Robert Louis "Bob" Lohmann

Published 9-10-13

ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Robert Louis “Bob” Lohmann, 76, of Enid, will be 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, with Pastor Kenneth Wade officiating. Cremation will follow the service under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home. The family will receive friends 6-7 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.

Bob was the son of Theodore and Auguste Engelken Lohmann of Alva, Okla., and was born on the farm southeast of Alva on Feb. 14, 1937.

He was reunited with his son Jeff on Sept. 7, 2013, surrounded by the love of his family.

He attended Zion Lutheran School through the 8th grade and then graduated from Alva High School in 1954. He attended Northwestern State College of Alva, and then graduated from Oklahoma A&M College in 1959, with a degree in agricultural education. He was a proud supporter of the OSU “Posse” Club and a loyal “Cowboy” fan for the last 56 years.

Bob taught Vo-Ag at Greenfield and Dover. He was a manager of Perry and Newkirk Cooperatives. In 1970, Bob established Northwest Vet Supply Inc. in Enid, Okla., which he owned and operated for over 40 years. During this time he became a founding member of a leading national animal health company Agrilabs, serving on the board of directors for over nine years.

Bob was an active member of the Grand National Quail Club, serving in many capacities including president and in 1998, inducted into the “Quail Club” Hall of Fame.

Bob was a well-known supporter of the agricultural community throughout Garfield County and the state of Oklahoma. His involvement with OSU extension programs, junior livestock shows and educational meetings strengthened our entire region. Bob was instrumental in forming the Garfield County Livestock Boosters to raise monies for our youth. Bob received the only “Man of the Year” honor for all he had done. Bob was very humbled to receive this honor.

Although, Bob enjoyed hunting, fishing, ranching, golfing, OSU games and being at the cabin, most importantly he loved spending time with his family and friends. His grandchildren were the light of his life. Not only was he the best Dad and Gramps, he was a true friend to us all.

Bob is survived by Delores Price; daughters, Joy Smith and husband Larry of Enid, Jill Westfahl and husband Al of Lahoma; seven grandchildren, Cody Westfahl and wife Meredith of Enid, Miranda DeCook and husband Brian of Enid, Casie Vos and husband Andrew of Arcadia, Drake Smith and wife Liz of Enid, Dylan Smith and wife Stacie of Owasso, Drew Smith and wife Chelsea of Oklahoma City, and Derek Smith of Oklahoma City; 10 great-grandchildren, Cooper and Charlee Westfahl, Lawson Lohmann DeCook, Ruger Vos, Colton and Hayden Johnson, Slade Smith, Macyn Smith, Emery Smith and Daltan Smith; sisters, Dorothy Anderson, and Bernice Tyree and Charles Bird; brother, Harold; Delores’s daughter, Raquel and husband Brian; grandsons, Cameron and Connor Pletcher; and many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Jeff; sisters, Margaret Larison, Gertrude Canaan and Velma Nordyke; in-laws, Wayde and Erma Lee Lyon and Delores’s son, Chris Schmitz.
