Born: 22 Apr 1945, Saint John, New Brunswick


Died: 16 Mar 2022, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia


QUINN, Warren John - Age 76, died after a long illness surrounded by family on Wednesday, March 16, 2022. Born in Saint John, N.B. Warren was preceded by parents, John and Ethel; and is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Dorothy; children, Julie (Carolyn) and Steven (Cathy); and siblings, Joanne, Dawn, Terry, Larry and Pam. Warren was a devoted husband, loving father and brother, and someone who would give tirelessly of his time, efforts and talents to his family and friends.


Warren loved bargain hunting, fishing and hockey (Montreal Canadiens, of course!). Warren served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 33 years. When he retired he was a Chief Petty Officer, first class (CPO1), the most senior non-commissioned member rank of the Royal Canadian Navy.


In his retirement years you would most often find him outside at his work bench in the carport, listening to 8-track tapes and rebuilding someone's washing machine or (his favorite) restoring and repairing lawn mowers. He was always receiving baked goods as thank you gifts for all the household repairs he did for the many people he cared for.


A special thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at Dartmouth General Hospital for their loving care and support over these last two years.


A Celebration of Life service will be held at 12 noon on Thursday, March 24th in A. L. Mattatall Funeral Home at 217 Portland St., Dartmouth. This service will be livestreamed online for those who cannot attend in person, by going to Warren's site through the funeral home website. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald 21 Mar 2022)
