Obituary

Warren Ralph Johnson

1916 - 2005

 

Passed away suddenly at Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton on March 25, 2005.

 

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Margaret; four sons, Ernest (Carole) of Olds, Alberta, Edward of Edmonton, Frederick (Jane) of Edmonton, Howard (Linda) of Nelson, BC; and six grandchildren, Carl, Sharon (Kevin), Eric (Adria), David, Warren and Karyn. He is also survived by his sister, Harriet Watson of Edmonton and numerous nieces and nephews. His parents, brothers Carl and Hugo, and sisters Lilian and Clara, predeceased him.

 

Warren was born in Ottawa, Ontario February 6, 1916 and grew up in Archerwill, Saskatchewan and Vancouver (Lynn Valley), British Columbia.

 

He became a radio telegrapher and worked as Radio Officer aboard the West Coast tug, ST Faith. In 1940, he joined the federal Department of Transport. He worked as a radio operator at Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, as part of the Northwest Staging Route initiative for the duration of World War II. He moved to Edmonton with his family in 1949, again to work as a radio operator, eventually becoming the Operations Supervisor for telecommunications for western Canada. He retired in 1972.

 

In 1980, he and Margaret moved to Summerland, BC where he actively enjoyed pursuing his hobbies of Ham Radio Painting and golf. In 1997, Warren and Margaret moved back to Edmonton to be close to his family. A private family service is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation or the charity of your choice. 73.
