Lorne’s humor and wisdom will be missed by all who truly knew him. His life will continue to be celebrated by his wife of 65 years, Marion Sim (nee Yeandle); brother, LaVerne; and sister, Evelyn; brother-in-law, Lyle; sisters-in-law, Frances, and Marguerite; sons, Ken (Karen) and Norman Carter-Sim (Jocelyn); grandchildren, Jaime, Bonnie, Kellie, Findley, Roxanne (Chris), Scott; and great grandson, Griffin; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Lorne was predeceased by his father, Gordon; mother, Eva; brother, Clarke; sisters-in-law, Bertha, Cecile, Dorothy, Jean, and Marg; brothers-in-law, Bill, Earl, Elmer, Norm, and Ray.
Lorne worked at various vocations throughout his life, including cheese maker, and truck driver, before settling into a successful career with Alfa-Laval Ltd., until his retirement, in 1990.
The Alberta Dairymen’s Association awarded Lorne Life membership, February 1989; The Manitoba Dairy Association conferred an Honorary Life Membership March 1989,and The National Dairy Council of Canada elected Lorne as Honorary Member, September 1991. After retirement, Lorne and Marion spent numerous occasions entertaining and educating their grandchildren (much to their parents chagrin).
At Lorne’s request, there will not be a memorial service. Lorne’s family encourages friends, colleagues, and relatives to celebrate and remember Lorne’s life at a time and place, and in a manner of their own choosing.
Lorne’s family wish to thank all those who assisted Lorne and Marion as they have grown older. Your thoughts, words, and actions demonstrate the true meaning and value of community.
Je Suis Prêt – I am ready.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Lorne John Sim of Edmonton Alberta
