisters Helen and husband Mike Pope, Cincinnati; Diane and husband Carlos Valero, Roseville, MN; Carmelle and husband Mike Cieslak, Liberty Twp; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
