GRAND BANK, NL – A man with the distinction of being the longest-serving member of Grand Bank council has died.
The Town of Grand Bank acknowledged Warren’s death in an email to residents on Monday morning, March 5.
Warren served as a councillor and deputy mayor with the town for 35 years, right up until last year when he did not run in the 2017 municipal election. It is the longest stint for anyone since the town was incorporated in 1943.
“Bruce served on council with pride, and volunteered over half his life working on behalf of the town and its people,” the email read.
“He treated everyone with respect, fairness, courtesy, and in accordance with the operational procedures of the town.”
Warren, who was 64, was recently recognized by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment for his long contribution to the community.
