Warren K. MacDonald

February 26th, 2021

August 5, 1934 – February 25, 2021. Warren MacDonald went home to be with the Lord while surrounded by his wife, Maureen and family members. Warren and Maureen’s was a true love story. They began dating as teenagers, and were married for an incredible 63 years! They raised their four children in Wilmington, MA. Warren was known for his sense of humor and positive outlook on life. In fact he was known throughout his Assisted Living and Dialysis facilities as “Mr. Tremendous” due to his positive outlook on life.

Warren was a man of deep faith who enjoyed reading and watching New England sports. His love for the Bruins was so prevalent that some of his youngest daughter’s first words were “Bobby Orr score”! He served in the U.S. Navy from 1955 – 1959. Through the years, Warren worked at First National grocery store as a produce manager as well as Reading and Wilmington Vacuum (at the shop owned by his son).

Warren is survived by his adoring wife Maureen (O’Donnell) and his four children: Alan & Melanie MacDonald of New Britain, CT and their children Matthew & Ashley MacDonald, Sean MacDonald & Heather Miron and great-grandson Alexander and Jason Burzynski, Linda & Ed Mucci of Windham, NH and their children Jillian Mucci and husband Jeremiah O’Neill, Janelle Mucci and husband Colin Perry, Jim MacDonald & John Jalbert of Salem, MA and Christina & Keith Harris of Merrimac, MA and their son Paul & Meghan Clark. He will also be missed by his many wonderful nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express their deep gratitude for the wonderful care shown to Warren at Atria Longmeadow Senior Living – the ‘tremendous’ staff led by Michele Ellis and in particular, Warren’s special friends Mary and Doug made his stay there much more meaningful and enjoyable. They would likewise like to express their appreciation for the caring attitude shown by the team at DaVita Dialysis. He also received great care in his final days through Compassionate Care Hospice. We are eternally grateful.

Due to COVID restrictions, funeral services will be private for immediate family. A Celebration of Life event will be held at a future date.

    It is with great sadness that we hear of Warren’s passing. We spent many Saturday nights at the Methodist Church sharing their dinners. They were a wonderful couple and I am sure Maureen’s heart is broken. May he rest in peace and may the family find peace in the memories they will all remember.

    Maureen and Christina. Not sure if you remember me but I attended First Baptist with you. I remains good friends with the Ings. I just happen to come across this by accident. I am sorry about Warren. At least we know that he is walking the streets of gold. May God Bless you and comfort you in these very difficult days. Remember the good times.
