Ronald (Ronnie) Warren — In Memoriam
On Wednesday, September 23, 2015, the Atlas, Twin Rivers and Plaster Rock families suffered a heart-wrenching loss. Ronald (Ronnie) Warren, a long-time employee of our Plaster Rock sawmill, died as a result of a workplace accident. Ronnie was a devoted son, husband, father and friend. A trusted colleague to all with whom he worked, he brought both skill and dedication to his craft. At Plaster Rock, Ronnie was a member of the joint occupational health and safety committee, and recently served as Vice-President of the local union, Unifor 5080. He cared deeply about Plaster Rock, working each day not only to make the company a successful business but to make it a great place to work. He succeeded on both counts, and that contribution will endure.

Ronnie was a pillar in his community, including serving his neighbors as a volunteer firefighter. His funeral service was attended by over 500 people in a community with a population just over 1,100. Our Plaster Rock mill sat idled in his honor to allow his “second family”, his co-workers, to attend the service. They grieved with his wife of 27 years, Wendy, his sons Brandon and Bradley, and all those whose lives were touched by his.

Ronnie’s family has asked that anyone wishing to make a donation in honor of Ronnie to please direct it to IWK Children’s Hospital.

Please keep Ronnie, his loved ones, and all of our colleagues at Twin Rivers in your hearts and minds during this difficult time.
