Obituary of Joseph Lorenz
On Monday, May 16, 2022, our dad passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family. He was just shy of his 95th birthday. He was predeceased by his first wife Jeanette in 1993. Joe is survived by his wife Dolores; daughters Linda (Kevin) Kuntz of Regina, Karen (Doug) Haughey of Calgary and Sherry (Jim) Kropp of Calgary; grandchildren Shaela (AJ) and Bryden (Amanda) of Regina, Jason (Lyndsay), Tyler (Denise) and Craig (Sarah) of Calgary, and Taylor and Jordan of Calgary; his precious great-grandchildren; brothers Harold (Rose) and Raymond (Sharon); as well as Dolores’s family and numerous nieces and nephews.
Dad was born in Germany, came to Canada as a young child and spent most of his life in Regina. He had a passion for helping people whether it was at Joe’s Grocery and Confectionery, selling cars or at U-DO-IT Plumbing and Heating. Joe and Jeanette enjoyed eleven years as owners of Joe’s Confectionery in the Rosemont neighbourhood. After leaving the grocery business, Joe, with his helping nature, made him well sought out by the home handyman at U-DO-IT. In later years Joe and Dolores spent much time travelling as well as dancing at the Regina Senior Citizens’ Centre. He enjoyed his time watching his grandchildren grow and most recently his great-grandchildren. Dad was a kind-hearted person and will be in our hearts and minds forever.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at the Autumn Care Home for their care and compassion in the last few months.
Funeral Service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, 4825 Dewdney Ave, Regina, SK on Saturday July, 2, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. Private interment to follow.
