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.

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.

We can give a donation to their cause

RIP Loren.  Sad News.
I have never met him, but I have seen him as a very active and knowledgeable member on here...someone to trust and look up to when he offered advice.
Thoughts and prayer to his family.

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.

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)
