Heinie (Heinz) George Loth
October 30, 1929 (always celebrated on October 31) – June 21, 2020
Heinie’s guardian angel finally threw in the towel and told him it’s time to head to heaven. Heinie passed away peacefully at home after deciding to stop 8 years of dialysis.
Heinie retired from Ford Motor Company as a wood pattern maker. He worked on the first Mustang, which was a game changer for the industry. Everyone in the family was a beneficiary of ‘government projects’…..from clocks, to jewelry boxes, barometers, rocking horses, wagons, and more.
He had a good and quick sense of humor, striking blue eyes, and could be described as a ‘bit’ stubborn at times. He was the general contractor, handyman, and auto mechanic of the household, and chief project consultant for the family, often saying ‘when all else fails, read the instructions’.
We all remember family adventures and the granddaughters especially remember many special times with a Gramps who played with them and was so proud of all their achievements.
He always assumed the good in people, lived by the golden rule, and we will miss him deeply.
Special thanks to Nurse Keri at Hospice of Michigan, and the wonderful first line health care providers at Davita Dialysis on Ekhart St.
A Remembrance will be held at a later time.
Heinie was born to George and Anastasia (Schenvelski) Loth. He is survived by his wife of (nearly!) 70 years, Dolores. Sister: Irene Draus. Daughter: Karen Loth; Sons: Gary (Nola) Loth; David (Debi) Loth; Grandaughters: Kate (Rich) Federer; Jen (Dave) Schwanky; Lauren Loth: Nola’s son David Scott Gray and family: and four great grandchildren: Evelyn and Allison Schwanky and Wyatt and Wes Federer.
