Please accept my condolences to family and friends. Lorne will hold a special place in my heart because of the way he treated people in a kind and respectful manner,. Love and prayers to the family. Albert (Alana)

Peace be with you, Lezlie. I was your mailman in Penticton 10 years ago. I so enjoyed frequent random visits with Lorne through the open garage. His smile and zest of happiness always made it a pleasure to spend time with him. I will remember him as a kind, thoughtful and positive man. A pleasure to meet and know.

Dear Lezlie, I met Lorne when he was seven and I started dating his older brother Al, he was such a cute kid and I still remember one night when their mother went to a CWL meeting and there was a phone call and someone answered and said "Is this urgent and he said no it's Lorne" Al and I asked Lorne to be Amber's godfather even though he was only 16 and I think he was a great role model for her, even though we have been far apart for so many years please know that I am thinking about you and your Lorne Love Patti

My sincerest condolensces to family and friends of my dear friend Lorne. We were roomates back in the day when he had his Beaumont and I was in my Chevy II. I have many fond memories from that time. Lorne was one of the most likeable people I have ever known. He and I would pick out random albums from the bargain bin that looked cool, and got some beauties. I looked some of those up recently and had a listen. Everything came flooding back about Lorne and those good times in Saskatoon. So I want to recommend one for you that we both celebrated as an under the radar hit. It's Jackson Hawke's song called Set Me Free. Wishing you a safe journey Lorne! I'll see you when I get there.

Shocked and saddened to hear of Lorne’s passing. Although we had not seen each other in a good many years, I still considered him a good friend and will miss him.

Lezlie I am so sorry to hear of Lorne's passing It's been a lot of years since we saw you last and please know we are thinking of you. Russ and Lynne Mault
