Warren was born New Year’s Eve in Winnipeg, Man.; but he admitted to us that he was “beat by a girl” to be the New Year’s baby that year. He lived a very full life in Fort Frances despite being diagnosed with MS in his graduating high school year. Warren was being pursued by the Manitoba Bison’s Football team to be their kicker – sadly, because of his diagnosis he was not able to fulfill that commitment, but he never let MS stop him there. He went on to graduate high school and then university.
He found great passion in investing, researching the latest market trends and best investments. He loved talking with friends and family about finance and smart investments even if we didn’t; Warren wanted to ensure that he passed along how important it is to invest in our future and have gainful employment. Working for Canada Employment Centre for 25 years brought him much fulfillment and suited his natural helpful personality. He was an active community member serving on the Rainy River District School Board, Toastmasters, Kinsmen club, Lion’s Club as well as participated in bowling, curling, slowpitch and volleyball to name a few.
Warren had an endless amount of empathy and kindness to everyone he knew. He was known to be quite funny with his “dry sense of humour.” Our family had many great years travelling, at the cabin, attending Blue Jay’s games and he always made sure to point out historical events and sights to remember.
Our fond memories of Dad, Papa, and Warren live on in us forever and his kindness and care for all will never be forgotten.
He is survived by his daughter Kerry; son Ryan Zub and Teri; and mother of his children, Heather; grandchildren Brighton Pollard, Landon and Adalyn Zub; sister Carol Ewacha; and our adopted family of home support workers and service providers “the girls.”
Warren was predeceased by his parents Mike and Elly Zub; grandparents Frans and Britta Engstrom and John and Katherine Zub; aunt and uncles Margaret and Glenn Canfield and Doris and Lawrence Calder and brother Enar Engstrom, El and Mabel Plymate, Alec and Katherine Zub, Eddy and Jean Zub, Harry and Sally Zub, Roy Zub, Nettie and Bill Galandly; Bradley Plymate.
The honourary pallbearers will be his good friends: Lee Stinson, Ted Swift “Swifty,” Don Barns, Cheech Morelli, John Taylor, and Al Parker.
Cremation has taken place and a funeral service will be planned for the spring.
