    Junior was my dad. Thank you so much for honoring our family in this way. Daddy was a very unique and hard-working man. Our family won’t be the same without him.

    Sounds like a truly fine man, They don’t make hard working men like that anymore. My condolences on your lost.

    I was down at the Threshers’ Reunion yesterday speaking with Brown Loflin about Junior Loflin. What a special person and despite his soft spoken demeanor bigger than life character. Roy Ackland and I ran into him many times over the years and it was always a delight to talk with him.
    He will certainly be missed.

    An amazing man with such a gentle spirit. We all learned so much from Junior by watching him work his horses. He was always willing to give helpful advice to us “new folks” trying to learn more about how to work with our draft horses. We will miss him.
