Warren left home to join the military in 1942 where he was a flight engineer during WWII as a spotter on the Catalinas. He then continued his time in the military for another 20 years where he worked in military transport and during this time had postings to Hamilton, North Bay, White Horse and Comox.
Warrens post military career was the School District 71 and was with them for 20 years. He was in charge of painting.
Warren came to the Comox Valley in 1958. He lived for a short while in Union Bay and in 1960 built a house on Cooke Avenue in Comox where he stayed till 2013 when he relocated to Casa Loma retirement home. Due to declining health, Warren entered Glacier View Lodge on February 12, 2015.
We would like to thank all the staff at Glacier View for the wonderful care he received, the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Casa Loma and especially Dr. Desmond Konway.
We would also like to send a special thank you to Jim Hume for his faithful visits.
