Joe's Bar Announces Premium Cigar Sales

The Put-in-Bay and Joe’s Bar Community Remember Richard Warren

Richard Warren was a well-known and respected tobacconist in Put-in-Bay, Ohio, who had built a successful business supplying high-quality cigars locally. Known for his discerning palate and dedication to his craft, Richard sourced his cigars from the finest producers in the Dominican Republic, a country renowned for its premium tobacco. His shop in Put-in-Bay became a favorite destination for cigar aficionados and casual smokers alike, drawn by his expert recommendations and the superior quality of his products.


Richard’s journey into the world of cigars began many years ago. After developing a passion for tobacco and its rich history, he made several trips to the Dominican Republic to personally select the best cigars for his clientele. His trips were more than business ventures; they were pilgrimages to the heart of the tobacco industry. In the Dominican Republic, he established close relationships with local growers and manufacturers, ensuring that his cigars were of the highest quality. These connections not only allowed him to offer unique and exclusive products but also fostered a sense of community and mutual respect between him and his suppliers.


Tragically, Richard’s life was cut short when he passed away suddenly in the Dominican Republic last winter. His untimely death sent shockwaves through the community of Put-in-Bay and the cigar industry at large. He was remembered not only for his business acumen and dedication to his craft but also for his warm personality and the genuine relationships he built with both his customers and suppliers. His passing left a significant void in the community, where he was known as much for his friendship and generosity as for his cigars.


In the wake of his death, many in Put-in-Bay have shared fond memories of Richard, reminiscing about the advice he gave and the quality cigars he provided. His legacy lives on in the countless lives he touched through his passion for cigars and his commitment to excellence. As the community mourns his loss, they also celebrate the lasting impact he had on the local cigar culture and the personal connections he forged throughout his life.
