Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I had the pleasure of living down the road from Lorne and his family. Will always remember the little white ford ranger that Lorne had put together for himself with a built up 302 V8 you would of thought it came that way from Ford. Lorne took great pride in his work and could machine you anything you need. My Dad Ron worked with Lorne at Selkirk Generating Station aswell where over the years he got the pleasure of watching Lorne machine and make all sorts of parts and got to hear all lorne's Metzler & McNeil Vega wagon drag racing stories from bison dragway. He will be greatly missed but most importantly remembered by everyone he graced. - Posted by: Dan & Ron Klim (Neighbour, friend, coworker. ) on: Nov 05, 2022
