LOUCKS, Loyal Oct 26, 1941 – Apr 5, 2021

BINGHAM TOWNSHIP [mdash] Loyal Jean Loucks, 79, of Bingham Township, passed away Monday, April 5, 2021 at his home.
Loyal was born Oct. 26, 1941 in Detroit the son of Jean and Doris (Donley) Loucks. On April 26, 1963 in Lake City, he married Carol A. (Gillow) Loucks who survives.
Loyal was a wonderful, loving husband, father, brother and grandfather. He enjoyed being outdoors, whether it be deer hunting, camping, golfing or simply working in the yard. He loved watching sports and could often be found helping out in the press box during Suttons Bay football games. He was passionate about spending time with his grandchildren and he always offered a listening ear and sound advice.
Loyal was the glue that held his family together with calmness and compassion. He was the first to offer a helping hand to both family and friends no matter the cause. He was very handy and had a MacGyver fix for just about anything. He will be missed dearly by all who loved him. He will be forever in our hearts.
In addition to his loving wife of fifty-seven years, Carol, Loyal is survived by their three children, Kathleen Loucks, Kristin (Wayne) Mikowski, Steven (Christina) Loucks; three grandchildren, Michael Loucks, Jessica Loucks and Jackson Loucks; three siblings, Norleen (Virgil) Wenzel, Bonnie Chapman, and Sharon (Steve) Shell.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Jean Loucks and Doris Robinson; two grandchildren, Andrew Michael Loucks and Jacob Steven Loucks; two siblings, Janice Loucks and Ronald Loucks; and in-laws, Ralph and Marion Gillow, who treated Loyal like a son.
The family will welcome friends on Saturday, May 1 from 11 a.m to the start of the 1 p.m celebration of Loyal's life at Martinson Funeral Home of Suttons Bay.
Memorials may be directed to Suttons Bay Sports Boosters, P.O. Box 367, Suttons Bay, MI 49682 and Suttons Bay Bingham Fire and Rescue, PO Box 280, Suttons Bay, MI, 49682.
