It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Father, James Lobban, at the Third Crossing Manor.
Dad was born to his parents, Fred and Laurena Lobban in the Gladstone area. He served in the Canadian Armed Forces for three and a half years as an airframe mechanic during the Second World War. Upon discharge he returned to the family farm in the Golden Stream District and married Mabel Erven in 1947.
Dad is survived by two sons Gary and Kelvin and a sister, Pearl Lobban, of Summerland, BC. , and several cousins.
Dad lived in the Gladstone area most of his life and worked at several jobs including the Gladstone Auction Mart, Ambulance Assistant, Personal Care Home Nurses Aide and MacLeods Hardware Store.
Dad was a long time member of the Canadian Legion 110, served as a Padre for forty years and sered on the Board for the Gladstone United Church. He was always willing to perform volunteer services including driving residents to appointments.
Dad was one of integrity, honesty, and thoughtfulness. He always put others before himself.
His legacy is one of service to his country and his community of friends and neighbors and making people happy ahead of himself.
The family would like to thank the Southern Health Unit and Home Care, Third Crossing Manor, Gladstone Legion 110, and the Gladstone United Church for their services in time of need.
Donations can be made to the Third Crossing Manor in Gladstone.
