Lorne Hambleton Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorne Hambleton on March 23, 2024 in Calgary, AB after a lengthy battle with cancer.  He left peacefully in his home, surrounded by his family, just as he wished.

Lorne (also known as “Butch”) was born and raised in Thompson, MB, spending most of his life there until meeting his wife Tamara where they moved to Toronto, ON to start a new life and start a family.  His final five years were in Calgary when he decided that extended family was more important for his little girl than the downtown city life.

Lorne is predeceased by his parents, Floyd and Johanna and leaves to mourn his wife Tamara, daughter Lauren, brother Trevor (Tracey), stepfather Wade, nieces, nephews and many extended family members and countless friends and colleagues.

Lorne loved sports, music, and the mountains.  He was an avid golfer, starting as a youth at the Thompson Golf Club, a bowler – enjoying Friday night and Sunday leagues, a baseball enthusiast supporting the Blue Jays, and enjoyed his NFL Sundays, fantasy pools, and travelling to seek out events in all areas in cities across the continent.  His yearly golf trip to Southern Dunes with the boys was always a highlight of his year.

Lorne was passionate about his family and his career.  He started his career in the electronics industry and even when living outside of his hometown, people would stop him on the street referencing the Queen of Hearts.  He then moved to the mining and procurement industry with Inco/Vale and Minto Metals, again making a positive impact within the industry while making friends and lasting relationships along the way. 

Lorne leaves an everlasting impression with us all as he has brought laughter, love, and fun into our lives. A special thanks to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Palliative Home Care and Paramed Nursing for the exceptional care that was received.

In lieu of flowers, please donate in Lorne’s memory to the Jays Care Foundation or the Thompson Golf Club.
A Celebration of Life will be held on  Friday, April 5, 2024 at 1:00 pm at Evan J. Strong Funeral Services South (5502 2nd St SW).
