Lorne Elmer Tingstad

Lorne Elmer Tingstad


July 17, 1935 – November 18, 2013


Lorne was born in Valleyview Alberta, but moved to Vancouver Island when he was young. His life-long career as a logger saw him live in many towns in

the East Kootenay Trench and he and his family eventually settled in Westbank in 1972 where he spent the remainder of his years. Lorne loved spending life in the outdoors, especially if it involved fishing or hunting and  was certainly more at home in the bush than in any city.  His life long skills as a precision logger also came in handy when, in his later years, he  took on the role of “neighbourhood logger” of

Pineridge Place.

Lorne will be greatly missed by his wife of 57 years, Doreen, his children Ron(Ruth) ,Julie Hughes(Mick), Kerry(Sheila), Brent(Lori) and his grandchildren, Michael, Andrew, Matthew, Laura, Colby, Ken, Nolan and Jamie, as well as his many brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends.

Service will be held Saturday November 23 @ 1:30pm at the Emmanuel Church in Westbank.

The family gives their heart felt thanks to Dr. Verster and all of the Lorne’s loving caregivers at Cottonwoods and Brookhaven. Lorne loved all of you.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Brookhaven or Cottonwoods are greatly appreciated.
