Truly beloved by his students, who always admired the way that their teacher made history come alive.
Later in life, Loy's love for the LDS church led him to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with his wife. They also spent countless hours seeking his ancestors in genealogy work in Billings Montana. He was a dedicated man, never waivering in his faith or beliefs. He and his wife served as ordinance workers at the Ogden Utah Temple, making the long drive each week to serve others.
He loved to build and tinker, he was kind and compassionate, and will be remembered as a loving and caring man with an impish laugh and twinkle in his deep blue eyes. Although faced with many significant challenges in his life, they were overcome by compassion and strong work ethics, that have been passed on to future generations.
