He had owned his own gas and fuel business in Granton and later owned and operated his own semi. He then became employed in the maintenance department at St. Joseph’s Hospital for over 30 years, until his retirement.
Loren loved to tinker and took great pride in fixing things no matter how big or small.

He is also survived by a sister, Kathryn Reigel, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and numerous nieces and nephews and a special nephew and caretaker, Patrick. He is further survived by Poppy’s girls and grandchildren by heart.
He was predeceased by his parents and 2 brothers, Denis and Roman Virnig.
We wish to thank all the special angels that helped us through Loren’s care, including the oncology staff, palliative care, hospice, home hospice staff and neighbors and friends.
