April 29, 2010
The family of Gary James Lorenz wish to announce his sudden passing on April 29, 2010.
Pre-deceased by his first Wife Terry, Daughter Lisa, Father Leonard and Nephew David.
Gary will be forever loved and missed by his spouse Karen Gray, Karen’s children grand-children and great grand-children, his Mother Anne Lorenz, Brother Keith Lorenz and Sister Sherry Youngash. He will also be missed by sons Shawn( Deanna) and Jason. He is greatly missed by his dog Rambo his travelling buddy and Snuffy his beloved cat.
Gary along with his sense of humour will be deeply missed by his special friends Gordon and Theresa Gusafson, Keith Folster, Gary Kehoe and George Bellavance and many others.
Gary enjoyed playing Crib and always said that “his crib players were the top of the line”. His first love was music, this was evident as he was a past drummer and he volunteered to serve coffee just to hear his beloved music and to be involved.
His second love was his bike which he had prepared for the summer – all shiny and ready to go on the open roads.
Gary leaves behind a legacy of love for Karen, the love of his life, for his family and his friends. His open door philosophy was well known.
A Celebration to honour the Life of Gary James Lorenz will be held at 12:30pm on Thursday May 6th 2010 at the Church of the Way, 451 7th Avenue, Campbell River. A Reception will be held after the celebration in the Alano Club, 101 10th Avenue at 1.30p.m.
