Lorne Douglas Tice August 18, 1942 - December 26, 2019
TICE - Lorne Douglas passed away peacefully with family by his side in Welland on Thursday, December 26, 2019 at the age of 77 years. Leaving home at 18 to pursue his career, Lorne never lost touch with his Bethel farm boy roots. He worked hard, obtaining his CMA and CPA accounting designations at night while working at Atlas Steels, then moving to senior positions with Bright’s Foods and Procter & Gamble.
In retirement, he made deliveries to residents of Fonthill and Welland for Shoppers Drug Mart, a job he loved. He also played hard. Lorne had a lifelong passion for hockey, which he played well into his 60s and coached for many years in Pelham and Welland. He also enjoyed many hunting and fishing trips with family and friends. His primary joy was his family, for whom he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather and to whom he provided constant love, advice, support, and humour, even to his final days. He led a happy life, always with a smile, a joke, or a kind word for those around him.
Predeceased by his father Carman Tice (1955) and his mother Vera Tice (2011). He will be sadly missed by his wife Joyce Tice, his children Charlene (David) Duliban and Kevin (Anne-Marie) Tice, his grandchildren Nathaniel, Joseph, Charlotte, Isabelle and Sophia, and his siblings George (Coba), Gordon (Helen) and Margaret (Ron). Special thanks go to brother-in-law Jesse Adams for his help with many hospital trips. The Funeral Service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1557 Pelham Street, Fonthill on Saturday, January 25th, 11:00 a.m. followed by a reception.
In keeping with Lorne’s wishes, cremation has already taken place and a private interment will follow at a later date in Overholt Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
