Lorne Tubman

Obituary

Lorne Henry Tubman passed away peacefully after a long battle with dementia.  

He leaves to mourn his 3 daughters Ramona, Tammy and Tanya, his grandchildren, Ellx, Jared, Zariah, Zander and Zayden, his brothers Cliff, Neil, Ben, and their families as well as numerous friends and relatives.  

He was predeceased by his brother Darrell in 2011, daughter Pamela in 2019 and his wife Rena in 2003, who he missed very much.  

Dad grew up in Shawville Quebec. As a young man, he travelled and worked various jobs across Canada and the US. While in Winnipeg he met a beautiful young lady from Norway House named Rena and ended up marrying her and having 4 daughters. They lived in Norway House and Sudbury for a while before eventually settling in Winnipeg. 

Dad had a few different jobs before working almost 20 years at Livingston Distributors in the warehouse and as a truck driver. Dad was a hard worker who always made sure his family’s needs were met. He loved finding good deals and was always scoping out the best price.  

After losing Mom, he busied himself with travel and went on tours in Europe, Israel, Egypt and Jordan, he also visited his daughter Ramona and her family when she lived in various places in the US and in India.  

Anyone who met my dad knew he loved to chat, he would tell stories and show photos of his travels to his friends, family, neighbours, store clerks and anyone who would listen.  

In 2017 he was diagnosed with dementia, by 2019 he needed to be in care. Over time, due to his illness, he sadly lost his ability to speak. In the last few years before this happened, he would talk about my mom a lot. He really missed her. 

We love you and will miss you Dad, but know you are with Mom now.  

Special thanks to the staff at the Deer Lodge Centre and to the Alzheimer’s Society of Manitoba.
