George was a member of Niagara-on-the-Lake Anglican Church for 65 years. For those whom George touched, the boss was a man full of love for his community, family and people. George's character will live on in the lessons he left his family and friends. For over 50 years he was owner of Warren Heating and Plumbing. The late night service calls to help the people of Niagara-on-the-Lake are retold today. George was a member of the Masonic order (1954), the Shriners (1981), the Royal Canadian Legion (75 years), and a part of the Golden Age club (10 years) where he played cards and socialized with many friends.
As we grieve the loss of George Warren we are mindful that we must also celebrate the life of a good man, a life well lived, a role model for family, and a loving father. He was a hero to his daughters and a best friend to his sons. He will be forever missed.
