Scott GregoryTo the Pelechaty Families: Your Dad and your Mother were both wonderful people who I have known and respected for 40 years. I recall many times shared with your Dad when I worked with him at Coca-Cola. We shared numerous trips to Toronto plays with Coca-Cola and your parents were wonderful people to talk to and to visit with. I don't think I ever saw your Dad get riled up in the workplace. If something did not go as planned he always had a positive solution. I recall Lorne having a kind word and a smile for everyone he met when I worked with him. I learned a lot from your Dad In dealing with customers the right way. Lessons I still use today. My hope is that you all remember the wonderful memories of your Father And keep those in your heart going forward. Scott and Paula Gregory

Warren MooreTo my cousins Vicki, Susie, Alan and Joey and your families, condolences from Dina and I on behalf of the passing of Uncle Lorne. As a kid, I remember his love for all things Coca Cola, never thinking to utter the "P" word in front of him. He was a man with an incredible sense of humor, capable of leaving those around him in stitches when he spoke. What a great loss to the Pelechaty family and all those lucky enough to have known Uncle Lorne.
Ruth and George MooreDear Vicki, Susie, Alan and Joey - I feel your loss and pain on the passing of your father. He definitely was "one in a million - and "Terrific". Take comfort in knowing that you have been given and left with the best legacy any family would envy: the best of parents and an extremely close bond between the 4 of you - which will last a life-time and will be adopted by each of your siblings. Congratulations to the 4 of you. All our love. Aunt Ruth & Uncle George.
John maxner To the Pelechaty Families. I knew your Dad very well, I worked with "Lorne" for 34 yr's, at Coca- Cola, if you needed a favour he would give you his silly grin shake his head and it was taken care of as soon as possible. My wife and I had the pleasure of socializing with your Dad and Mom at the Coke Red Barrel Parties, many a good laugh was shared. We are very sorry for your loss. John & Rochelle Maxner
Dan and LouiseDear Sue, Vicky, Al, Joe and family Our thoughts are with you all at this time. Lots of love from your friends in Ottawa. XXOO Louise and Dan
Steve MooreWhat a wonderful and funny man my Uncle Lorne was. Such a unique voice, laugh, and sense of humour, always a very likeable man and Uncle. My condolences to my cousins Vicki, Susie, Joey, Allen, and their families. Wonderful, lasting memories to replace the hard present loss of their father is what I wish for each of them.
Petra Taylor Dear Vicki, Susie, Alan and Joe, Our family is so very sorry for your loss. Growing up, your Mom and Dad were always such wonderful neighbours to us. I remember that Halloween on Briarhill Court used to be overflowing with kids because Lorne had cans of Coke to give out and how much all of us enjoyed making tunnels in that big snow mountain on the court, no doubt being carefully watched from the living rooms of each of our homes. Lorne often popped by in recent years to be sure Dad hadn't forgotten about garbage day and it was Alice and Lorne who would be sure the mail was taken care of whenever our folks were away. I know how proud Lorne was of each of you, your partners and your kids. I wish you the comfort of happy memories and send you my deepest sympathy. Petra
