Unforgotten Soldier

On January 6, 2020, Retired Sgt. David R. Lofton passed away, alone, in his home in Junction City, Kansas. 

71 year old Vietnam Veteran, Retired Sgt. Lofton had no known living family members.

Expecting little to no crowd, hundreds of  Active duty military, retired veterans, members of the Kansas Highway Patrol, and community members gathered at Kansas Veterans' Cemetery in Manhattan, Kansas on January 21, 2020 to honor a man most never knew - but who lived to serve them all. 

Just days before the service a genealogist located Mahlon Lofton, third cousin to Retired Sgt. David Lofton, who attended the service. 

Retired Sgt. Lofton's ashes were laid to rest in the Cemetery's columbarium walls.

Rest easy knowing you will never be forgotten.
