Laurie passed away peacefully August 30 on his way home from Klemtu, BC.
He enjoyed looking out over the water, walking the pier and watching the community grow.
He was a graduate of UBC Municipal Accounting, and worked in many beautiful BC communities.
In his later years with his passion for helping others (and with a little fly fishing on the side), he and Mom moved temporarily to many First Nations reserves.
He also volunteered with the CESO Aboriginal Services.
Predeceased by his sister Beverly Rumble (Kenny), he is survived by brother Rev. Hugh and sister Fran Ewan (Morven).
He will be missed by his wife Gail of 45 years and their children, Bonnie (Pastor Elwyn Fast), son Dan (Sue), Shannon Bullock (Rob), grandchildren Alyssa, Jaylen, Ian and James.
At Laurie’s request a private family celebration of life was held.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to New Life Mission Japan c/o Southgate Church, Langley, BC.
