Wahamaa, Warren

Warren Wahamaa passed away suddenly on Friday, April 5, 2019 in Lively, ON. Born in Sudbury, ON he grew up in Azilda, ON. He was the beloved son of the late Leo and Margaret Wahamaa (née Kahma).

He will be sadly missed by his many cousins, nieces and nephews. An outdoorsman, music lover and traveller with his dog Hunter by his side, Warren worked in mechanical maintenance for Hydro One for 25 years before retiring. A gregarious man with a big heart, he travelled throughout Ontario for his work, connecting with many folks along the way. He always had a smile and a story to tell.

5 Condolences

  1. To the entire Wahamaa family, my sincere condolences. I remember Warren William Walter Wahamaa growing up on Penage and later as he drove by and sometimes visited in that big tugboat he inherited from his father. It’s so sad that he passed away so young.

  4. My memory of Warren will always be at his camp many years ago – having sauna, dinner and then singing along with the Eagles for about 3 hours – Warren knew every word of every song. We went to bed and he kept singing. I know the Eagles music is in heaven with you Warren.
