Capt (Retired) Lorne Robert McCartney (CELE 42B) (1947 – 2016)

It is with regret that we inform you of the passing of Lorne Robert McCartney at the Queensway Carleton Hospital on 28 January 2016 after a hard-fought battle with lung disease. He was 68 years old.

Lorne was the beloved husband of Norma, sadly missed father of Jason, Mark (Kelly), and Carla, and proud Ottawa Grandpa of Brooke and Jack. He is survived by his two sisters, Lee Ann (George) and Nancy (Wayne).

Lorne was a larger than life character, innovative thinker, inventor and passionate, tireless advocate for the right of our veterans. According to Lorne’s wishes, a service with immediate family members only has been held. Very special thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Queensway Carleton Hospital for their excellent care during his final journey. If you wish to make a donation in Lorne’s name, please consider the Lung Association:
