Loren Freidrich Heinrich Maschman was the eighth of thirteen children born to Ben and Anna Maschman. While his parents surname was Maschman (as indicated by numerous records and their burial markers), Loren used the surname "Marschman", with an 'r'.

Loren joined the United States Army in 1943 and fought through the remainder of World War II. The units he fought with earned a total of five battle stars. After the war, he was active in the American Legion.

While in the service, Loren met and wed Ruth Schroeder. She died before the end of 1943.

After the war, Loren settled in Arlington Heights, Illinois where he owned and operated a plumbing business called "Loren's Rodding and Plumbing". Loren was a plumber by trade.

It was not long before Loren married Joyce Welch. There were three children produced by this union: Terry, Cathey and Sandra. Loren and Joyce divorced in 1968. Two years later, Loren married Dorothy Nelson.

Funeral services for Loren Maschman were held on March 26, 2005 at the Oehler Funeral Home in Arlington Heights. He was buried in the Mount Emblem Cemetery in Elmhurst, Illinois, though there is no headstone marking the grave.
