It was an absolute honour to work with Warren and his family in 2015-16 on what would become The Inventive Life of Warren Smith. We spent many beautiful afternoons pouring over photo albums, and eating the muffins I would bring for us to snack on. We recorded his experiences growing up in Edmonton, his struggles enlisting in the RCAF and what it was like serving in Burma during the Second World War. He also shared his hard-won wisdom, his limitless love for his family, and his deep faith.
Warren turned 100 years on September 24th and was feted by family, friends, as well as servicemen from his wartime air squadron out of Winnipeg.
