Obituary

In loving memory of

Robert John Warren

February 6, 1952 – August 15, 2023

Robert (Robin) John Warren, beloved son of Joyce and Bob Warren, passed peacefully, surrounded by family, on August 14, 2023. Robert is survived by siblings Kathryn, Jonathan (and Eleonor, son Primo), Peter (and Lucille), Christopher, Geoffrey (and Glenna), Andrew (and Tracey Rintamaki), Carl, and Jennifer Warren (son Bobby), and by nephew David (and Jes, daughter Macie) Warren. He will be sadly missed by the community of Iroquois Falls, in which he lived and worked for thirty years. Born in 1952 and raised in Toronto, England and Ottawa, Robert had constant positivity, humour, and dignity in the face of medical challenges from childhood on. He had a lifelong love of animals, particularly cats, and was a voracious reader of the National Geographic. He loved people and always remembered them; he enjoyed joking and teasing. He had a great fondness for Christmas, swimming, music, food and cookbooks (not necessarily cooking); for Star Trek, Dr. Who, Crazy 8’s, Archie comics, and lottery tickets. Born with an intellectual disability, Robert faced all challenges in his life with courage, his own wisdom, and no complaints. His mother Joyce advocated fiercely for his rights to literacy and independent living throughout his life, and she was helped immensely to this end by Community Living. Of all his jobs, Robert particularly loved his time working at Anson General Hospital. In recent years, Robert maintained his humour and zest for life while in long-term care, supported by the staff at South Centennial Manor. His loud laugh, playful jokes, and kindness will be remembered fondly by the care team who saw him through many medical difficulties in the last two years. The eldest of a large family, Robert’s gentle nature and strength of character will be greatly missed, but the memory of his toughness under medical stress, his independence in spite of disabilities, and his love for life will serve as a significant inspiration for all who knew him. Robert will be interred privately. Donations in Robert’s memory may be made to MICS Group, Anson General Hospital, or a charity of your choice.
