He also lived in Barcelona, and Madrid, Spain, before returning to primarily live and attend school in San Antonio, Texas. He lived and worked in Cincinnati, Ohio, for some years. He last settled in Seguin, Guadalupe County, Texas.
Loren often disclosed his sweet spirit and generous lion heart through his many kind acts of service to others. He cherished his family, near and far. Loren was known for being a hard worker with a cheerful work ethic, and always keen to try different occupations and adventures. He never hesitated in sharing what he had with those in need, regardless of his own. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and dirt bikes, while being meticulous and safety conscious about wearing his helmet.
The family will hold him in private remembrance in lieu of funeral services. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Palmer Mortuary, 1116 N Austin St, Seguin, TX 78155, and to the many friends and family who have extended their condolences and love.
