Loren was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he served a mission in the Geneva, Switzerland mission from 1983 to 1985, and spent both years in France. He was so proud that his son Adam was also called to serve a mission in France and serve in the same areas. He graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1991. He graduated with is Master's Degree from Grantham University 2013. He made his college years fun by playing the drums for the Pep Band at the University of Utah basketball games.

Loren and Heidi have 5 children, Spencer (1990), Chelsea (1991), Adam (1994) Todd (1997) and Clara (2000). Spencer passed away shortly after birth. Loren served in the National Guard for a total of 32 (1983- 2015) years. He served with the 40th Infantry Division Band and 23rd Army Band as a percussionist. His favorite part of being in the Army band was playing the drums for the Unit's rock band, "Article 15". He had a great connection with his band, and he loved them. In 2010, his daughter, Chelsea, joined the 23rd Army Band and he loved playing in the band with her. Loren will be most remembered by his smile and his love to laugh. He always greeted everyone with a smile and easily made connections and friends. He loved to be with his friends and family and laugh with them. He had a great sense of humor. He loved to play games any game, but especially Dominion. He loved to camp, travel, and most of all spend time with his family. His family was a high priority in his life, and his grandchildren lit up his day when he would hear them call) him "Pabo". He will also be remembered by his musical) abilities. He was very talented at the piano as well as the drums. He had a few years of piano lessons as a child, but in his adult life he taught himself to play the Hymns. He played so beautifully, nobody realized he only was reading the melody and making up the bottom hand. He had a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a great love for our Savior. He often bore his testimony both orally and through playing the Hymns. His music will be missed as it filled our home with the Spirit.
