WARREN GANDER (published on January 27, 2011)

WARREN GANDER It is with great sadness that the family of Warren Gander announce his sudden passing on January 22, 2011, at Oak Bank, Manitoba, at the age of 65. Left to mourn and cherish forever his wonderful memory is his best friend, soul mate and wife, Linda Taylor Gander; his loving children, Maureen Vohora and Michael Gander; grandchildren, Shalin, Alisha, and Arya Vohora and Athena Giesbrecht; his loving mother, Hilda Gander; brothers, Edward Gander and Raymond Gander; father-in-law Don Taylor; mother-in-law Irene Taylor; brother-in-law Gary Taylor, nephews and numerous special friends and neighbours. Warren was predeceased by his father Jim Gander and his sister-in-law Carol Gander. His career included working as a military police officer for three years, a probation officer and program manager in the provincial government for seven years, and 27 years as the Executive Director of a registered private vocational school - Edutech Training Centres. Edutech was his passion, and his leadership was instrumental in assisting hundreds of adults, both personally and professionally, at improving their lives and developing their careers. In the past 10 years, he had owned and operated a small cottage rental business with Linda, as well as doing a variety of handyman and carpentry jobs. His work ethic and pride in a job well done were always evident. Many happy years were spent at the cottage where he also enjoyed special lake friends. Warren had a joy for life, and he was well known for his quick wit, sense of humour, and kind deeds. His Christian faith became a very significant part of his later life, and he loved and cherished his church family. He has now gone from this world to his heavenly home. His memory will live on in those that were fortunate enough to know and love him. Well done thy good and faithful servant! In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of choice. A celebration of Warren's life will be held at Ness Avenue Baptist Church, 2700 Ness, on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Interment to follow at Chapel Lawn.
