I was so sorry to hear of your father' passing. He had such a personality, one that was truly bigger than life. The obituary was so interesting to me, as I knew very little of his background and of his many accomplishments. I hope you and your family our doing well. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

I have many wonderful memories of working for this great man. He will always be Mr. Loomis to me. I have to admit, he scared me to death at times, but he could also make me laugh and always made me feel appreciated. I learned so much from him. He will forever be missed. My condolences to the entire Loomis family.

Jim was a treasured friend of my father. My father worked with Jim at Magnavox in Torrance and worked for Jim at Magnavox in Ft. Wayne so the history ran deep. They shared a mutual admiration for each other. My father often said "I don't know where I'd be without Jim Loomis".
I adored Jim. He was a caring soul who helped me through some very trying times in my life. I valued the way he cared and the advice

I will miss Jim's big hugs and his slaps on the back that
almost knocked you over.I will miss you Jim not being
a big talker in the morning but didn'care if I rambled on
May you rest in peace now.
