    Sending my Sincere Condolences on the passing of Loren. I remember him from many, many years ago…. when he worked for my Dad’s, Irv Kirk’s, Plumbing Business. I am so sorry for your loss.

    My first memory is a man giving me a plastic trumpet in my crib. I am pretty sure that man was Mr. McKenney. I spent the first 4 years of my life living next door to the McKenneys, and still have many great memories of the old cars that Loren had. Rest well Loren. To the rest of the family, please accept Karen and my condolences. We are sorry for your loss.

    Loren will be missed by all his friends and the members of Niagara Antique Power. He was a member for many years and participated in our Heritage Display with a great display of pumps and was glad to share his knowledge with all the visitors to our annual show. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Evelyn and his family and friends.
