Lawrence Herring

Today, I, Lynda Jones, June 10, 2015 said goodbye

to my best friend and husband. He was my rock

through lows and highs. He kept me focused on

the good and helped me though the bads. But

most of all he was my soulmate. He cherished his

extended family, Daughter – Deborah (Mike) Zimmerman,

pride and joy Granddaughters- Danielle

(Graham) Moorman and Candice Zimmerman. He

will be missed by his dog Rusty who keeps waiting

for him to come home and sleeps in his bed just

in case. Large contingency of family members and

friends which he held dear, didn’t have the opportunity

to tell everyone how much he cared but know

that he did. His Cumberland Dialysis patients and

nurses had been a large part of his life for the past

11 years, of course there was special ones who he

let into his heart and I am sure they know who he

choose as the special group. He was grateful for

the Handidart service and yes their special drivers.

He served with the Canadian Armed Forces enlisting

as a Boy Soldier July 9, 1953, often referred to

his Military family with fond memories and experiences.

He was their basketball legend and held

many individually accomplished sports records

which he retained for years. Civilian life his trades

were Electrican, Gas & Oil and successfully completing

many of his wifes Bucket to do Lists.

THE ENGINEER’S PRAYER “Almighty God, we pray

thee to bless the Canadian Military Engineers. May

our bridges always stand, and our charges never

fail, our men be ever loyal, and our officers worthy

of their loyalty. May we work diligently in all our purposes

and be skilled in our trades; good soldiers for

Queen and Country everywhere. Amen.”
