On December 31, 2020, Lamont passed away peacefully with his family at his side. He was born in Prince George, BC on August 13, 1943. Lamont is predeceased by his parents, Allan and Olga Stevens; and brother-in-law, Niels Kristensen. He is survived by his wife of 47 yrs, Genie; daughters, Sara (Steve) and Lisa (Trevor); and grandchildren, Marcus, Isaac, Rosie, and Hannah. Lamont also leaves behind three younger sisters, Anita, Yvonne (Perry), and Lenora (Dale); as well as many extended family members.

Lamont felt so very lucky to have spent his childhood at his family's sawmill camps (Salmon Valley, Mile 4, and Kerry Lake). He loved everything camp-life had to offer — a close knit community, full access to nature, baseball, and opportunities to learn about and run machinery. Lamont attended the University of Oregon (BSc in Economics) and then worked briefly for the government before venturing out on his own to invest in properties and stocks. He had the freedom to do what he wanted, which was to enjoy a slower life with his family living in the country at Verdant and Nukko Lakes.

Lamont loved spirited talks about politics with friends, rounds of golf (however frustrating), curling, playing ball and tennis, downhill skiing, and canoeing. He was an avid reader with a particular interest in history. He could fix and rig up anything, from a toaster to a DC CAT. He was our MacGyver. Lamont was genuinely interested in the lives of his friends and acquaintances. He enjoyed their stories and if there was humour involved, all the better. Often, he would be chuckling days later. Lamont will certainly be remembered for his unique sense of humour. He told a joke well, orchestrated a good gag, and appreciated and shared life's comical absurdities. He found a special way to share this sense of humour with his grandchildren, whom he adored.

We will cherish the many wonderful memories of Lamont and will miss him dearly. There will be no service by request.

Very intelligent man that loved my friend Genie. He had a cute smile and you knew he was observing everyone and everything around him!

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Lamont. Cherished memories were created in the recent past when he occasionally dropped by as well as in long ago times in "camp days" at Mil 4 and Kerry Lake. I extend my love and deepest sympathy to Genie and family and Lamont's sisters, Anita, Yvonne, Lenora and their families.

Condolences to you and your families: Genie, Lisa, Sara, Anita, Yvonne, Lenora
I recall the many summer and fall visits to Prince George. The ‘late Fred’ always wanted to be sure there was enough time left in the trip North to visit Lamont and Genie, whether it was it was at their home in Verdant or Nukko Lakes. Both, Fred and Lamont had similar interests: politics, investments, sports , family talks; definitely not shopping. In the past year, Lamont phoned frequently to see how cousin Fred was doing. Lamont will be sadly missed by all of us. Perhaps, the cousins have met.
In Deepest sympathy

So sad. He was one of the "rocks" in our family. Solid.
Hoping it provides some comfort to each of you knowing that although Lamont enjoyed a very quiet life, it touched and impacted many.

My condolences to Genie and Family. I really got to know Lamont more in the last few months by going for walks and talking to him on the phone, we mostly talked about our growing up in Prince George. I always liked to mention humorous things that had happen, for it was easy to make Lamont laugh even through his last days I admired Lamont for how strong and brave he was preparing for his final days I will always carry those memories.
So long my Friend

I'm saddened to learn of Lamont's passing. He was a model of decency, kindness and common sense, and I admired him for that as well as his sense of humour. I was privileged to speak with Lamont about a month ago and he spoke bravely about this day and how he was preparing for it. As usual, he was strong and logical. I will miss him and our many interesting conversations. My sincere condolences to Genie and family.

It's with a heavy heart that I read Lamont's obituary. My condolences to Genie and his family. Lamont and I spent many hours on Skype trying to solve the problems of the world, country, province and city. I always looked forward to our conversations. A true friend who sought the truth and possessed an uncommon measure of common sense. RIP, my dear friend.
