Tanguay Family Relief Fund
Lorrie Tanguay has been a well-loved fixture of the community of Qualicum Beach for over 35 years. Tragically, his family is bedside at home with him caring for him in the last painful days of bladder cancer. At some point during the past week Lorrie's business and livelihood, Cordero Lodge, a remote fishing lodge near East Thurlow Island, was ransacked and thieves made off with property and perpetrated damages valuing approximately thirty thousand dollars.
Friends of the family had recently prepared the lodge for the distress sale so Lorrie could leave knowing his wife of 51 years would be cared for in her remaining days. Without the ability to operate or sell the lodge she is in great jeopardy of losing both their business and their longtime family home.
Any money donated will go toward materials, repairs, replacement of goods and equipment stolen and labour to restore the lodge to saleable condition. We are also looking for trades people who are willing to donate their time to join a work party to help rescue the lodge so the family can remain bedside.
Thank you for your love and prayers and for taking the time to donate to help Lorrie and his family through this incredibly hard time.
If anyone has any information please contact RCMP or Crimestoppers.
The family requests, in lieu of flowers, that a donation be made to the charity of your choice in his honour.
I'm curious is this to help this family because of the illness or because the fishing lodge was robbed? Wouldn't they have insurance to cover the loss of property and damage for the business?
