February 18, 1949 — April 21, 2023

Port Crane, NY

Alan A. Loomis, Sr., 74, of Port Crane, NY, passed away on Friday, April 21, 2023, at his home, while surrounded by his loving family.

 

Alan was born in Cortland, NY, on February 18, 1949, the son of the late Alton and Louise Garcia Loomis.  He was a member of the United Methodist Church of South Otselic.  Through his high school years, Al worked on a dairy farm for several years and then purchased his own farm in Taylor, NY.  He then sold that farm and purchased another farm in Aurora. He also worked  for the Operating Engineers Union Local #158 as a heavy equipment operator until his retirement in 2013.  During his time at the union, he served as the union steward for many years.  Throughout his retirement, Al enjoyed being a member of many tractor pulling clubs and was proud of his tractor, “Wishful Thinking” that almost always won best in show.

 

He is survived by his life partner, Phyllis O’Neill; his children, Alan (Darcie) Loomis, Jr., of Moravia, Aric Loomis of Clifton Springs, and Adam Loomis of Moravia; his stepchildren, Jennifer (Ron) King of Binghamton, Kelly (Kevin) Twitchell of Binghamton, and William (Brooke) O’Neill of Long Island.  He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Hunter (Kristen), Parker, Aiden, and Ty Loomis; his step-grandchildren, Hunter (Toni) King, Hayden King, Nathan (Cassie) Twitchell, Kaleb Twitchell, Gavin, Jack, and Landon O’Neill; his sisters, Lolita (Harold) White of Marathon and Lonnie (Bruce) Hakes of North Pitcher; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

 

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Linda Loomis Howard.
