James “Jim” A. Lorenz, 52, of Matthews, NC, passed away on February 19, 2018 at home. Born in Dupage Co., IL, on June 11, 1965 to David and Lonnie Lorenz. He was a resident of Woodridge, IL for over 25 years. Most of his family and friends were in Woodridge and they enjoyed their time there together. He married Corinne in 1989 and they moved to Matthews, NC in 1990. They spent lots of time traveling and hanging out at the Lake. In 1996, they welcomed their son Andrew into their lives. Andrew meant the world to him. They enjoyed going to the beach and camping at Lake Wylie. They lived in the same house for over 25 years. All the neighbors knew Jim as the friendly neighbor, sitting on his porch, smiling, waving and watching the "culdesac" kids play. He had the biggest heart and would do anything for the ones he loved. Andrew loved him to the moon and back. He will be greatly missed.
