He then went on to graduate with a Technical Engineering Degree from Weber State College before working for General Electric Apparatus.

He was a volunteer with Cache Community Food Pantry Backpack Program, St. Thomas Aquinas, and was a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus.
Lorin was a loving and kind father and grandfather who taught his children and grandchildren to respect and love nature and the outdoors.

Despite numerous medical challenges throughout his life, he maintained a resilient spirit through it all. He loved his family dearly and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Lorin’s family is very grateful for the services and support of medical professionals, especially Dr. Sarunas Sliesoraitis, LDS Hospital Bone Marrow Oncology team and staff, including Dr. Konopa and Dr. Mitchell, as well as the nursing staff caring for him in his final days.
