He has turned out the lights, turned on the alarm and locked the door of the shop for the last time. Loran passed away peacefully early Easter morning. He leaves his beloved wife, Carol, heartbroken after 54 years together.

Surviving Loran are his wife Carol, “son” Rob (Anna), brothers Fred, Wayne (Barbara) and sister Vicki Sanders, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

He has now joined his parents, Stan and Margaret Wright, sister Jo-Ann Gurney and Carol’s parents, Ernie and Dorothy Bleathman.

Loran was born in Royal Jubilee Hospital, grew up on Cavendish Avenue in Oak Bay, and attended Willows Elementary, Oak Bay Junior, Lansdowne Junior and Victoria High schools.

Loran’s life’s work was with the family business, Stan V. Wright Ltd., which he co-owned with his brothers Fred and Wayne. Loran took great pride in the service and maintenance of the equipment and delivery fleet, particularly the early vehicles.

Loran had triple bypass heart surgery in 2002, giving us many more years together. If you wish, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. https://www.heartandstroke.ca/how-you-can-help/volunteer/join-us/british-columbia
