Lawrence TINNEY

December 13, 1940 – July 6, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lawrence on July 6th, 2011, after battling with health issues for years, which he did with great fortitude.

He was predeceased by his parents, Sam & Lily Tinney, stepsons, Michael & Kevin Beecroft, and several brothers and sisters. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Valerie, son Shaun, granddaughters Kayla, Alanna & Deziree, sister Jeanette Tinney and extended family members.

Lawrence entered the work force at the age of 14 most of that time spent in the logging industry, and upon retirement was working for McMillan-Bloedel Ltd., (now Weyhauser) at the Sproat Lake Division, Port Alberni.

In better times he loved fishing, hunting, coaching Little League Baseball and was a great “Chef”.

We’ll miss your fantastic spaghetti sauce and soups, Poppa! and you too. Cheerio for now, may you rest in peace! Many thanks to the ambulance attendants (great guys), aides, nurses and doctors at N.R.G.H. who took great care of Lawrence during his stay there.

A celebration of life will take place at Nanoose Library Hall on Saturday,

July 23rd, 2011 at 2:00pm.

No flowers thank you, but if you so wish donations to either Moorecroft Regional Park, Nanoose Bay or the Cancer Society would be appreciated.
