Gregory Lobdell Obituary

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Written by Mark Lobdell 

Greg Lobdell was born on January 16, 1938 in Wyoming, St.Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota, to Donald E. Lobdell and Geraldine Carlstedt.  He moved with his mother and his sister Donna Lee in 1950 and traveled with the family to Long Beach, California where he attended Woodrow Wilson High School.  Greg was very popular in school and achieved honors. Additionally, he was nominated as President of the School and this is where he met Joan Marie Starkey.  Joan and Greg were married until 1976 when he later moved to Cypress.  

Greg is survived by his three children, Mark Lobdell of Veracruz, Michael Lobdell of Fountain Valley, and Scott Lobdell of San Francisco. Greg is also survived by his four grandchildren, Alexi, Matthew, Sophia, and Scott Jr.  

Greg set out to continue his most experienced work as a corporate contract writer. He continued to work making contracts for different companies and finally decided to work overseas as a contract research developer in Iraq in the US Military Base for Private Civilian Work.  Greg also made some small investments and eventually retired around the age of 70. Once retired, he then decided to write a book about biblical trials and tribulations. He also developed a biblical research study guide for groups and single researchers seeking a better understanding of Gods work to help improve their own lives in troubling economies.  Greg’s book, "The Berean's Guide to the Time of the End", has been published, and in this book, he expresses his deepest concerns along with Gods intentions for our county’s troubled times to help foresee the values of what could be a successful turnaround of its uncertain future.  Greg was loved by family and friends and never gave up on trying to keep family together.  Greg succumbed to his illness on February 19, 2024. He died peacefully in his sleep and had family around him just before passing away a couple of days later.

Greg’s professional life was primarily set in the corporate business world. He was a proficient contract writer and worked in the corporate world for many years. In his last major professional job, he decided to adventure overseas. Greg was a private civilian research developer at a US military base in Iraq in the 1990’s. After his contract was finished Greg retired at age 70.

Greg then used his writing and research skills to focus on a deeply committed passion of his: His Almighty Father God.  Greg held a true love for Our Father in Heaven and spent many years in research to write his last book for the Christian world.

Greg’s book was recently published just before his death by Covenant Books. Entitled: “The Berean’s Guide to the Time of the End” it is now available at bookstores everywhere or online at Apple iTunes store, Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
