May 25, 1976 - August 2, 2021

It is with deep and profound sadness, we announce the passing of Lorne, son of Mel and Grace Darroch of Beausejour. Lorne passed away very peacefully at home with his parents at his side and his sister and family on Zoom, Monday afternoon, August 2, 2021.
Left to grieve Lorne's passing are his parents, Mel and Grace (Drewlo); his sister Lee-Ann; brother-in-law Fabio dos Santos; his two beautiful, loving nieces, Amelia and Gianna; his aunty Lorraine Drewlo; cousins, Darren (Vikki), Lorry (Rod) and aunty Margaret Drewlo.
He was predeceased by some very special people in his life, Ed and Gladys Darroch (Melita, MB), Len and Helen Drewlo and his uncles, Don and Bob Drewlo.
Lorne was born May 25, 1976 in Beausejour, where he spent his entire life. His best times were spent hanging out with his gramma and grandpa Drewlo, who lived next door and going out for Lee's Chinese food with his uncle Don and aunty Margaret.
Lorne really got a spark in his life with the arrival of his precious nieces, Amelia (12) who captured his heart immediately and Gianna (nine) who always could make him smile and laugh.
Lorne was a very caring person, who made us smile often, as he taught us what was really important in life. He was a very avid music lover, going to numerous music concerts in Winnipeg, Branson, MO and Minot, ND. A huge sports fan and lover of Free Cell and numerous other computer games.
Lorne made many friends over the years at Association for Community Living, where he attended four days a week.
