He loved having family and friends over for barbeques or any other excuse to get together, and he and Marilyn were warm, hospitable hosts. His sense of humor was legendary, although nobody enjoyed his stories more than he did! He loved trips to Capistrano Beach, Bear Lake, St. George and anywhere else he could spend time with family and friends. Lothar had a big heart and was never too busy to serve his fellow man. He practiced the gospel of Jesus Christ in his treatment of others and in all his actions.
