John Lewis Loe was born on June 23, 1939, on the family farm outside of Cottonwood to Edwin and Hazel (Cole) Loe. He was baptized as an infant and confirmed in the Christian faith. He graduated from Cottonwood High School in 1957, attended St. Olaf College, and then served in the National Guard from 1961-1967. On December 31, 1966, he was united in marriage to Kathy Nikolaisen at St. Lucas Lutheran Church in rural Cottonwood.

John and Kathy raised their family on a farm in rural Hanley Falls where they farmed with his brother, Harold, and his wife, Ellen, for many years until retirement. John loved farming, serving on the board of directors for the local bank, spending winters in Texas, and spoiling his grandchildren with unlimited amounts of dessert.

John passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, April 15, 2024, at the age of 84 years, 9 months, and 23 days. May his memory be held dear. 

John is survived by his wife, Kathy; daughter, Meredith (Chad) Mammen of Worthington, MN; son, David (Missi) Loe of Cottonwood, MN, and grandchildren: Ashley, Isaac (Alli), Andrew (Genna), and  Aaron (fiancée Ava Johnston); son, Mark (Melinda) Loe of Belle Plaine, MN, and grandchildren: Grace, Joshua, Rachael, Olivia, Ethan, and Jaelyn; sisters, DeAnn Hanson of Montrose, CO, Sharon Loe of Eau Claire, WI, Susan Gronvall of Red Wing, MN; and many nieces and nephews.

John was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Harold and David Loe; granddaughter, Sarah Loe; parents-in-law, Darrell & Idella Nikolaisen; and brothers-in-law, Jerrold Hanson and Daniel Gronvall.
