LOUIS DWAYNE LORGE

Louis Dwayne Lorge, aged 76 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on Monday, June 11th, 2018.  Lou was born in Shaunavon, SK on January 1st, 1942 and grew up on the farm east of Shaunavon.  He moved to Moose Jaw and where he spent his life with his wife, Janice.  They had just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on June 5th, 2018.  Along with Janice, Lou is survived by his sons: Curt (Jackie) and their daughters Gabrielle and Rachel; Brent (Darcy) and Brent's son Madison (Kristina), their daughter Elliot, Brent's son Zachary (Elly), and Brent's son Jeffrey; Lou's two brothers, Jack (Rolande) and Dave (Moe); brothers and sisters-in-law: Bev (Bill) Itcush, Keith (Joey) Berglind, Wenda McArthur, and Debra Berglind; as well as many nephews and nieces.  He was predeceased by his parents, Ed and Alma Lorge; and in-laws, Lloyd and Florence Berglind.  Lou worked as a welder at Kalium Chemicals for 27 years, as well as shut downs around the province, Sask Highways, and helped to build the pool at Temple Gardens.  His true passion was for building cars, which started with a special custom Dune Buggy, a gorgeous red convertible 1940 Chev, and an incredible blue 1940 ford truck.  He was always fixing or building vehicles and was known for his tremendous fabrication skills and attention to detail.  Lou was a capable plumber, electrician and carpenter as well.  He took great pride in the upkeep of his home.  Always ready to lend a hand and pass along his knowledge, Lou was the go to guy when car guys in Moose Jaw needed a solution to any problems.  He completed his last project this past fall, rebuilding a vintage 1939 Ford 9N tractor.  It was a similar tractor to the first one the Lorge's ever had on their farm.  Lou passed along his creative skills to his sons, Curt operates a home renovation business and Brent owns Brentz Garage, an old school mechanic shop.  While he did not wish for a service, as a tribute to Lou and his amazing work, there will be an impromptu Show and Shine, a little gathering of friends (and cars!) at Brentz Garage, 1042 Athabasca St E, Moose Jaw, SK on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Everyone is welcome!  In lieu of flowers, donations in Lou’s name may be made to the Burrowing Owl Center, 250 Thatcher Dr. E., Moose Jaw, SK S6J 1L7.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
