Rogers, Lorne

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing our beloved Lorne on February 8, 2013. He fought his brief illness with the same dignity, sense of humor and immense courage that he showed during his lifetime. Lorne played many sports in his youth and later developed a love of golf and travel. He was an avid soccer fan. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 42 years, Lynn, his cherished children Scott, Erin (Andres), Kim, grandchildren Sam and Lucia, Siblings Greg (Brenda), Anita (Harry), Bryn (Dennis), many nieces and nephews, our many friends and his colleagues in the lumber industry that he so loved. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 – 28 Avenue, Surrey. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Lorne’s name to SPCA or Salvation Army.

I have special memories of Lorne when we shared an apartment in the West End of Vancouver in 1968/69 before we both married . I remember the red convertible Mustang and a lot of fun times.
Lynn please accept our condolences

Dear Lynn, Erin, Kim and Scott,
I am deeply sorry for the loss of your husband and father. Over many years Lorne has always welcomed me and made me feel at home wherever you lived, from the memories of Sherwood Park, to your visits to Edmonton, to my visits to Vancouver. I will always remember Lorne as a warm, kind and gentle person. I have good memories of watching soccer games on tv and late night chats when I visited White Rock. Please know he will live on through each of you, speak of him often and smile when you think of him, I will too. Love to all of you. Thinking of you and hope to see you soon. Carol and family.

Dear Lynn,
My heart goes out to you and your family at the loss of your wonderful husband and father. It was with a tear in my eye, yet a smile on my face, as I scrolled though the many happy photos of Lorne's life well lived.

I have very warm memories of working with Lorne through the lumber industry, your visits to Eugene enroute to taking Erin to USF for college, golfing with Lorne and a lovely dinner with you both at The Seasons on my trip up there.

I will always remember Lorne as a dear friend and a wonderful family man.
Sincerely,
Dale Blomberg

I want to extend my deepest sympathies, was very sad to hear of Lorne's passing, he was a wonderful man.
"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love."

Dear Lynn
I was so sorry to hear about Lorne's passing and your experience of the abrupt progression of his illness. I only met Lorne once but thoroughly enjoyed my time with him. I am out of the country so will not be able to attend the service but want you to know that you are on my mind and in my heart. My condolences to you, your children and grandchildren.
