With broken hearts we announce the passing of Cyril Barry Warren, 73 years old, of Welland on May 5, 2024, at the St. Catharines Hospital, after a brief, but hard fought battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family. He remained kind hearted and kept his sense of humour until the very end.

Cyril was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Cyril and Ida Warren. He grew up with 3 brothers and 1 sister. He leaves behind his loving wife Marjorie of 53 years, his sons Roger and his wife Colleen and Dwayne and his partner Kate. He will never be forgotten by his grandchildren Kaden, Ryland, Lainie as well as several nieces and nephews. He will be missed by his loving friends Alex, Kyle, Jennifer, Rebecca, Sebastien and Alex V.

Cyril was employed by McDonald’s Restaurants for a total of 30 years before retiring due to his illness. Cyril loved serving his community for his entire life. Most recently he has been making a difference in supporting his gang throughout the community.

Special thanks to Jennifer Elliot for continuing his legacy and thanks to Fabio for his thoughtfulness. Also, thanks to Dr. Clayden and Anna from the Walker Family Cancer Clinic and the nurses and PSWs of 3B at the St. Catharines Hospital. A heartfelt thank you to Prisca, Cherise, Amy, Trista, Wilson and Jeremy for your outstanding care and compassion for Cyril throughout his illness.

  • I saw Cyril at the St. Kitts hospital 3 weeks ago, and as he lived his life, he was still full of optimism.
    We were days apart in age and always wished each other a Happy Birthday over the years.

    Cyril introduced me to the wonderful sport of Pickleball in 2015. He approached me as I was walking the track at the Welland Y. His enthusiasm and magnetic personality had me hooked on pickleball and him instantly. He organized huge tournaments, complete with Strong Kids t-shirts like no one else could. I am going to miss Cyril, as will so many others, especially the kids at the Y.

    Marjie, Roger, Dwayne and Family, we are so sorry for your loss. He may be gone but will never be forgotten.

    Hugs and best wishes,
