Warren Winn, 67, a lifelong resident of West Newfield, passed away on August 27, 2020 at his home, surrounded in love by his family.
Warren was born at home in West Newfield on August 29, 1952, the son of Frank W. and Agnes G. (Mee) Winn. He attended local schools and graduated from Massabesic High School. Following high school, Warren joined the U.S. Army and served from 1971 – 1972.
As a youngster, Warren grew up farming and began logging with his brothers, dragging 4-foot pulp with a farm tractor and loading it by hand. He eventually became self-employed and ran his own business: driving logging trucks, plowing snow and road maintenance. Two years ago, he retired from the Town of Wakefield, NH where he managed the transfer station and the waste-water department. Even with his days off and being retired, Warren worked part-time for his son Daniel. His strong worth ethic was engrained into his moral compass.
Warren met his future wife Stephanie when she visited her Aunt, who lived in the farm across from the Winn farm. Her Aunt Mary made sure to tell her, “You stay away from the Winn Boys!” Well, love has a funny way of bringing people together. . . Stephanie and Warren married at the Province Lake Country Club and have shared 38 years together. They built their home together and welcomed three children into their hearts and home.
Warren’s favorite hobby was spending time with his family. He was kind, patient, quiet and gentle. Warren always thought of others first, even while he was working at the transfer station, if you needed a shovel, lawn mower, toys for kids – It didn’t matter, he’d bring it home, repair it and pass it along.
Warren’s entire life revolved around his children, his grandchildren and his beautiful wife Stephanie. Every decision he made; it was made in the best interest of his family. Warren will be remembered for his gentle spirit and his devotion to his family. Your life and love will be dearly missed.
Warren is lovingly survived by his best friend and wife, Stephanie Winn, his two sons Ryan Winn and wife Amanda, Daniel Winn and wife Christina, and daughter Emily Winn all of West Newfield; his seven grandchildren Jacob, Karly, Makenna, Paisley, Wesley, Carter and Waylon who called him “Papa” and his siblings, Roger, Shirley, Ann, Beverly, Helen and Arnold; his mother-in-law Norma Coolbroth, his sisters-in-law Wendy McGlincey, Donna Johnson and husband John, his brother-in-law Edwin Coolbroth and wife Patty, and many nieces and nephews as well as some very special extended family members Janet Fairfull and her children Payton and Chase.
Warren was predeceased by his parents and a brother Robert.
