  2. My thoughts and condolences to all of the Chuipka Family. Mr. Chuipka was a tremendous friend to our family and to anyone who attended All Peoples United Church in the past decades. It has been some time since I have been back to Sudbury but I still have such wonderful memories of Lorne (but it will always be Mr. Chuipka to me). Thank you for the opportunity to relive those times. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  4. To Marlene,

    My second mother for my early childhood….I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss I have so many fond memories of All of us spending time together. Whether it was at the camp, during my first trip to the Magic Kingdom in 1976., or Lorne trying and trying to turn me into a baseball player with little luck, but never giving up.
    To Rick(Ricky) David, Perry and Brian who like your mother, were my (pretend) brothers and Susan the sister I never had. I can tell you ” I know how you feel”,and “That things will be better in time”. However, right now what I want to say is that “I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS” and that my heart is heavy with grief along with you. I will hold the memories I have of us all together close to my heart .and hope you can find peace during this time. Although I cannot get to Sudbury please believe I am with you in spirit.

    In Deepest Sympathy,

    Steve Dever

  5. Marlene & Family:: So sorry and shocked to hear of Lorne’s sudden passing. Lorne was expert in performing his retiree duties for us as sick and visiting chairman, as well as being very active in all retirees’ association activities. I will always remember Lorne’s very detailed accounts at our meetings of his sick and visiting visits on our behalf. He will be sadly missed by all who had the opportunity to know him. Rest in peace, Lorne. Carole and Gord Greenough.

  13. Dear Marlene and Family–My love and condolences to you
    I put my arms all around you as we all grieve the loss of our Lorne.
    Lorne, Ernie and Vivian were my cousins and we grew up together. I can still lovingly picture them as we were small kids and then teenagers. I remember the many blueberry-picking picnics that we shared when the three families got together–they were great days! We had fun together and now another part of our family will be sadly missed. The last time we saw each other we even talked about having a family reunion to talk about our past glorious days.
    Love never dies and Lorne will forever be in my heart–he was my cousin..

  18. It was with great sadness of hearing of Lorne’s passing. He was one of the many constables who welcomed females to the department back in the 70’s. It was a joy to work with him and then to see him at the annual retirees golf tournaments. My wish for you and your family at this time is that the wonderful memories will help you through this time of loss. Sincere condolences.

  19. My deepest sympathies to the Chuipka family. I had the pleasure of working with Lorne and he was a friend of my parents (Jim and Elsie Beare) . Lorne was always there to lend a helping hand, always with a smile. When my father passed Lorne spoke eloquently at his Memorial Service and it meant a lot to us. Go rest high on that mountain, your work on Earth is done…God Speed Lorne.
