Loyal  L.  Kohl
     Loyal L. Kohl, 81, of North Platte, passed away Feb. 4 at his home. He was born in Wallace to Arthur W. and Alma Watson Kohl on Aug. 8, 1931.
     Loyal served in the United States Navy during the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in 1953. On Apr. 18, 1953 he married Bonnie Lee Olive in Las Vegas, Nev. His wife passed after a 50 year marriage.
     Loyal lived in California most of his life. He was an over the road truck driver for 38 years. The last company he drove for was NORCO, hauling propane. He retired in 1988 and moved to North Platte in 2004.
     Loyal loved the swap meet in Gardena, Calif., where he sold coins, hats and patches on the weekends. He rode his bike looking for change and cans to recycle. One year he almost collected enough to buy a new pick-up. Family was very important and he visited as much as possible.
     Survivors include his daughter, Cheryl Smith of North Platte; sisters, Karla Meyers and Le Etta Coons both of North Platte; grandchildren, Jennifer (Jason) Brady, Robert Easton, Lorry Easton and Jason (Bella) Kohl; and six great-grandchildren.
     He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; son, Larry Kohl; sisters, Delilah Kohl and Karren Binegar; and brothers, Wilbur (Jay) Kohl, Gilbert Kohl and Vernon Kohl.
     Cards may be sent to Cheryl Smith at 1408 Hackberry Road, North Platte, NE 69101.
     There will be no local services. Burial will take place in San Pedro, Calif. at Green Hills Cemetery next to his wife. Adams & Swanson Funeral Home is in charge of local arrangements.
