Peacefully at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital on Thursday, February 18, 2021, Lorne Whiting of Mount Brydges in his 94th year.
Beloved husband of the late Helen (nee: Spenceley, 2009). Loving father of Dave (the late Jane, 2019) Whiting, Brian (Karin) Whiting, Deb (Don) Albrechtas, and the late Doug Whiting (1975). Proud grandpa of Jessica Whiting (Anthony Snook), April Whiting (Matt Davies), Josh (Katherine) Albrechtas and great - grandpa of Makenzie, Bailey, Owen, and Parker. Lorne will be very much missed by his companion Margaret “Marnie” Barney and her daughters Lois and Brenda. Predeceased by his parents Ralph (1979) and Mary (1979) Whiting.
Lorne was a well-known farmer in the area, a member of the Masonic Lodge – St. Johns #81, and a long time VON volunteer. He will be fondly remembered for his great sense of humour and his creativity and skill with welding. His well-organized shop was filled with a carefully curated collection of anything anyone could ever need for their next metalworks project or repair and he was always happy to help with tips, tools, or parts whenever needed.
The family would like to thank the staff at both Strathroy Hospital 1 South and Seasons of Strathroy for the care and compassion shown to Lorne in the recent months.
Per Lorne’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment Mount Brydges Cemetery on a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers that memorial contributions be made to a charitable organization of your choice. Elliott – Madill Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements. www.elliottmadill.com
