WEALICK, Lawrence Steve

March 18, 1947 – March 23, 2013

Passed away in Campbell River, on March 23, 2013. Lorne was predeceased by his mother, Dorothy, father, Solomon, brothers; Eddie, Norman, Henry and Gerald and sisters; June and Doris. Lorne is survived by his sons Matthew (Krista) of Chilliwack, BC and Steven (Cynthia) of Castlegar, BC and grandchildren; Bridger and Jairdan.

Lorne was a logger from 1968 to 2002 out of the Kelsey Bay Division. Lorne enjoyed and took pride in his job on the rigging and at the sort. He made many good long term friends among his fellow workers.

Lorne was an avid fisherman, enjoying every minute he could on the straits outside of Kelsey Bay. He loved being on the water fishing or just beachcombing the local beaches with his two boys Matt and Steven. Lorne also enjoyed nature and would enjoy just driving the back roads to pass the time.

Lorne was a loving father and good provider to his sons. He was someone who was always willing to help a person in need. Lorne had a quirky sense of humour and was always able to put a smile on your face. Lorne was a true story teller and was always willing to tell a story to those who would listen.

Lorne was loved, respected and he will be missed.
