He retired from Heritage Propane in 1998 after more than 26 years of service as a truck driver, which was a job he truly loved. Other activities Lorne enjoyed before his illness was fishing, gardening and collecting antiques. And he wasn’t afraid to let you know who his favorite team was…the Tennessee Vols. The Cincinnati Reds were his second favorite.
