Lorne was born in Spy Hill, SK. He enjoyed being outdoors, hunting and fishing or skidooing and quading at the farm. Playing hockey was a passion for Lorne as a young man, then he enjoyed curling for many years. Family was an important part of Lorne’s life; visiting his brothers and sisters in Edmonton, Winnipeg and Saskatchewan. After working in the oil and gas industry as a heavy-duty mechanic, Lorne used his ingenuity to design covered trailers for his own enterprise, Trailers Unlimited. The true love of Lorne’s life was cars, especially Cadillacs.
The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Colleen Friesen for her kindness, support and quick thinking that kept Lorne safe for the last number of years.
