It is with sadness that we announce the quiet and peaceful passing of Lorne Robson on Monday, May 4, 2020 at the age of 71 years.

Lorne was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1949. He moved to Vancouver in 1966. He worked at Pemberton Shell where he met his gorgeous wife Sonja in 1968. Together Lorne and Sonja opened Pemberton Automotive in North Vancouver in 1986 and ran it for 20 years. They retired and moved to the Kootenays, living there for 10 years before finally moving to Chilliwack. Lorne loved to fish and the family camping trips to Horse Lake.
