Lorne loved his family! He loved the spirit of the children around him. He was often referred to as the “Big Bear” but a “Gentle Big Bear” he was. Lorne also loved model airplanes, boats and ham radios! His articulate personality allowed him to construct model radio-controlled airplanes. Ham Radio construction was another hobby he enjoyed. It allowed him to build a radio from scratch then talk to people all over the world.
