Conn Lorry July

1930-2021 Lorry’s life was well lived and he was well loved! The Lord called him home in a peaceful manner at the Kaslo Hospital with his family by his side, on Thursday July 22, 2021 at the age of 90.

His most proud achievement in life was marrying his wife Rose who supported him in all his endeavors throughout life. Lorry will be forever remembered for his beautiful smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, loving embrace and unconditional love.  Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is in heaven watching over us.

Lorry was born in Coronach, Sask. Lorry joined the Canadian Air Force in 1949.  In 1953 he met the love of his life, Rosalie Mack and they wed in 1954, going on to have 2 beautiful girls, Patricia and Pamela. Lorry served our country for 25 years – stationed in Ontario, Germany, and his last post in Edmonton.

Lorry was also a passionate curler and could often be found at the Kaslo Curling Club. At home, he would be found in his yard looking after his beautifully manicured garden.  His other favorite love was fishing. Lorry was lucky enough to be able to live his dream when he moved his family to Schroeder Creek – he could fish anytime he wanted. He organized fishing derbys, put night lines out for ling cod, and put in uncountable hours trolling Kootenay lake. He was able to catch his share of big Rainbows and more Kokanee than most people could ever imagine.

Anyone who knew Lorry knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for. Lorry was predeceased by his parents Jim and Irene ,  5 siblings, and his daughter Patricia. He is survived by his wife Rose of 67 years, his daughter Pamela (Travis), his granddaughters Katie, Lexi, and Andie, his son-in-law Norman, his grandchildren Treena (Doug) and Aaron (Kelley) and his great grandchildren Anna and Owen.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Kaslo Victorian Hospital and we are forever grateful that dad was able to stay in his home town.

Warm condolences to the family. Lorry was a very fine gentleman. I met him many years ago when he would come to the Argenta Bakery for bread.
