Obituary

Daniel was born in Humboldt on October 8, 1927 to Arnold and Agnes (nee Heinen) Loehr. He grew up on the family farm south of St. Peter’s College, Muenster, SK and attended St Francis School just east of Muenster. He married Stella Koob, October 12, 1949, at St. Peter’s Cathedral, Muenster. Dan and Stella remained on the family farm raising 11 children until 1971 when they moved to Watson after Daniel took the position as the manager of the Watson Credit Union. In his younger years, Daniel enjoyed playing violin in the St. Peter’s Orchestra as well as guitar for sing- a-longs at family gatherings. He picked up a passion for golfing after moving to Watson, and in his later years he also enjoyed the comradeship of getting together with his card playing buddies on a weekly basis, playing various poker games (all in fun). Dan constantly shared his political views with his brother Ed who had a similar perspective. Daniel loved to connect with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was heavily involved in community groups and activities in the area over the years. Since July 2006, as a representative for the St. Peter’s College Loehr Family Bursary Endowment, Daniel has been presenting the Bursary Award to a student meeting the criteria required for receiving the said award at the St. Peter’s College Annual Awards Banquet. The award was established from a sale of a tractor jointly owned by the descendants of the John and Catherine Loehr family. The District of Saskatchewan Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus honoured Daniel by naming their class of new members the “Sir Knight Daniel Loehr Class” at the May 4, 2013 exemplification. On May 15, 2016, Daniel also was recognized for his many years of service by the Watson Golf Club who named the clubhouse the “Daniel Loehr Club House” in his honour.
