Lorenz Bayer, born at Fairy Glen, Saskatchewan on June 11, 1942, passed away at Vernon on December 24, 2009. After a long two and half year courageous battle with cancer, it was time for his suffering to end at last.
He was predeceased by his father, George Bayer and his younger sister, Elaine. Lorenz is survived by his wife of 46 years, Tina Bayer; four children Arnold (Michelle), Judy (Don), Donald (Kathy) and Susy (Ken); eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He is also survived by his mother Frances Bayer, four sisters Linda, Carol, Donna and Sharon; brother David; numerous nieces and nephews.
Lorenz will forever be remembered for his honesty, his willingness to help anyone at anytime, his comforting words for those who needed it and his love of music.
The whole family would sincerely like to thank the staff and volunteers at Vernon Hospice House for the care that Lorenz received, which always went above and beyond what was required.
