They lived in Rock Rapids, Iowa, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Scottsdale, Arizona, before moving to Larchwood, Iowa in 2004.  They raised together three children; Lina Marie, Lorenzo IV, and Emily Ann.  They were his purpose for everything, and everything he worked for.

He was most proud of being a marine and a family man, but also worked jobs such as Culligan man, a sales route driver for Boar’s Head in Arizona, and most recently worked as a telecommunications sales representative for Knology out of Sioux Falls. He had a passion for sports, and played and coached baseball for many years in California. He was an avid football fan who loved the Green Bay packers and West Lyon football. 

     He enjoyed spending time with the kids and grandkids by going on hikes, fishing, camping and long road trips. His family will remember him as hardworking, patriotic, loyal, a loving father, and a family man.

     Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 26 years, Dawn, his three children: Lina Marie, Lorenzo IV, and Emily Ann Romero all of Larchwood, IA; and his two grandchildren, Nahla and Zak, Mother Maryjane Linton, step-father Kenneth Linton; siblings, Eric (Melissa Hanson) Romero of Salem, OR, Jody (Bob) Ruiz of San Jose, CA, Margaret Ann (Michael) Serck of Sioux Falls, SD, and Kenneth Jr. (Courtney) Linton of Larchwood, IA; and many other extended family.
