Born March 4, 1915 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was the son of the late Arthur Irwin Loheed and Myrtle Gladys (Jones) Loheed.

A graduate of Brockton High School in Massachusetts, Mr. Loheed received a B.S. in civil engineering in 1937 from Norwich University, Northfield, VT. Graduating fifth in his class, he was a member of the U.S. Army Reserves, attaining the rank of Captain. In August 1938, he married Phyllis E. Norton of Springfield, VT, mother of his four children.

During WWII, Mr. Loheed was a process engineer at Bethlehem Steel in Baltimore, MD, producing war materiel using techniques he would later adapt to paper and packaging design. After the war, he became a development engineer and Division Manager for the Sealright Corporation in Phoenix, NY.

In the 1970's, Mr. Loheed founded PakCo Inc., a producer of vacuum formed plastic packaging components.
