LORRIE JOHN CHOPTUIK It is with great sadness and heartache that we announce the passing of Lorrie on August 17, 2012, at the Queensway Carleton Hospital/Palliative Care at the age of 54 years after losing a battle with cancer. Left to mourn Lorrie's passing is his beloved wife Debbie; his father John; his two children (Melisa and Ryan); four grandchildren (Dynika, Rahaine, Kadin, Tristin); three sisters (Arlene, Virginia, Maria); two brothers (Joey, Randy); as well as numerous relatives and friends. He is predeceased by his mother, Annette. Lorrie was born in Shoal Lake, Manitoba, raised and went to school in Churchbridge, Saskatchewan. Once school was completed, Lorrie moved on to Winnipeg where he held multiple positions for over 25 years within the Provincial Government. Lorrie moved on to Ottawa in 2001, to start a new career with CGI in the functional consulting field. During this time in Ottawa, Lorrie was fortunate enough to meet the love of his life Debbie and they were married in July 2011. Over the nine years together they were able to travel a lot of the world as this was one of Lorrie's passions. Lorrie dedicated many hours to the passions in his life, curling, water skiing, slow pitch, golfing, cubs and scout organizations. Lorrie also was a Past President of the Victoria Curling Club in Winnipeg. To honor Lorrie's wishes, a private family Funeral Service will be held at a later date. Lorrie's wishes were to thank everyone that spent time with him and lent a helping hand in his time of need. Donations in Lorrie's memory may be made to the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Center, 3045 Baseline Road, Ottawa, ON. Condolences, donations and tributes may be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com
