BLASER, Lorenz Paul
(12 Feb 1916-6 March 2008)
23 days into his 93rd year
Our dear Lorrie died quietly at his home on Thursday March 6. son of Pioneers and a pioneer himself, Lorenz Paul (Lorrie) BLASER was born at his parents' homestead in Saskatchewan where they farmed after immigrating to Canada in the 1890's. Growing up, his family realized that, while he wouldn't make a good farmer, Lorenz loved mathematics, so they found the money to send him to high school and university in Saskatoon where he became a Chemical Engineer
first of his family ever to attend university. He began working with British American Oil Company, digging ditches in the Calgary refinery, rising through the engineering ranks to management. B.A. Oil became Gulf Oil Canada and he ended his career as President of the Gulf Canada Products Company.
Lorrie felt himself very lucky to have won the love of two wonderful women: Marjorie ORR of Calgary his wife for 52 years until her passing in 1993, and his second wife Dorothy LIVEY who enriched his last 8 years with love and devoted care.
His children, Lynn (John VAN OGTROP), Paula (John WETTLAUFER) and David, with the grandchildren Brian and Stephen WETTLAUFER, Jordan, Kyle and Logan BLASER will miss their dear Papa immensely but are grateful for his generous and constant love, and the fine example he set for them.
Also mourning his loss are Dorothy's children: John and Cheryl LIVEY, Gordon and Jovita LIVEY, Janet DALE and grandchildren Alison (Gareth GIBBONS,) Andrew and Christopher. Lorrie was the last of his family, leaving in-laws in Calgary, Kelowna and Saskatchewan and many nieces and nephews across Canada.
Thanks to the wonderful people who helped us care for Dad and keep him in his own home: Trevor, Rosie, George, Margaret, Peggie, Stacey, Beverley and so many more.
Visiting on Friday, March 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Northlea United Church, 125 Brentcliffe Road. A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 15, 2: 30 p.m. at Northlea with visiting one hour prior to service.
