Lorne Fredrick Jon Remple

The family wishes to announce the passing of Lorne, in Selkirk, Mb on November 16, 2021, at the age of 77.  He was predeceased by his wife, Mavis of 47 years whom he cared for at home the last 7 years of her life.

Lorne was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan on March 26, 1944 to John and Ella Remple.  He was the VERY PROUD grandson of Seager Wheeler, Canada’s Wheat King. Seager Wheeler was responsible for the development of the 1st hardy strain of wheat to mature in the prairies and was recognized as a World Wheat Champion 5 times from 1911-1918 for Marquis 10B as well as other grain varieties. The Seager Wheeler farm near Rosthern, Sask is now a National Historic Site opened to visitors in 1996.  Lorne loved to visit the farm and would love to talk about his grandfather and would be honored if any of his friends and family were to visit it.

Throughout his life, Lorne held varied jobs and started working for Manitoba Housing in the early 1980’s where he remained until retiring.

Lorne and Mavis loved to hit the road with their camper and tried out a few places until discovering the Brokenhead River campground in Beausejour.  They fell so in love with Beausejour that they decided to buy a house there which they remained in until 2017 when Mavis passed away. Lorne then moved to the Armstrong Manor in Beausejour where he made many friends- somewhat of a social butterfly!

Lorne is survived by his children: Brian Allen, Elaine Sheppit (Greg), Rick Allen and Darren Remple.  He is also survived by his grandchildren, Michael Sheppit, Lisa Sheppit Kocis (Dean), Morgan Remple Brennan (Darren), Carlee Allen Perillo (Joel) and Nikki Allen as well as 6 great-grandchildren Parker, Kennedy and Marley Kocis and Wyatt, Lex and Jayce Brennan.

He is also survived by his sister, Bonnie Chalifoux, his nieces and nephews, Crystal, Tracey, Troy and Drew as well as many great-nieces and nephews all from Alberta.  His Alberta family meant the world to him and we are so glad that he was able to take a few trips out west before his passing.

Lorne’s wishes were to be cremated with no service and we will honor those wishes. 

He’s back with Mavis, Rest in Peace Lorne.
