Racing with the Lobner family was one of his deepest passions. He cherished each race and the participants. His other interests included listening to classic rock and roll, classic 60’s cars, the Kansas City Chiefs, and spending time with friends and family . Donald Lee Lobner Jr was always the life of the party. Donald will be proudly remembered by family and friends as a loving father, loyal friend, proud patriot, and US Marine veteran.

Don was always there for family celebrations, be it a birthday, Christmas or any time. His love for his daughters and their families was obvious and although the gatherings were a mixed bag of exes, he was ready to start a conversation with everyone. He was a generous man and his family has continued his legacy. I will miss you Don.

Don was a big part of our lives when Lyle was alive. He would join us for Sunday dinners almost every week. I know that Don and Lyle will be adding a new level of fun to heaven. Don, you will be missed by so many...
