Nominator Summary: Warren has been role model for the next generation in his humble, giving spirit. Warren has participated in fundraising events for the last 50 years, helping non profit organizations get their funding when government support isn't available. From fundraising for the hospital, golf tournaments, service clubs, church groups, fire department and the mayors gala, Warren has truly shown through his actions how to put your neighbour first. Community Living Haldimand was in need of an individual to step up and fundraise to create the 10,000 sq foot facility that have to this day so that the developmentally challenge could have a place of their own. Warren says it so beautifully in the video. "I always believe and still believe that if a community builds something together and it is worthwhile, medical centers, sports complexes, a complex like this name after Mrs. Deagle the Jenny Deagle Complex, they will never let it fail and that still holds true to this day." Our community is simply better together because of the work individuals like Warren.
