I have known Loren since he was a baby and a big boy he was. Always had a heart of gold and enjoyed listening to him at our annual Labor Day picnics. He even stopped to see us several years ago. Always had trouble standing and would kneel and lean on something while visiting. Sympathy to Randy, Russell, Pam & Nyle. May Loren rest in peace. Sincerely Betty Ann

I remembered Loren in high school and my husband was his classmate. Kevin talked about when their class ordered rings, Loren could drop a quarter through his! I remember all the 4H member tours and enjoying fresh milk and doughnuts at the Paper farm. Rest in peace , Loren. My sympathy to his family.
