Loyal D. "Grumpy" Nothstein
unfortunately I can not remember Loyal as Grumpy, to me he was always my big brother who was always there to take care of his siblings. When he was 8 or 9 I remember as Mom was going to work telling Loyal to watch us and feed us supper. When we went into the Childrens Home Ken and Bee went into the main part of the home and Loyal went to the Boys Farm and they had a time trying to decide what to do with me I had just turned 9 and policy was a person should be 10 but I was a big kid. Loyal told them I could handle it and he would watch over me so I went to the farm too. After we were out of the home and going to school, Loyal quit school and went to work to help Mom, when I graduated I went into the service and sent back allotment to mom and Loyal went back to school and graduated. I remember Loyal as a wonderful caring loving big Brother.
I'm so sorry I couldn't be there. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Loyal was truly one of a kind, and it has been a privilege to have known him.
