Lorne C. F. Bohlman, BASc’51

September 9, 1929 – May 20, 2012. It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of our dear Lorne, a man of exceptional brilliance and love of family. He is survived by his wife, Shirley, sister, Ruth, sons, Mark and Byron, daughter-in-law, Katheryn, and his cherished grandchildren, Philip, Isabel, and Sarah.

Lorne was co-founder of the Vancouver engineering firm Bush, Bohlman & Partners and was known to many as a highly creative designer and professional mentor. He leaves a legacy of award-winning architectural structures across Canada that includes bridges and university, healthcare, exposition, and residential buildings.

He enjoyed a good (and bad) game of golf, curling, travel, the camaraderie of friends,
the Belvedere group of neighbours, and his community of business associates. We shall
miss him dearly.

The family extends special thanks to Ronel for his kind assistance to Lorne in recent years. A private remembrance was held in West Vancouver in June. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to UBC for the Lorne Bohlman Memorial Fund in support of engineering student bursaries.
