Warren worked hard all his life. He grew up in the Bowser area and eventually moved to Courtenay, BC. Warren was born in Alberta and moved to Qualicum, BC when he was young and attended school there. At the age of 14, he went bridge building with his father Leo. Eventually he met Carol, with whom he has spent the past 38 years. They moved first to Cumberland, BC where he worked in the logging industry and then to Campbell River, BC, where Warren worked for Lemon Point Logging, until his death on July 26, 2007. Although he was a shy, quiet man, he had many friends throughout the Island whose company he enjoyed, sharing many good times and who will all surely miss him.
