Loren especially loved gatherings and fish fries with friends and family. He enjoyed fishing and any outdoor time spent whether it was working or playing. He never missed an opportunity to watch a beautiful sunset and listen for the sounds of whippoorwills in the spring. His pride for his job and the work he accomplished led to memorable stories he was fond of telling. He never missed an opportunity to be with his siblings and family. He will be missed by everyone that ever had the opportunity to be around him, he never met a stranger and had the patience of a true saint. Heaven truly gained an angel that will be sorely missed by all.
