Beloved husband of Susan, loving father to Andrea and Laura (predeceased), doting grandfather of Jacob, Jessica and Charlotte, special big brother to Victoria and George (Hazel), caring uncle to Michael Warren, Louisa, and Noah.

Warren’s corporate career roots are in sales and marketing management. From the late ‘70’s into the early 90’s he built a boutique consulting firm, The Service Excellence® Group Inc., that made its name doing strategy work and change-implementation projects based on their highly respected Service Management models.

Since then he worked as an independent, focusing on the trends analysis and strategic planning components that were always part of these initiatives.

His trends work revolved around looking at how the major trends are interacting with each other, in an effort to determine how they are most likely to actually play out. Often running against conventional wisdom, this ‘trends blending’ approach allowed him to correctly call everything from corporate priorities and stock market swings, to real estate values and election results. His client list included every size and sector (including national economic development entities), and covered 30+ countries on 6 continents.

He brought synthesis, pragmatism, and business experience to any discussion.

Warren was also a popular speaker at conferences and corporate meetings. (He was the third person inducted into the Canadian Speaking Hall of Fame)

He held Executive leadership positions in a variety of professional associations, both nationally and internationally, and was the recipient of numerous awards and designations within his industry. Additionally, He held memberships in Rotary and Mensa.

He served as Chair of the Board of Governors of Laura’s Hope, a global research fund accelerating clinical trials for treatments for Huntington’s disease.

BROWN, Robert William -

Brown_Robert(March 8, 1923 - August 18, 2014) - It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Father, Robert William Brown.

Dad was born in Sackville, New Brunswick. Dad enlisted in the RCAF in 1941 and was posted in Hagersville, Ont. where he instructed pilots in Morse code. He spent active duty in both England and Africa.

Dad married our Mother, Marjorie, in 1947. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1951, as an Electrical Engineer. He began his career as a Junior Engineer at Etobicoke Hydro and retired in 1984, after serving as the General Manager in his final years. Dad was respected as a fair and honest man who enjoyed sitting and having a conversation with a CEO just as much as a labourer on a line crew.

After retiring, Mom & Dad enjoyed traveling, spending summers at their trailer in Haliburton and their winters in Florida. We will remember him for his unconditional love, his pure heart, his brilliant mind and his devilish humour.

Dad was predeceased by his loving wife Marjorie, in 2006.

He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his three daughters, Lynda McLeod (Reid), Donna McKay (Bob) and Marilyn Grieco (Frank), his seven grandchildren: Krysta, Hayley, Perri, Jessica, Ashley, Jenna, Matthew and his great grandchildren: Karlene, Kennedy, Tyler, Alyssa, Madison, Jacob, Benjamin, Zachary, and a little one on the way, that we haven’t yet met.

We thank the nursing staff at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital, especially Erin and Renee, for their gentle caring toward our Dad and the comfort they gave to our family.

Cremation has taken place. There will be a short graveside service at Greenwood Cemetery in Georgetown, August 28th at 2:30 p.m., where Dad will join Mom... together again.
