His cremation took place at “The Witness Crematory” located inside of Michigan Memorial Funeral Home.
Loren was a great friend. He helped many people in very many ways. Not that he would ever admit it! Many were helped that he never even knew about. Loren was that kind of guy. I would say that he was always a gentleman but all that knew him know that isn't true. Not that he couldn't be a gentleman when he needed to be. He was almost always a surprise. You would never know what would come out of his mouth! The thing that you could count on was that he would never say anything to hurt someone. I will sure miss my GOOD friend and confidante. He will live on in my heart and mind. Tim Marschner
My heart is broken and if filled with sadness that you are not here. It's uncomprehensible that I won't see you or hear your raspy-rugged voice again. The kind of sadness you feel right through your bones! You were so generous,loving,honest,non-judgemenmtal and told it like it was , didn't sugarcoat thimgs kind of a guy! You are going to be missed by so many Loren, but most of all,I am finding it hard to accpet that you're gone, but I still have you in my heart and the many memories that I will cherish! I already miss our conversations and kidding around and you singing that song to me. You are pain free my friend and healthy ( probably with your black hair back) . I love you and miss you so much , knowing you are no longer suffering makes it a teeny tiny bit better. I love you Loren!!! :( Vicki Nicolas
