CHUBB, Lawrence James

December 3, 1928 — September 24, 2013

Passed away peacefully, with family by his side, on September 24, 2013 in Coquitlam, BC, at the age of 84 years.

Lawrence was born in Limerick, Saskatchewan on December 3, 1928 to Louis and Laura Chubb (nee Trish).

In 1951, Lawrence married Mary Young and they started their life together in Regina, Saskatchewan, staying there for fourteen years and having three children.

His career in the dry cleaning industry lead them to various cities in Canada until 1972 when they moved to Kelowna and purchased Henderson Cleaners, which they successfully operated until 1981. In retirement, Lawrence enjoyed golfing, playing bridge, traveling and spending time with his family. In recent years, Lawrence’s health deteriorated and he spent the last two years of his life at Belvedere Care Centre in Coquitlam, B.C.

Lawrence was predeceased by his wife Mary (nee Young) in 1996 and his second wife, Marjorie Corbett (nee Flack) in 1998; brothers Cliff, Joe, Morley, Roy and Earl and sister Jean Franklin.

He will be lovingly remembered by his sons Ken (Suzanne) and Brian (Angie); daughter Diana (Jeff); ten grandchildren; eight great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.

    Hi, condolences to the Chubb family,working in Henderson’s Cleaners when I was in high School doing clean up after school and Sat. Still remember Lawrence’s grin and little chuckle, always had time to talk to me,and still remember when his green Buick was brand new and he let me use it to do some deliveries personal errands because the service van wasn’t available, he was brave, I was just 16 years old !! Again, fond memories of your Dad. – Roger Hewlett
