Lavern was born June 2, 1947 in Saskatoon, SK and passed away on January 31, 2015 at the Red Deer Hospice.

He was raised in St. Walburg along with his five brothers and two sisters.  Lavern made a living driving truck, farming and carpentry, all of which he enjoyed to do. When he wasn't working, he loved to travel, seeing a lot of the countryside with his family.  Lavern had great passions in life, such as hunting, fishing, animals, and the great outdoors. He took great pride in being a member and President of the St. Walburg Royal Canadian Legion.  When he did retire, Lavern was content to enjoy the peace and quiet of a small town. He was an avid reader and you would find him every morning on the deck with a coffee, a western paperback and his kitties.

Lavern leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife Carole; two sons: Lee (Wendy) of Lashburn, SK., Wade (Penny) of Lloydminster, SK., two daughters; Kim (Ray) of Islay, AB., Tina (Ken) of Kelowna, BC., and two step-children; April (D’Arcy) of Medicine Hat, AB., Darry of Calgary, AB; ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.  In addition, Lavern leaves behind one brother Wayne (Christine) of Leduc, AB., and two sisters: Carol (John) of Winnipeg, MB. and Dianne (Blair) of Calgary, AB.  Lavern was predeceased by his father and mother Philip and Joyce and four brothers: David, Ron, Leonard and Donnie.

At his request, no service will be held. The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude for the many kindnesses, prayers and sympathies extended during this time.

    So sorry you have to suffer another lose. I recall many memories of Lavern and his automobiles as a young person many years back. I also recall when Lavern moved to Edmonton years ago and he and I chummed around some. We got along quite well and had some good times. I am sorry he had to leave us. I hope that one day soon there will be a cure found for that dread-full decease cancer that has affected so many.
    May the breeze and sun bring peace to you all.
