November 25, 1940 – October 10, 2012
Lorne Earle passed away peacefully at his home in Calgary, on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at the age of 71, in the company of his adoring and loving wife, Elaine. Lorne was a dazzling, bright, and charming man who gave so much love to the world around him.
Lorne was born in Lacombe and raised in Vancouver. From Simon Fraser University, he received a double honours degree in Political Science and Sociology (1972) and an MBA (1976). In 1972, he married the love of his life, Elaine, his “Chuckie.” During his varied career, Lorne worked as an intelligence officer with counterespionage operations in the RCMP, Director of Corporate Security for Petro Canada, President of American Protective Services, and President of Earle Security International. He was the first Canadian President of the International Security Management Association.
Lorne is survived by his wife Elaine; daughters Jennifer and Suzanne; sons-in-law Ivan and James; and his three grandchildren, Kieran, Clio and Zoe. He also held a special place in his heart for Peyton. Lorne will be remembered for his way with words, his remarkable stories, his infectious laugh, and his great bear hugs. We will miss him tremendously and will love him always.
