I have some fond memories of Lorne during my time in Prince George. He was a professional at his position in Telecoms. He lived a good life. He will be missed. My condolence to the family.

I had the pleasure of knowing Lorne when I was in Penticton in 1969 and later in Haney when I worked traffic there in 1970/71. He was always a joy to be around. I've thought of him many times over the years. Sad to hear of his passing. My condolences to all the family.
