Loren, or Dale as he was known by most, was a US Army Veteran that was stationed at the Nike Missile Site in Naperville, IL where he met the love of his life, Eleanor. They were married 49 years until her death in 2010. Dale raced stock cars, loved to hunt, fish and did woodworking out of his garage. He loved to tinker. He loved all of that, but most of all, he loved his beloved Eleanor, whom he missed terribly. He’s now back together with her and at peace. RIP dad.
