Obituaries > LOSHEK, JAMES R.

Private James R. Loshek, Marine Raider, was killed in action in the South Pacific in July [July 21, 1943]. Known as “Jim” to the school era of ’40-’43, he is the first loss to be so greatly felt by present students. Jim was widely known for his activity in M-Club and Hi-Y. His action on the football field made his fellow students very proud of him.

There is no tribute high enough to be paid to the boys who have given their lives. Like so many others, Jim gave all he had to insure our ideal of America.
