May I Always

May I always strive to reach a higher plane

But treading softly as I go

So as to cause no hurt or pain to those I know

May I extend a helping hand

To one less fortunate than I

As in this troubled world I stand

Amid the hue and cry

May I always have a cheerful voice

And laughter on my face

May I always have the choice

To live with Love and Grace

May I always have a grateful heart

For blessings that are mine

And may I always do my part

To make each day sublime

Doreen Taylor

Friends and relatives will be invited to meet with the family at a future Celebration of Life.

It is with great sorrow that the family of LESLIE ROY VORNBROCK announce his passing on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Leslie is survived by his wife Marion, three sons, three daughters-in-law, five grandchildren and one great-grandson.

He is predeceased by his sons Leslie Jr. and Keith and brother Harold Vornbrock.

As a journeyman carpenter, Les created a legacy of structures all over the local county. LR Vornbrock and Sons was your assurance the project would be perfect.

Les was also a major volunteer of his time to his community of Milk River. He served on the town council from 1980 – 1986. His coaching and refereeing included hockey, basketball and softball teams of all ages.

He was a driving force in the county music program, even though his contributions were more volunteering than his vocals.

He worked diligently as a fundraiser for the Knights of Columbus. He was very proud to be a part of this organization and eventually became a Fourth Degree Knight.

As the oldest son, he was a legend to me and always will be.

His spirit will be greatly missed.
