Warren leaves behind: his loving wife Gerry of 56 years, son Brent and wife Colleen, daughter Christine and partner John Hamilton, and daughter Deena Dunn and husband Ryan. He is also survived by his four grandchildren: Tierney & Bryce Barker, Griffin & Hudson Dunn, and a great-granddaughter. Warren also leaves behind his older sister, Marian Johnston, of Prince George, as well as nieces and nephews.
