In 1931, he married Anne Michalenko. He retired from farming in 1943 and moved to Borden, where he found work in a garage. He was a member of the United Farmers of Canada, a director for the Borden Co-op Association and secretary for the Concordia School. Lazorko also served on the town council for Borden.
