One of Loren’s greatest passions was music. He passed his musical talents down to his children as he often sang to them and taught them to play the guitar, starting them out at a very young age. He was often found singing and strumming his guitar in his spare time. He loved sharing his love of music with others, whether it was performing solo or with friends in a band. In his later musical career, he was seen performing quite often at the Country Music Park in Cortland, NY. Loren’s best performances were those he performed with his family at family gatherings. Loren began playing Bluegrass music on stage at Echo Lake Park, Sunday Church Services, and anywhere his father Albert performed. Loren began performing live at the tender age of eight. He always had a song in his heart and was very naturally gifted.
