Jack Darrell Lohman was born Feb. 17, 1933, in Anatone, to Herman and Viola Lohman.

Jack joined the U.S. Army in February of 1953 and was stationed in Germany as an Army messenger/clerk. He was awarded the National Defense, Good Conduct and Army Service medals. He was honorably discharged as a corporal in 1955.

Jack married his wife of 60 years, Donna Kanikkeberg, on Oct. 21, 1956, at the Kendrick Methodist Church, and they were blessed with two children, Janet and Doug.

Jack and his brother, Gerald, farmed and ranched for 43 years in the Kendrick area before Jack retired in 1997. During his tenure farming and ranching, he was a board member of the Kendrick Rochdale and was a supervisor for the Soil and Water Conservation District. In 1986, he and Gerald were awarded the Outstanding Conservation Farmer award by the Soil and Water Conservation District.

Jack was very involved in the Kendrick community. He was on the Cameron Emmanuel Lutheran Church council and was on the Kendrick Juliaetta Recreation Board for 18 years. He also was proud to have helped rebuild the Kendrick football field and was the chief cook for the Locust Blossom Festival for 36 years. In 2011, Jack and Donna were honored as the Locust Blossom Festival grand marshals.
