I received a call today from Loren wife sadly she informed me Loren had passed this morning. If you are his friend on facebook please DO NOT post about this yet because I am not sure that all his family knows yet, I was informed his sister knows but not sure if the nephews and nieces know.

I guess all the posts about his medical issue were more serious than he let on.

Loren was the first member that Welcomed me to the site way back on 2005 and helped out allot employee discount thread.


Please keep Loren in your thoughts and prayers. I'll post more details as I find them out.

R.I.P. Loren I'll miss you.

Sorry to hear this news... he had a tough run over the last few months and was so heartbroken about the loss of his trusty AVY. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to help.  :cry:

Yeah when I saw his name in the caller ID I thought he wanted to chat like usual when I heard her voice I knew it was bad news.

This is just so sad. He will be missed by my family. He wanted to come up to Alaska someday and I enjoyed day dreaming about it.

He was a good guy and his posts will be missed.

He did a lot for the club helping to arrange the Black diamond books for members and just chime in when humor was needed.


Gods speed.

Loren was a good guy and helped many members with supplier discount certificates and with his humor. I just read through some of his last posts and saw that he had been having health issues and had been hospitalized over Christmas, take the warning signs seriously my friends!

Here are Lorens last posts...........http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php?action=profile;u=11326;sa=showPosts;start=0

:cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry: he will be missed, never had the pleasure of meeting him. But the little I talked to him on the forum he seemed very friendly and knowledgeable. He was our secret santa last year and I tried to learn as much as I could to send a personal gift. I have read through a lot of his posts and he wanted nothing but to help people.

I'm thinking about something I can give Wendy from the club. Anyone have any ideas, she is not into AVs.

She and Loren love pets and adopted plenty of them.
