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.

A private service took place on Saturday, July 11, 2020. Donations to the Sarnia Humane Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation are appreciated. Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at

Nancy, Mike, Heather and family,
I was so saddened to read of Dave’s passing. My heartfelt condolences go out to you. I was a young teacher when I began working at North Lambton SS in 1991, and so many of my older colleagues were true professionals. Dave embodied this: class, level-headed, caring, possessing such strong principles, and truly passionate about teaching English. He will be sadly missed.

We are deeply saddened to hear of Mr.Warrens passing. Mr.Warren was Andy and my favourite high school Teacher(English). He was a wonderful Teacher who was tough and always wanted the best from his students. Mr.Warren was always there to give advice and lend an ear when needed. Andy and I talk to our children about Teachers they will come upon that will make a difference in their lives. Mr. Warren was that Teacher for us. Thinking about your entire family during this difficult time.
Love Abby and Andy Henry

Dear Nancy and Family: I'm so saddened to hear of Dave's passing. He and I and Brian started in the English Dept. at NLSS in September, 1989. The three of us were new Secondary English teachers, so we learned a lot together. I was privileged to work with David as an English teacher. I was also the Librarian, and Dave and his classes frequented the library, making good educational use of it. Dave was no slacker. He loved his job. It was so obvious; and the students knew it. They couldn't be fooled.
I regret not dropping by to see him more often after we parted ways (well, I left for a different position). I will never forget what a fine man Dave was, and a wonderful colleague.

Thanks so much Fran your words mean a lot and very much appreciated
