Scot Loomis

It is with deep sadness we report the passing of Scot Loomis, 73, of Taos after a long battle with cancer. Scot was born March 11, 1947 in Weymouth, MA. When he was 9, his family moved to Lancaster, CA where he attended Lancaster High School and U.C. Berkeley. In 1975 he visited Hawaii and stayed for 37 years. Scot loved to travel and visited Russia, Estonia, Siberia, Australia, New Zealand, the Tahitian Islands, the Caribbean islands, Ecuador, Peru, Belize, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina. On Oahu Scot worked for the Honolulu Advertiser as a Data Base Manager. And although he was legally blind, he never let his vision be an obstacle. Scot once braved the unpredictable waters of the Molokai Channel to bring his 36' sailboat safely to its slip on Oahu. In 2012 Scot and his wife, Laura, retired to Taos, from where they continued to travel. Scot was a friend of Bill's and found a calling in helping others. He often said, "I may die with this disease, but I don't have to die from it." He passed with 35 years sobriety. Scot is preceded in death by his father, Milton Elsworth Loomis and Mother, Ethelyn Elnora Loomis, nee Potter. He is survived by his wife, Laura, his sister, Bonnie Loomis LaBonte (Rich), many nieces and nephews, and many friends. He will be greatly missed. The family of Scot Loomis has entrusted the care of their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos.  www.devargastaos.com   866-657-4019
