Loren Gene Sampson was born on March 9, 1940 in Brooten, Minn. He passed away unexpectedly on August 20, 2023.


He was the oldest of three children to George Sampson and Lorraine (Kalland).


He attended and graduated from the Ely High School in 1959.

Loren was a hardworking man. He worked at Reserve Mining until closure, then had many side jobs, Dublin Plumbing, Dr. Udovich, Riverpoint Resort. And he also worked for the City of Babbitt Street Department.
