Dear Father of Diane (Ron) Ferguson of Blyth, Terry (Colleen) of Ashfield Township and Paul (Lynn Johnston) of Lucknow.

Predeceased by his brother Clarke and sister-in-law Donna Zinn, brothers-in-law Chester Hackett and Even Keith, sister-in-law Gladys Tuck, nephew Blair Zinn and niece Janice Hoffman. Warren was born in Lanesville, Ont on August 31, 1925 to the late Emmeline and Ervin Zinn. He was a long time resident of Ashfield and West Wawanosh Townships, and Lucknow for the past 6 years. In 1951, following his marriage to Marion Graham on June 16, they purchased land in Ashfield where they raised beef cattle and cash cropped. In 1969 they sold their 400 acres and moved to a home south of Belfast. At this time Warren obtained his Real Estate license and carried on to sell many properties in the area. In 1984 they built a home south of Lucknow where they lived until moving to Sepoy Manner in Lucknow in 2013. After Marion’s passing, he resided at Pinecrest. Warren was active in church and community affairs. He attended Crewe, Blake and Trinity United Churches, where he was a member of Session. Warren was on the Board of Directors of the Lucknow District Co-operative for 12 years. In 1968 he became a member of the Ashfield council and served as Reeve from 1974 to 1982. He was a member of Huron County Council from 1973 to 1982. His interest in local agriculture lead him to volunteer with the Lucknow Agricultural Society. Warren's passion for farming never ended as he assisted his son Terry on the farm well into his 80's. Warren not only treasured his family, but the many lasting friendships he made through his community involvement and business activities. Visitation will be held on Wednesday May 15, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM from the Lucknow Community Centre, where the funeral service will be conducted on Thursday May 16, 2019 at 11 AM.

Our sincere sympathy to Warren (and Marion's ) family- It's the passing of an era, and the loss of a kind and mannerly gentleman, who was always happy to stop for a chat, and who was interested in everything, Warren was a member of the Lucknow community in every way. Special thoughts to Terry, Colleen, Eric and Jenna, and to Paul and Lynn, the "young ones" whom we knew. Sheila Clarke and family
