We lost a Michigan member today Flint4X4
« on: January 6, 2017, 18:54:15 PM »

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.  :'(

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.

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!

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.

Sorry to hear that he passed.

As I myself reach retirement at a "ripe old age" of 50 and finishing up my Degree, hearing about a member passing sort of kicks me in the butt to enjoy life as much as possible because you never know.

He will certainly be missed. Was very welcoming and don't know that I ever heard an unkind word from him.

I sit here and wonder if his health issues are related to the accident and how young was he when he passed.

Very sad to not retire until just before you pass...

I remember meeting Loren at a 4th of July gtg in NW Indiana over 10 years ago.  He was giving out the chevy bow tie patches that were on the North Face edition Avalanche seats.

Hearing that members passed away is hard. Always seemed like a nice guy.

Be well.

Thanks everyone for signing the guest book, I think Wendy will appreciate it.
I think I will gather some pictures of him from the site and have them printed on a banner or poster to give to Wendy. If anyone wants to send a card PM me and I'll give you the address.

So sad, I was up in his neighborhood just a couple weeks ago and was thinking about when Loren, Byron, and myself went to the car show in Flint. What a great guy, loved this club and loved his truck.

Byron - life is good! Looking back at old posts - almost 10 years ago attended my first gtg (if you can call it that) - Flint was going to meet me at the BWW in Fenton to help with ambers. Shop and Shels decided they would make the trip up. Flint ended up not making it, and I don't remember if we even got the ambers installed - but got to meet those guys for the first time. First in a long line of good times.
Anyways, sure do miss my Avs, been driving a string of Ford Focus hatchbacks for the last 9 years (company has bad taste).
I hope things are well with you, and I hope the working girl is still treating you well (miss seeing it around Auburn Hills)

I did contact Wendy the other day, she would like to thank everyone for the kind words.

She is off for some timeout for a few more weeks to get away, then moving back to her home town.

Sold my Av a few vehicles ago but still lurk on the website now and then.  I was shocked to see this post.

This is really sad news, too young to go so soon.  I spent a little time with him at the Av GTGs in Niagara a numbers of years ago.  Very nice, friendly guy and very active on the site.  I'm very sorry for your loss Wendy.  RIP Loren, he should be remembered for his service and the many contributions to the website.

I have only now seen this thread.

Flint4x4 had been a member of CAFCNA since early in 2004. I always enjoyed Flint's presence on the site and always thought that one day I would get to meet him at one of the gtg's.
