Thomas August Lobstein

(March 25, 1943 - May 28, 2024)


Thomas August Lobstein was born on March 25, 1943 in Lapeer, Michigan to Raymond Lobstein and Doris Marie Robinet. He passed away on May 28, 2024 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Tom grew up in Michigan, where he played football, basketball and worked on the farm. He met Harriet Loye Farnsworth at a basketball game in North Dakota. They dated for awhile before he was deployed with the Air Force.  

After serving as an MP (Military Police) for the Air Force in Africa, he and Loye married on Jan. 11, 1964. They welcomed two beautiful daughters into their family, Tress and Raena.  Upon completion of his military service, Tom worked on the Yellowtail Dam, making $3 an hour. He then worked for the Park County Sheriff's Office and later for Montana Dakota Utilities (WBI).   

After retirement, he and Loye enjoyed driving buses for Park County School District. They also served as missionaries for the LDS Institute in Powell, Wyoming. They were sealed to each other on July 3, 2014 in the Bountiful LDS Temple. Together, they have seven grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren: Kenzie, Braden, Wyatt, Steven, Duncan, Kyle, Noah, McCoy, Kobe, Avery, Rachael, Ashlynn, Kimber, Penelope, Thomas and Riley. Their grandchildren were their pride and joy and they loved them so much! 

Tom loved working with his hands and playing golf or fishing with his grandkids. He was a diligent home teacher, showed his love of the savior to everyone and was always at special events for his family, no matter how far away it was. We will miss his quick wit, funny jokes and endearing smile. He was a gentle giant with a huge heart.  

He was preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Doris, wife Loye, and brother Gerry (Sue) Lobstein. He is survived by his sisters Norma Lobstein, Mary (Ed) Spicer, Lisa (Dan) Priebe; his daughters Tress (Kevin) Fieber, Raena Kary; and seven grandsons: Chad (Candace) Fieber, Wade (Paula) Fieber, Adam (Jamie) Fieber, Scott (Brooke) Fieber, Levi (Tasha) Kary, Cole (Tiffany) Kary and Garrett Kary (Felicia).

Graveside services and interment will be held at Crown Hill Cemetery at 10 a.m. on June 14, 2024.
