You were always such a handsome guy, even when you looked like Jesus in the winter with longer hair. I will miss you, and loved all the times we got to talk, i told your dad how great it was that you stopped over at your mom and dads so much, wonderful memories for him. You were loved by lots of friends and family. Love you, Aunt Dixie

I loved my nephew Loren so much. He will be so missed by so many. He was a true hero for me, willing to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. He was a deep thinker and a person who loved and enjoyed life. There is a big hole in the universe as we know it, but the one beyond will be brighter and funnier and Loren will look out for us all from above. Peace be with him and all who grieve for him.

18 years ago, I was a young teenager that had no skills to offer but wanted to make some money. Loren showed me what hard work was all about and I had an awesome time with him doing it. (At the time, he was the only adult that I knew that was as sarcastic as I was.) :) Loren was an awesome guy that will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathy to all of the family and friends.
-- Steve Peters

To the entire Crownover family I am so sorry for your loss. Words alone cannot express my sympathy. I had the pleasure of working with Loren. He was a very honest man who truly adored his family and close friends. I've heard many stories about kids growing up and many stories regarding his grandkids. Keep this in mind... He loved each and every one of you with all his heart. He was very proud of the accomplishments you had made. Every time he spoke of one of you kids or his grandkids his face had a glow. He may be gone from this earth but he will live forever in your hearts. He will be missed by many. May he rest in peace.
-- Lori DeJonghe
