Lorber portrait

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our husband and father Frank Lorber on Monday, September 16th, 2019 at the age of 79 years following a courageous battle with cancer.

Frank was born in St. Ann’s Parish (Lenart), Slovenia to Franz & Stanislava Lorber and then immigrated to Canada in 1960.

He worked for Husky Injection Molding Systems as a Tool & Die Maker before leaving in 1975 to start his own business as a General Contractor.

Frank had a talent for working with his hands and loved carpentry; his favourite toy was his “BobCat” which he could often be seen driving, digging and moving dirt for his latest project or clearing a neighbour’s driveway after a snowfall. Planting a garden every year was a must, always too big, but many family & friends would receive their share of the harvest. In younger years this also resulted in many hours of canning and preserving for his wife in the kitchen.

In earlier days Frank loved to entertain with his wife Mary and was happiest with a house full of people, lots of food and his homemade wine and “polka” music playing in the background.

Frank is survived by his wife Mary of 53 years, daughter Margaret Ostrun and son-in-law Igor, daughter Maria Spinelli and son- in- law Durante, son Frank Lorber Jr and daughter-in-law Maria; also survived by grandchildren Domenica, Ilaria ,Gianluca, and Lisandro, as well as, his sisters Slavica and Mimica and brothers Victor and Joe and many extended family members in Canada, the United States & Slovenia.

A special Thank You to Dr. Reingold and the staff of William Osler Health Centre and especially nurse Joan for her care and support at home.

The family will receive their friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Friday afternoon 2 – 4 and evening 6 – 8 p.m.  Funeral Mass will be held in St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church, 11873 Gore Road, Brampton (Wildfield) on Saturday, September 21st at 9:30 a.m. (leaving the funeral home at 9 a.m.).  Entombment Queen of Heaven Cemetery, 7300 Hwy 27, Woodbridge.  Condolences for the family may be offered at www.EganFuneralHome.com

Dearest Mary and Family,

Very sad news and so very hard to say Goodbye
I will treasure all the wonderful memories Frank left behind. So many pictures of him and my dad when they where young and first came to Canada are still in my photo box. Some at dad’s old schoolhouse. He and my father were good friends from a long long time ago from far old Slovenia.. I know they both loved to spend time and they used to talk eat and laugh for hours. I will always remember his warm smile. Wonderful man! My sincerest heartfelt condolences to Mary and Family. Prayers for all who will miss him.
With love Diana and Shawn

»Zapel je zvon,
tebi v slovo …
Poln bolečin,
ostaja spomin,
ostaja praznina,
molk in tišina …«

Kljub razdalji, ki nas je ločevala, boš Francko, za vedno boš ostal v naših spominih.

Tebi Marija ter otrokom z družinami, pa izrekamo iskreno sožalje.

Brat Viktor z družino iz Slovenije

Stric Francko…
Odšel si brez slovesa, a obudil spomine in prepričanje, da se nekoč srečamo…
Vsem žalujočim izrekam sožalje!

Condolence from SSESTRA SLAVICA IN VLADKA Z DRUŽINO on September 21st, 2019 3:40 am

Tiho teče našega življenja reka,
tiho teče solza lepega spomina,
umre srce, a ostane bolečina
v srcu dragega in večnega spomina.
Mnogo si ustvaril,
zdaj vsak korak,
spomin je nate
in hvaležna misel,
luč je, ki ne ugasne …..

Condolence from Anita on September 21st, 2019 5:26 am

Iskreno sozalje druzini in prijateljem!

Z lepimi spomini se poslavljava od strica Frenka.
Iskreno sožalje vsej družini.

Celestrina, 20.9. 2019

Pojdem, ko pride moj maj,

pojdem na rožne poljane,

kjer najdem vse svoje

zbrane od včeraj

in kdo ve od kdaj.

Pojdem v kraj vseh krajev,

pojdem v maj

vseh majev …

Ne kličite me nazaj!

(T. Kuntner)
