Jaden Charles Lohrengel was born into this world 6 weeks early on Easter Sunday morning April 20, 2003. He flew to heaven also too early on September 18, 2021.
Jaden was a 2021 graduate of Forks High School and graduated with honors. He earned over $16,000 worth of scholarships to go toward Lineman College in Meridian, Idaho that was to begin at the end of October. He worked so hard through school and in his multiple jobs to set himself up to be successful in life. Jaden earned a name for himself around the town of Forks as being a hard worker, a helper, responsible, charming, fun, and just an all-around nice guy. Jaden was ready, he was proud of his accomplishments, and he was so excited to move on to the next adventure in his life.
Jaden’s life and the way he lived it was powerful. His beliefs and values were good and strong, his work ethic amazing, his love was deep and kind, he was a good friend and listener, he loved his family, he was a helper and a giver and was always willing to lend a hand. He lived with determination and was competitive, he loved to laugh and to tease and to make people smile, he craved learning new things, loved making money and spending money, and his personality and smile would light a room. If you knew Jaden you knew you had a friend for life. He loved Forks, the community, and all it had to offer him, he was a true Forks boy in every sense. He had an old soul and was further along in his life than his 18 years.
Jaden was one of those people that was good at everything he did, he was a natural. Anything that involved a chain saw, axe, winch, and haywire he was in. He cut cord firewood and mowed yards for people in the community since he was 12 years old. Jaden worked at Forks Outfitters in grocery then in hardware for a couple years and always wanted to be the fastest at putting away freight and he loved helping the customers and to have a good chat. He was ending the summer doing fire watch for Bruch and Bruch Construction. He loved riding dirt bikes and was well known for his skill and long wheelies that he could handle with ease. Jaden loved tools, machinery, and fixing things since he was a very young boy. He loved to work on his truck or his friends’ trucks turning wrenches, working on engines, doing lifts, wiring jobs, and anything else that would allow him to use all of his tools. He recently took up golfing with a couple friends which really made him happy. Jaden loved driving and learned all of the logging roads all around the area. He loved to hunt and was teaching his 10-month-old chocolate lab, Buck, how to fetch grouse. Best of all, he was the very best at being a big brother and role model to his brother Kyle. His legacy will live on forever.
Jaden is survived by his mother, Julie Dannemiller, father, Shawn Lohrengel, and brother Kyle Lohrengel. He is also survived by grandparents, Joy and Frank Leyendecker, Larry and Maggie Dannemiller, and Paulette Bryant. Also, uncle Jason Dannemiller, aunt and uncle Tammy and Greg Wasson, and cousins Jordan and Chase Dannemiller and Conner, Brett and Lauren Wasson.
Jaden was preceded in death by grandpa Glenn Lohrengel, uncle Joel Dannemiller, and great-grandpa and grandma Link and Joyce Mueller.
