Donald Gustave Lorentz
Passed on April 8, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce Donald Gustave Lorentz passed away on April 8, 2019 at Concordia Hospital at the age of 73 after a lengthy illness and fall. All who knew Don in his final years of failing health marveled at his courageous attitude and ability to persevere through it all. Don’s loving wife Joan of 52 years, sons Cory (Sherrie) and their children Kaden, Braelynn and Ashton, as well as Chris (Stacy) and Chris’s children TJ and Austin and Stacy’s children Cam and Nate, remember Don. His sister Audrey (Kelvin) and brother Bob (Karen) survive Don. His parents Gustave and Alma Lorentz predeceased Don. Don was born in Winnipeg on June 6th, 1945. He attended school and graduated from Tech Voc High School. At a very early age he worked part-time for the City of Winnipeg. In 1970 he was offered full time employment. He operated specialty heavy equipment, became a foreman and was later elevated to foremen-3 position until his retirement. Don retired after 47 ½ years of service with the City of Winnipeg. Don found great enjoyment and pleasure by visiting family and friends, good food, and as he said, good company. His grandchildren were his greatest joy; he loved spending time with them. Don was a lifetime member and board member of Lutheran Church of the Cross. We recognize Neil & Erna Martin and Jules & Heather Brunel as Honorary Pallbearers. At Don’s request, he wished to have his grandchildren, two sons, and Brian Colbert to be Pallbearers. A funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm on Monday April 15, 2019 at Wojcik Funeral Chapel, 1020 Main Street, Winnipeg, MB. Viewing will take place prior to the Service. Interment will be the following day at Windsor Cemetery in Teulon, MB with the immediate family.
