Obituary Notices and Memorials

LOHFF, Robert
LOHFF, Robert 'Bob' Long-time Rosamond resident Robert 'Bob' Lohff died on June 21, 2014; he was 86 years old. Bob was a fixture in the Rosamond community for decades, and was known for helping his friends, neighbors, and even strangers when someone needed help. Bob was born in Iowa in 1927, served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and spent 20 years in the U.S. Air Force. Bob flew on intelligence missions during the Cold War, served in the Korean War, and was an aero-photographer at Edwards AFB for many of the projects there during the 1950s and 60s, including the X-15. Bob was particularly close with the sheriffs deputies who were assigned to the Rosamond and Mojave Substations. He often assisted deputies who were working alone and needed backup during a critical incident. At least one deputy owes his life to Bob, arriving in the nick of time when things were going from bad to worse. The deputies thought so much of Bob they gave him his own unofficial call sign, 'Rose 15'. Bob has no known surviving relatives, but is survived by his 'Family' of friends and fellow 'Desert Crawlers'. Bobs friends would like to thank the nurses and staff from Medicare Home Health Services, and Hoffman Hospice. All of these wonderful people provided comfort and care to Bob in his time of need. Special thanks to L.J., Bobby D, and Neil, who cared for Bob during his final days, so he could be at home. Services will be held at 11 am, Monday, June 30, 2014 at Joshua Memorial Park, Lancaster, CA. On Bobs behalf, we request that donations be made to Hoffman Hospice, which is a non-profit organization. 'Control one, É. Rose 15, É. 10-7'
