Kevin Loftus

Founder

Kevin grew up in a large family on a farm outside of Magnolia and graduated from Logan –Magnolia. I always enjoyed working with my hands and went on to attend and graduate from Universal Technical Institute with a degree in Heating, Ventilation Air-Conditioning, and Refrigeration. While in school I worked for West Omaha Service doing heating, air conditioning, commercial refrigeration and appliance repair. This supplied very valuable hands on experience during my schooling. During the next several years I worked for Shannon Heating and Cooling as a service technician and installer, then for Offut Air Force Base as a refrigeration mechanic. In 1974 I began contracting service work through American Furnace in Council Bluffs which allowed me to begin building a customer base in Logan and in 1975 Loftus Heating and Air Conditioning officially began. The business was run from our home until 1986 when we purchased the old Gambles building on Main Street in Logan. In 1988 with the help and guidance of a Business Development Outreach Program through Iowa State University we incorporated our business. We have been serving the people in Harrison County and surrounding counties since that time.

In my free time I enjoy family gatherings, going to movies with my wife, hunting with my sons, brothers and cousins, vacationing in Minnesota with our children and grandchildren and going out with friends. My wife and I also enjoy working with young couples from our parish as they prepare for marriage.

Becky Loftus

Accounting

When my husband, Kevin founded Loftus Heating and Air Conditioning in 1975, I came along as an unwitting partner. With a basic knowledge of bookkeeping and accounting from high school business classes I was able to keep books from home, take the phone calls and still and be there to raise our 3 children. We both attended a business management class through Lennox in 1983. I also took accounting classes through Iowa Western Community College and a business computing class through UNO. Born and raised in Logan and after living in Omaha for the first 5 years of our marriage, we returned to settle in Logan in 1975. We have lived in our current home since 1977. We have been married for 43 years. Our 3 children live close by and we have 9 wonderful grandchildren. My hobbies include reading, gardening, attending grandchildren events and having date nights with Kevin.

Ronda Oloff

Office Manager

My husband, Terry and I live on an acreage southwest of Logan. We have one grown son Joe who lives in Blaire, Ne. with his wife Rachel and our four grandchildren, Maggie, Dylan, RaeLynn and Zoey. I graduated from Logan-Magnolia with the class of 1980. I went to Barber school in Omaha, Nebraska and hold a Master Barbers license in both Nebraska and Iowa. I soon discovered that the city life was not for me. Both my husband and I grew up on farms and we love living in the country. We enjoy fishing and go to Minnesota almost every summer. Our hobbies are whatever our grandchildren are doing at the moment! Whether it is football, volleyball, wrestling, dance or cheer leading. One of my most favorite things in life is being a Grandma.
