After retirement, Loffredo still spent a lot of time at the company — with the exception of winter, which he spent in Arizona. He spent his final years living at Arbor Springs, a care facility in Des Monies.
“Everyone there called him Papa and say they will never forget his laughter and sense of humor,” Loffredo said. “He will be missed by many.”
A memorial service was Aug. 19 in Des Moines at Iles Funeral Home, whose website has an obituary written by Gene Loffredo and a guestbook.
