It is with loving memories that we say goodbye to Laurie! On Friday the 13 with his family by his side in the CCU at Jubilee Hospital, Laurie slipped away. Laurie was deeply loved and is fondly remembered by Louise, wife of 55 years; children, Roger (Stephanie), Judy (Jay), Steve (Carole), Tom (Stacey). We are sure he will be enjoying the company of Kevin(1970-1997) and Benny once again. Laurie's grandchildren were his pride and joy; Shanna (Mike), Jeremy (Jen), Taylor, Madison, Quin, Jesse (Alison), Shayne (Aaron), Chris, Zach, Nick, Sam, and great-granddaughter Gwen. He also leaves behind his brother Bob (Janet), and many close relatives and friends. Laurie was born in Edmonton and moved to Kimberley,BC where he enjoyed his youth. He was quite the gymnast and swimmer and would travel to surrounding towns to train other young athletes. After joining The Navy in 1954 Laurie was stationed in Victoria. He served for 26 years, retiring in 1980 and then went on to work at Rocky Point for 19 years. Laurie was a quiet gentle man who loved to spend time fishing, bird watching, camping and taking in the beautiful walks at Tower Point. He also loved to attend many different sporting events. One of his favorite spots was spending time at "The Shack". Family was everything to Laurie. It didn't matter what city, Victoria, Calgary or Minnesota, he would be there to support any event his kids or grandkids were in.
We love you and will miss you... No service or flowers by request, condolences may be offered to the family at www.carefuneral.com
