Lorne Dennis Smuland, loving husband of Sharon Rose Smuland, passed away peacefully at Innisfail, Alberta, on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at the age of 80 years. Lorne was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan and lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Kelowna, British Columbia, Calgary, Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta and Red Deer, Alberta. Lorne loved spending time with family, friends and was a lover of dogs and cats. Lorne will always be remembered for his zest for life and nature; as well as his ability to make people laugh, despite his disabilities. Lorne loved German Short-Haired Pointers, all animals, the Legion, his walks, golf, his favorite B.C. Lions, baseball, hockey and his beloved cartoons. He was an amazing chef and baker and his love of good food had a way of bringing family together. Dad would want to be remembered and his life celebrated with a small smash, a glass of red wine, a laugh and tell stories, eat cake or pie, a chocolate bar, a banana split, fish and chips, and a donut. So celebrate his life and accomplishments. He’s at peace and not suffering any longer.
