Harold Peter Loscher Jr. age 56, passed away surrounded by his loving family on October 4, 2021 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Pete was born on November 25, 1964 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Harold Peter Loscher and Sharon Faye Loscher. He graduated from South High School where he played football and wrestled. He served a two-year mission to Roanoke, Virginia for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had a successful career of 30 years at RC Willey as the warehouse manager.
He married the love of his life, Tami, on June 3, 1988 in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they had two beautiful daughters, Chelsea and Chandre. He finally got some sons when his daughters married Shawn & Kevin. His family was his world, especially his grandchildren: Finnley & Brax Harris and Leyna Muniz.
Besides spending time with family, Pete had a passion for softball, fishing, camping and walking his four legged “son” Ryder. He loved to travel and see new places, but hated trying new foods or branching out from his picky eating habits. He loved volunteering his time to make children feel loved as their furry best friend “Rusty” as a part of Mascot Miracles Foundation. Pete was a funny, sarcastic man and a jokester at heart. He didn’t always say it out loud, but those he loved, he loved immensely. Pete didn’t realize the impact he had on all those around him as he touched each person he has come in contact with in his lifetime.
Pete is preceded in death by his mother, Sharon Loscher, and great nephew, Holden Curtis. He is survived by his father, Harold Loscher. His loving wife and best friend, Tami Loscher. His daughters; Chelsea (Shawn) Harris and Chandre (Kevin) Muniz. His grandchildren; Finnley & Brax Harris and Leyna Muniz. His siblings; Allen (Paula) Loscher, James (Jill) Loscher, Kent (Teresa) Loscher, Lee Loscher, Janice (Ben) Frost, and Jason (Kristin) Loscher. His many nieces and nephews.

I have just learned of the heartbreaking news of Pete’s passing, my heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends. I attended South High School with Pete and over the course of many years have played countless softball games with Pete throughout the valley. HIT IT LONG AND FAR MY FRIEND AND RUN LIKE THE WIND !!!!!!!
I worked with Pete for many years at R.C. Willey. I loved walking thru the will call office and having Pete there to have a conversation with. What a great guy and wonderful employee for RC Willey. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a good one that went to soon.

I am lost for words Great guy and a great Family WAY to soon
Ana and Alden loved their Mascot Miracle friend, Rusty. I’m not sure if anyone truly knows the miracles that they help with. After quite a few years at MM events, Alden remarked, “I think there’s a people in there”. So, to the “people” who has left the suit behind, we love you so much and thank you!
Our hearts go out to your family. We know “Rusty” from the MMF. Pete has always brought joy to the hearts of our children and many others. Thank you for his service and loving support.
- Nick and Melissa Larkin family
From what I could tell, Pete treated everyone with the same big smile and kindness, whether it was the first time they met or an old friend. Pete and I were not close, but I honestly felt better every time I saw him and he said hello. I’m sad to see him pass. My condolences to everyone who is hurting from his loss.
I joined R.C.Willey29 years ago in 1992. I had never used a computer before, they were a mystery to me. In my first week I forgot my password and how to get it, as I tried I was not using very nice language. Someone tapped my shoulder and asked if they could help? It was Pete. I can't count how many times thru the years he clocked me in when I forgot to clock out the night before. As the years rolled by we became good friends, had interesting chats, found a lot of common ground. He told me about his volunteering and showed me a picture in costume on his bike, I was also sworn to silence. I will truly miss you Pete. If you were lucky enough to know him you knew a treasure.

It's so sad to hear another awesome soul has gone to the other side ❤️.. know our hearts are broken,I will always remember Pete as a kindred soul...I love you sweet niece of mine... sending lots of love and healing light to everyone.. xoxo aunt Patti
You and your beautiful girls are in our hearts and prayers. We loved having you and Pete in our ward for so many years. You both were such great examples and I could always tell you and Pete were very close and deeply in love. May the saviors arms wrap around you all at this very difficult time. Sending hugs.
Dear Loscher Family,
I haven’t completely processed the news that Pete has passed from this existence. We’re all to young to be losing childhood friends. My mind has been flooded with a thousand memories. Summer water fights in the backyard. Sleep outs and going to Glendale Golf Course to get golf balls out of the lake. A thousand wiffle ball games. Oh what I’d give to be 13 playing wiffle ball with all the 1st ward neighbor boys again. Those days were heaven. And I can still see in my minds eye Pete running around the bases in a softball game. How did his legs move so fast.
I’m saddened, by the terrible news. I regret not making an effort to get the old gang together for a BBQ. Oh how life gets in the way. I’m so grateful for my days sharing the corners of 1400 S and 1000 W with the Loscher family. We shared together a wonderful and magical youth that has knit us together in friendship and love that I know extends beyond this frail existence. My prayer for my dear Loscher friends is that through Christ’s atonement, your sadness will be transformed to gratitude, and that the peace of the Holy Spirit will abide with you all continually. With the fondest of memories and affection. Love Ryan and Julie
My heart broke when I heard that Pete had passed away. He was such a great guy and was always so fun to work with over the 25+years I knew him. Tami and family you are in our thoughts and prayers, know that Pete will always be thought of with kindness and much respect. He will be truly missed! Much love to you all.
Our family share our deepest condolences. May the Lord bless and comfort your family and friends.
Loved Pete. He was the nicest guy in the warehouse. Praying for your family.
I worked with Pete for over 25 years before retiring from RCW. Pete was one of my favorite people at work and my go to guy for NASCAR questions!
I’m so sorry for the families loss, we all really lost one of the good guys in this world.
God bless you, Pete.
So saddened to hear of Pete's passing, Pete is such a great guy. I first met Pete when I started at the SSL store. Was always helpful and kind even to us new hire's that didn't know anything. I got the opportunity to work with him again when I moved back from California and got to help him a few times with RC Willey parades and the old '37 Chevy. I purchased a Ford Superduty very similar to Pete's (same color, cab, bed, etc), it's was fun to park mine next to his and see two twins in the parking lot. Thanks be to the Lord for the atonement and eternal families. God bless!!!
My heart goes out to you and your family. Deepest condolences. Hugs to you and you family. I’m so sorry.
I grew up with Pete. Started in the neighborhood, elementary at Riley and Senior year at South High. He was such an amazing person. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time.
Pete was a quality man. He was always in a great mood and wearing a smile. I always enjoyed talking to him about everything from hunting and fishing to hearing him brag about his family. His work as a mascot was always a great topic of conversation and he was very compassionate and a great deciple of our loving savior. I will miss him greatly and feel blessed to have known him.
Best wishes to Pete's family during this difficult time. I knew Pete well and had worked with him over the past few years. Respected others and was respected by others. Certainly a difficult time for the RC Willey family as well. May he rest in peace.
