Obituary for John R. Voreis

John Voreis, 72, of Coralville, Iowa died September 18, 2017.

He grew up in Aurora, Illinois. John was a graduate of Iowa State University. He was proud to have served his country as a Naval Officer 1968-1971. John enjoyed a career as a real estate appraiser until his retirement in 2010. He and his wife, Kris, lived in California, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and for 35 years in Illinois. Iowa became his home six years ago.

John was an avid hunter, loyal Hawkeye fan, golfer, and lover of craft beers and single malt scotches.

Above all else John was happiest spending time with his family. He left wonderful memories with Kris, his wife and best friend of 49 years; his beloved daughter, Sara Scott and her husband Paul; and the three grandchildren who delighted him, Zoe, Ray and Henry.

There will be a private family service.

A time for family and friends to gather in remembrance and celebration of John’s life will be Saturday, October 14, 11:00 am-2:00 pm at the University of Iowa Athletics Hall of Fame.

The family kindly requests no flowers please. Memorials may then be directed to Iowa City Community School District Foundation or the Izaak Walton League of America.
