Obituary For Brian Andrew Warder

June 9, 1978 - February 28, 2024

The family of Brian Andrew Warder are shocked and saddened to announce his unexpected passing. Brian was born June 9, 1978 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and passed away at home in Grande Prairie, Alberta on February 28, 2024. Brian lived most of his life in Swift Current, Saskatchewan with his parents, sister and his children. Brian was involved with Navy League Cadets and Sea Cadets throughout his youth. He enjoyed reading, camping, spending time with family and friends. He also had a knack for cooking his famous Tater Tot Casserole which everyone loved.

Brian loved cats and he often found the neighbourhood cats hanging around his yard....and even some inside the house....Brian also enjoyed working on cars with his boys.

Brian and his wife and oldest son and grandson recently moved to Grande Prairie, Alberta for work, he really did enjoy his job and everyone at Magnum Cementing Services liked Brian. They always said he had a smile on his face when he came into work.

Brian is predeceased by his grandparents, and by his father Allan in 2022. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Leslie (nee Stauffer), sons Shaun and Jordan, stepson Josh Stauffer and grandson Jaxson, his mother Brenda and sister Heather along with his in-law family and Aunts, Uncle's and Cousins.

Instead of flowers, we would like you to donate to a local animal shelter in Brian's honour. A link to the local animal shelter in Grande Prairie (Bandaged Paws) is located to the left under Brian’s photo.

"Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be."

A celebration of Brian's life will be held on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024 at 11am at Bear Creek Funeral Home (11802 99 Avenue in Grande Prairie). For those wishing to join virtually, a livestream link will be provided below.
