WARNER THOMAS HUGHES FLETT (published on April 08, 2010)

WARNER THOMAS HUGHES FLETT On April 4, 2010 Warner passed away peacefully in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Riverview Health Centre, Respiratory Wing 2 East. Warner was born in Winnipeg on April 25, 1932. He started his career at the Winnipeg Free Press in 1949 and retired in 1995. Warner married his one true love and best friend Dolores Elizabeth Vipond in 1957 and together they raised five children. Warner and Dolores celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with all their children, grandchildren and many relatives together in Canmore, Alberta. This was a time that we know Warner held very dear, because to him, it was truly all about family! Warner had a passion for computers and spent countless hours creating DVD's of the thousands of family pictures he collected and enjoyed sharing these family moments with family and friends. He would stay up to date with new computer hardware that would come onto the market and would say from time to time, I just bought this for my computerbut don't tell your mother . From his days as a typesetter, Warner had a particular interest in fonts. He loved all the fonts that were available and had a collection numbering in the thousands! He loved to travel and experience new things, providing he could share these moments with those he loved. If anyone needed help with a project, they only needed to ask. From flying out to Vancouver to help his son Glen renovate his condo, to lending his expertise and hand to his son Darrell as he built his workshop/meat processing room at the rear of his garage, Warner had an eye for detail and certainly demonstrated it with all he did. If you were going to build it, you had to build it properly, he would say! Warner loved and cherished his wife and family more than anything else in the world. He was a proud man who gave so much of himself to those around him. He always put the well being of his family before himself even when he truly was in need. He demonstrated kindness, honesty, fairness and respect to acquaintances and love, loyalty and honour to those lucky enough to be part of his life. Just saying Warner was a great person doesn't say enough...he was truly remarkable! Warner's stay in hospital did not affect his personality. When any of the staff would enter his room, he made a point of introducing himself and any visitors he had at the time; always followed by a smile and a friendly hello . He knew people by name and very much appreciated the care he received. To many, Warner wasn't just a patient as much as he was a friend. All of his family would like to thank the staff who cared for him at both the St. Boniface Hospital and Riverview Health Centre. You made him as comfortable as possible in his last weeks. He often spoke of how wonderful the care was that you provided. Warner leaves behind his wonderful wife of 52 years Dolores and his children, Robert (Mary Ann), Darrell (Darlene), Glen (Juergen), Kerri (Mike), Christie (Robbie) and grandchildren, Jaron (Robyn), Gavin, Rowen, Kira, Jaydon, Jordyn and Warner's sister, Ann Cowan. As a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, cousin and friend, Warner will sincerely be missed, but the memories we all shared will live on in our hearts forever. Funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 10 at Korban Funeral Chapel, 907 Main Street, Winnipeg Manitoba. Interment will follow at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens, 4000 Portage Avenue. KORBAN FUNERAL CHAPEL 956-2193
