Our sincere thoughts and prayers to all of the family in this time of sadness. Warren was truly a “gentle giant” of a man. He was a friend. He had a tremendous ability to make you laugh till it hurt. He could sauna till it hurt too. A true Suomalainen poika he enjoyed being Warren. Rest In Peace our friend — from Monica and Jim

Dearest Wahamaa family: My sincerest condolences! I first met Warren when I dated Terry Makela. Warren and the high school boys Doug, Robert,Ben,Terry were frequently guests at my home. We always hosted tv nights watching NFL games or Hockey games! Warren was a Big lad, but a very gentle giant . He made me laugh, was super generous sharing all he had with those who had less. He loved Chinese food. 🙂 I have fond memories of days on whitewater lake, and camp at Penache . Warren even welcomed my current life long partner, Rick to his camp and treated us both like royalty !! Warren, you Kind soul... may you rest in eternal peace ! Diane.

I am so said to hear that Warren has past away. I worked several years with Warren at Ontario Hydro and always enjoyed working with Warren. He was a dog person just like me. Rest in peace my friend.

Warren, you were always like a 3rd big brother to me, hell I knew you all my life! A huge wealth of knowledge, on just about everything. I really valued your opinion, thank you for all of your assistance. I'm going to miss our weekly telephone chats, where lots of great ideas, and foolish talk, got thrown around. Whether these ideas come to fruition, remains to be seen, some probably shouldn't! Karyn is going to miss your annual Mother's Day, and birthday calls too, not that you guys didn't talk between those events. I'm profoundly saddened by your departure, but at the same time thankful for having had you in my life for so long. I wish it wasn't cut short so early though..... Love, Ken

I was very sorry to hear of Warren's passing. All my deepest condolences to Warren's family. I have not seen Warren for a long time but we had a blast in high school, especially on the track and field team. A few saunas in the summer are also a fond memory. Rest in Peace.
