Millard Lee Lorenzen

June 24, 1953 - June 20, 2019


Millard (Lee) Lorenzen passed away in Powell River, BC on June 20, 2019 at the age of 65.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred Julius (Bud) Lorenzen of Kispiox, BC and Leonine Evalyn (Lee) Lorenzen of Powell River, BC.  He is survived by his daughter, Crystal Dawn Lorenzen of Powell River, and son, Ryan Lee Lorenzen of New Brunswick, and former spouse, JoAnne Lorenzen of New Brunswick. He has two sisters, Jane Brandenburg, Oregon and Carol McCarthy, West Virginia.

The youngest of three children, Lee was born in Anderson, Missouri on June 24, 1953. His father was a farmer, heavy equipment operator, and logger. In the sixties, the family lived near Ashland, Oregon and moved to Bella Coola, BC in 1967.  At age 16 he worked in the woods and later became a diesel mechanic.  For many years, he lived in Terrace, working as shop supervisor for the contractor maintaining the roads in the Kitimat-Stikine district.  He moved to Powell River after his medical retirement in 2007.

He was blessed with common sense and stood up for those who needed help.   He could tell the most believable tall tales imaginable.  He hunted, he gardened, he fished, he smoked, he canned.  He could cook any wild meat on the planet.   And woe betide anyone who messed with his butcher knives.
