Lawrence J. Loonam, 54, passed away April 15, 2013.
Born in Malta in 1958, Larry was the son of John F. and Barbara E. Loonam (deceased). He is survived by his father John, of Gloucester; a daughter, Heather Velders of Barnegat, N.J.; and two grandchildren, Lisette and Christopher. He is also survived by three brothers: Michael of Mauldin, S.C.; John Jr. of Greenville, N.C.; and Gregory of Port Royal; sisters Kathleen of Williamsburg, Diane Parker and Sandy of Gloucester.
Larry graduated from York High School in 1976 and went directly into the U.S. Navy. He worked in the construction field, holding various positions. He was an avid fisherman, always looking for that big one.
A family memorial service was held April 27 near the Avalon Fishing Pier on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, a favorite fishing spot where his ashes were dispersed in the Atlantic Ocean.
