David Warren passed away peacefully at home on July 4, 2020. David and Nancy were married for 50 years. Together they raised two children, Heather (Matt) Strano and Mike (Anne) Warren and 7 granddaughters Abby, Kaitlyn, Emma, Ava, Kylee, Alexa, and Lylah, and his fave furry friend Lexi. Son of the late Arthur (1988) and Eileen Warren (2008), brother to Donna (Bob) McEwen and brother in law to Peter (Nina) Price. Uncle to Scott, Jason, and Melanie.
After various positions with the City of St Thomas and Imperial Oil, he moved home to the lake where he and Nancy became the owners of Pro Hardware in Forest for 3-4 years. David found his passion for teaching English at North Lambton Secondary School where he educated students for 18 years. Known for his love of Shakespeare, Lord of the Flies, proper grammar, no hats in the classroom, and his green pen for marking many essays, he helped many students develop a love of learning. He finished his teaching career in the Co-op Department where he shared his knowledge of the business world working with students and community employers. His love for learning and educating others left an impact on many.
Upon retirement, David enjoyed his time at the lake with his pal Lexi walking the beach and enjoying nature. He appreciated many days sitting on the porch with coffee and a good book watching his granddaughters enjoy the property he so took pride in. David and Nancy soon took to the highways of North America traveling in their RV - their home away from home - seeing new sights and meeting new friends along the way.
The family would like to especially thank Dr. Walker and his staff for being an amazing support to David throughout the years. Thank you to the team at Bayshore Healthcare for allowing David to rest at home with family for his final days.
