Lorne Paul Wedlund passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Hospice at the age of 73 on October 6, 2021 after a brave battle with cancer.
Lorne was born in Lacombe, Alberta on June 1, 1948 and was raised on a farm in the Crestomere community. Lorne married the love of his life, Ann Pedersen in 1970 and together they had four children, Laura, Darren, Krista and Angela. His true passion was farming and he worked in various jobs throughout his farming career which took him from Victoria, BC to Fort McMurray, AB. He also spent many years in the construction industry throughout central AB. After moving off the farm he started hauling feed, which led him to start his own business, LA Quality Trucking.
