After a courageous battle with cancer, in his 66th year, Warren left Lisaard House Hospice to “Ride his Harley in the sky.”
Leaving behind his wife of 39 years, Carolyn (Lengyell), daughter Heidi, son Darren (Steph), precious grandsons Brody and Lucas. Survived by his mom (99th year) Rose Rivers, his sister Karen Dill, his brother Robin Rivers and his sister-in-laws Judy (Rivers) and Heather (Lengyell). Predeceased by his dad Bruce Rivers, brother-in-laws Merv Dill and Joe Lengyell, nephew Ryan Dill, and his mother-in-law Ruth Lengyell.
In 1977 when Warren and Carolyn met, Warren had his own body shop where he did meticulous autobody work on a range of vehicles from customizing to painting. In September of 1977 with marriage and family plans, Warren started a career at Cambridge Brass (1977 – 2012). He retired at 60 years old to enjoy his family, Tim Horton’s coffee, trips to Florida with our great friend Grant and most of all, no alarm clock so he could ride his candy apple red Harley (his pride and joy) with the Delta Riders.
As per Warren’s wishes, cremation has taken place (Warren designed his own urn and plaque). There will be no funeral, but a Celebration of Life will be held in Glen Morris on June 2, 2018; the day of “Ride for Dad” which Warren and Heidi always attended. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lisaard House.
“Ride on husband, dad, pa, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and great friend.”
