Obituary for Kenneth C. Lorenz

Kenneth C. Lorenz, age 82, a resident of Naperville, IL, passed away peacefully on January 23, 2018 surrounded by the love of his family. He was born on October 28, 1935 in Chicago, IL.

Ken is survived by his devoted wife of 42 years, Marcia; his loving children, Kevin (Maggie) Lorenz; Kenneth (Nicole) Lorenz, Cynthia (Karl) Sherve and Debra Lorenz; his cherished grandchildren, Logan Lorenz, Samantha Lorenz, Jessica Langevin and Danielle Langevin, Kyle Balog and Michael Balog; his great-granddaughter, Avery Balog; his dear siblings, Elizabeth (Paul) Dubeau and Donald (Debbie) Lorenz; as well as his many nieces and nephews and a host of great friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Stanley and Pearl Lorenz and his brother, George Lorenz, in infancy.

Ken proudly built Lisle Auto Body Shop and has operated this successful business since 1960. He was a longtime avid pilot who enjoyed flying with his friends and frequently traveling to Colorado and throughout the country. He loved the freedom that flight gave him, especially when flying his Navion and Beechcraft Bonanza. He was a generous man that enjoyed hosting his family and friends at his Naperville home. Ken was very knowledgeable and had the ability to fix anything. He gave advice freely, especially on mechanical issues. A dedicated family man, Ken lived every day for his wife, children, grandchildren as well as his siblings and their families, making sure that no one ever went without a need or want. He will be deeply missed by all who loved him or called him a friend.

For those who would like to leave a lasting tribute to Ken's life, memorials to Muscular Dystrophy Association would be greatly appreciated.
