Editor's Note: In honor of this year's Loberg Day festivities celebrating our late founder and the values he held dear, one of Tom Loberg's children, Ruth (Loberg) Poston shared her thoughts about her father and his legacy.
What was Tom like as a father? How was he at home and/or at work?
He was a hardworking, responsible father. Strict, but loving. He was honest and wanted to set a good example for us. He would never ask us to do anything that he wasn't willing or capable of doing himself. There were two things in Dad's life that were very important to him: God and family. Our family would attend church twice every Sunday. As a former high school trumpet player and drum major, he loved music. Some mornings, my siblings and I would be woken up by Dad playing marches written by John Philips Sousa. He wanted to share his love of music, which is why he encouraged us to join the band at school.
