Lorne came into the world on August 22, 1945 in Humboldt, SK. While growing up, he enjoyed the mischievous fun he had with his childhood friends and he had many stories to share. Lorne first started to work part-time during high school, at Bauer’s Grocery Store. Later he joined Canada Post where he was employed for over 40 years. He had a keen ability to know every mailbox number and owner by heart in the Humboldt Post Office, as well as shooting flies with a rubber band! Lorne had a great love for antique cars, among other pastimes such as golf, curling, Kaiser, bowling, playing baseball, broomball, and pool, and going camping, boating, and fishing, along with cooking and barbequing with his family. He also loved the Roughriders, but his mood of the day would depend on the outcome of the game. Lorne loved to spend time with family and friends by either entertaining in the family home, the backyard, at the lake, or traveling afar. He loved to boast that he was the favorite uncle to all his beloved nieces and nephews. Always a person who made friends very easily, Lorne knew how to provide witty jokes, in any situation, to make others laugh. His fun and bright attitude, and his loving nature, were revealed in his colourful shirts and socks. Lorne, we will miss your many positive traits, including your helpful advice, the way you always provided a helping hand, your caring and generous heart, and your thoughtful knack for always buying the perfect gift. Lorne is survived by his loving family: his wife of 51 years, Thelma (née Wourms); his sons: Jason (Lise) Gasmo, and family, Austin (Dominique) and Indiana, Merah, Lachlan, Kyler, Annie, and Dashel, Wade, and Curtis (Erica), and family, Ava, Gabriella, and Samuel; his twin sister, Linda Pray; and by numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Jalmar and Mathilda (née Schikowsky) Gasmo, his brothers Ken, Ernie (Jolly), and Mervin, and his niece Shannon.
