WARNICK: Mike (Mickey) Warnick June 19, 1929 October 9, 2013. It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Mike (Mickey) Warnick age 84, at Lake of the Woods District Hospital on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 following a brief illness. Mickey was born in Brandon, Manitoba on June 19, 1929 to Theodore and Katherine Warnick into a family of 10 children. He is predeceased by his father and mother, brothers William and Johnny, sisters Anne, Marjorie, Rose, Mary, Nellie, and Katie. Mickey married Helen Lushaw in Brandon on May 27, 1950. He was employed with the CPR as a wiper and could tell stories of shovelling the coal into the massive boilers of the steam engines. In 1960 the family relocated to Kenora where he continued to work for the CPR retiring in 1987 as a Locomotive Engineer.Mickey is survived by his loving wife Helen of 63 years, son Gord and his wife Pat, grandson Jeff and wife Brianne of Kenora; granddaughter Lyndi (Tony) of Grimbsy, Ontario; son Mike and his wife Judy, grandson Keith and his wife Angela and great granddaughter Sophia of Ottawa; grandson Jason and his wife Tina of Kelowna, B.C. It was special that he got to meet his first great grandchild Sophia and spend time with her feeding the ducks and watching the deer in the yard. One sister, Helen of Winnipeg and many nieces and nephews will remember him. Mickey was a jack of all trades! He could fix anything - he was an avid gardener, fisherman, and an expert golfer and could throw a darn good curling rock. He was a man who never hesitated to try something new; in his younger years he achieved his dream of getting his pilots licence. He was a past member of the Beauty Bay Seniors Golf, the Keewatin Mens Senior Curling Club and was a member and enjoyed the camaraderie of the Kenora Railroaders Club. He was always there to give a helping hand to anyone and was a generous person. The family would like to thank Mickeys family doctor, Jim Beveridge for his excellent care and concern, Dr. Brad Kyle and the 3rd floor nurses. While we will miss him, we are grateful he is no longer suffering and we know he is soaring in the sky with the angels, still enjoying his dream of flying. Rest in peace our loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.
