November 8, 1935 - September 13, 2013

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 Royal Jubilee Hospital, Laurie
slipped away from us. 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 an
active 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. One of his favorite spots to
putter about was at “The Shack”. Laurie never complained about what he
watched, be it ballet recitals, figure skating, school plays or synchronized
swimming. His passion was more towards hockey, lacrosse, motor cross,
curling and BMX racing though! 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..
