Harold Eugene Loman, 84, son of Harold Edward and Julia Genevieve (Harms) Loman, was born on April 21, 1937 in Windsor, Missouri. He departed this life at his home, surrounded by his family, on January 24, 2022.

Harold grew up in Windsor and graduated from Windsor High School. He met Loynel Gilkey and they were married at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Cole Camp on February 1, 1958. Before moving to their current farm in Deepwater in 1963, Harold was in the grocery business. Through the years, he raised Angus cattle, hogs, and planted row crops. He was a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church, where he served in many leadership areas. He was also a long-time member of the Truman Water Board.

Harold was a dedicated husband and father, working hard to provide a good living and loving home life for his wife and children. His perseverance and hard work allowed Loynel to stay at home as a farm wife and raise their children. Harold was very family-oriented. He showed his support of his kids and grandkids with his consistent attendance of the important events in their lives. He almost never missed any of their big sporting events, musical shows, or presentations. Acknowledging the accomplishments of his loved ones was of utmost importance to him.

Though not a musician himself, Harold had a wonderful appreciation for talent. He particularly enjoyed listening to his wife, children, and grandchildren sing and play. In later years, Harold was able to take time to pursue gardening and fishing. He had quite a “green thumb.” He grew, canned, and froze many delicious vegetables and enjoyed tending to many varieties of flowers. He was known as “The Crappie King” by his fishing buddies.

Harold was a good family man, a good neighbor, and a good friend to those who knew him. He was a man of remarkable faith. He had a fun sense of humor and many “matter-of-fact” sayings he shared at just the right times. As Harold’s health began to fail, his wife and family bonded together to help care for him so he could remain in the comfort of his home. He never complained about his illnesses or problems, taking them in stride with dignity while demonstrating gratitude to his family and caretakers. He leaves many cherished memories of love and smiles with his family and friends.

Preceding Harold in death were his parents and his sister, Sharon Goetze. Survivors include his wife of almost 64 years, Loynel; his children Bret Loman and his wife Tina (Clinton, MO), Kurt Loman and his wife Kerry (Warrensburg), Jane Klinksick and her husband Lance (Deepwater); grandchildren: Eric Loman and his wife Jennifer (Liberty), Brian Loman and his wife Kendra (Clinton), Stanton Loman (Kansas City), Dalton Loman and his wife Aleah (Lee’s Summit), Katie Klinksick (Butler) and Grant Klinksick (Appleton City); great-grandchildren: Jaxson, Loralei, Jocelyn, Blaine Loman, and one more great-grandchild on the way; brother Mike Loman and his wife Jan (Camdenton); and brother-in-law Jim Goetze (Stover).
