  1. I’ve lost another dear freind our time of friendship started at. 104 Wellington. And then to a few other business opportunities .. all within Chatam … we had many conversations about visiting our home in. Italy it seemed to be something he has always wanted to do. … my introduction to. Opie all started with conversations of a chef school he wanted to attend in Florence Italy But then another son showed up and business improved 10 fold. And the. Italian Culinary dreams were put on hold ….. a dedicated father a hard worker and his ambition grew with the success of. 104. And then. Opus.

  9. Dorrie and family we are thinking of you all during this difficult time. May love and support of your family there bring you peace . Our deepest condolences

  10. I’m so shocked and saddened to hear my friend Opie had passed away. Since living in England it’s been hard to keep in touch. But every now and then I would get a cheeky email simply saying, how’s it going looser? I worked for Opie at 104 after graduating from nursing school. He always would say, forget about nursing, you will make more money working for me! Which was true. I then opened up Opus with him. But then finally I got a nursing job in England. This is when he started to nickname me looser. I learned so much about life from Opie, good and bad. He catered my wedding. He played a major role in my 20’s. Now in my 40’s I feel it’s much too soon to say good bye to this larger than life man whom I really did like a lot. Bye for now Opie, I will never forget your sincerity and friendship. Love Looser (Jenn Passien-Hudson) xx

  14. To the Entire Lozon Family, Opie has been in Our Lives (sometimes distantly, but there) since My Brother, Rob first brought Him to Our Home…. They were about 8 or 9 yrs old. Opie was like another Big Brother to Me…. I could get Opie SOOOO MAD, LOL…. (by calling Him Floyd) that He would chase Me & jump over hedges to catch Me…. But then again, Opie Always had My back, back in the Parkview days & beyond…. We were THE BEST Duet singing an old ‘Joe Jackson’ song…. Thru Opie, I met His Sisters, but Mostly chummed with Dawn-Anne…. To others, Opie might have seemed hard to get to know, but He Truly had a Heart of Gold & would stand by U or with U or for U if U needed Him…. Us Boulton’s Love U Lozon’s & We will b keeping U in Our Hearts….
    HUGS to All of U…. R.I.P. Opie XO
