On Wednesday March 11, 2020 Paul Warun, loving husband and father to two children passed
away at the age of 84. Paul was born on August 15, 1935 in Sundown, Manitoba Canada to
Izydor and Nettie (nee Kulyk) Warun. After attending Gordon Bell High School in Winnipeg,
Paul put himself through the University of Manitoba on a Royal Canadian Air Force Scholarship.
He graduated in May of 1958 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. After

the two were married on May 26, 1962. Paul and Sandra moved to Montreal, Canada where
they had two children Ken and Jennifer. Paul was active in coaching them in various sports and
was always proud of their accomplishments. He joined Northern Electric/Northern
Telecom/Nortel where he worked for 36 years before retiring in 1998. Paul’s two great passions
were travel and theater. In retirement he and Sandra circumnavigated the globe twice, and
spent months living as locals in far off countries and destinations. Paul had an incredible
number of harrowing and humorous travel stories that he loved to tell with a wink and
mischievous grin. His love of the theater began in 1955 while he was stationed in Clinton,
Ontario and went to the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. He continued to attend and support the
festival through 2019. Paul would also make a point to see live theater wherever he was living
and traveled often to London and New York to see plays. Paul is proceeded in death by his
beloved wife Sandra (2009), his brother Matt, and his sister Iris. He is survived by his daughter
Jennifer Warun, and his son and daughter in-law Ken and Alicia Warun, his sister Olga Wagner,
his brother Ronnie Warun, a niece and five nephews. Should friends desire, contributions may
be made to the American Cancer Society or the Public Broadcasting Service in Paul’s memory.
