Glenn "Dean" Loucks died on October 17, 2014. Born in White Plains on July 15, 1935 to Eleanor Peck and Glenn Dacey Loucks, he became a talented student and athlete at White Plains High School. As quarterback of the football team of 1950-1952, he was part of three undefeated seasons. Dean was All County, All Metropolitan and All American. At Yale University as quarterback he earned All Ivy League and All East honors. He graduated from Yale in 1957. He valued the friendships made through participation in sports. After receiving his Master's Degree in Teaching from Columbia University, he joined the staff at White Plains High School in 1960, teaching Social Studies and coaching the varsity football team until 1968. He helped and inspired many students. In early 1970's he became head coach of the Fordham University football team and helped to rebuild its football program. Much of his life was associated with Mohawk Day Camp and Tall Pines Camp in New Hampshire. In 2009 he was inducted into the Westchester Sports Hall of Fame for his superb athletic skills and innate intelligence which brought him his incredible success. He is survived by his daughter Kathy Loucks and grandson Glenn James Loucks Jr. He is predeceased by his daughter Ginger, his son Glenn J. Loucks Sr. and brother J. David Loucks.

I echo Paul Briante's good words. Mr. Loucks inspired me to love American history. He was loved and admired by everyone who were so fortunate to have had him as their history teacher (the girl students, were crazy about him!) He had a great sense of humor, too. The entire Loucks family were/are model citizens. Mr. Loucks certainly made a mark in football, but it was as a teacher that he made the more lasting mark. R.I.P.

Very sad to learn of Coach's passing. He was an inspiration to all who passed through his shadow. From WPHS, to Camp Tall Pines to serving as one of his assistant coaches at Fordham, he will be remembered as a valued mentor and friend. My condolences to the Loucks family.

Dean was a great friend from fourth grade at Mamaroneck Ave Elementary through high school and after. We had some wonderful times at Mohawk and just hanging out. Dean and his Father and Mother had a big influence on my life. I was proud to tell everyone I knew that #12 was a friend of mine. God Bless --Dean you are in my prayers.

Deepest condolences to the Loucks family and many friends of Dean Loucks. Coach Loucks was our White Plains teacher, football coach and always a willing counselor. Dean gave us so much more than athletic skills. He inspired us to succeed through his example of hard work and intense competitive spirit. Dean provided us with so many life lessons and taught us to respect and be proud of the White Plains tradition of always seeking excellence in all our pursuits. We are eternally thankful to you and will miss you greatly.

Rest In Paradise Coach Loucks,

I knew you as a happy, very straight-forward, caring gentleman and will never forget you. After all, what man other than Dean Loucks would be able explain to me (in detail) about Tiger-etiquette?? I still roar loudly and proudly and thank you much for your time spent encouraging and amusing me.

I extend my deepest condolences to the entire Loucks family and their many friends during this time of grief. I will keep you in prayer for strength, peace and healing.

I went to Camp Tall Pines and was also a counselor at the camp. During my first year at Camp, I was terrified of the water and he not only taught me how to swim, but how to love the water. I became a senior life saver with his help and guidance. I also worked in the athletic department when Dean coached Football at Fordham. He was classy, incredibly athletic, a great teacher, smart and fun, qualities that are very rarely combined in one person. RIP Coach and Teacher.

My condolences to the Loucks family. During my years at WPHS he was intermittently around the track area. He was just observant and thoughtful. I'm very saddened, and yes he was a very good influence for me. thank you Coach Loucks.

My condolence to the Loucks family for their loss. Coach Loucks taught me the meaning of hard work and dedication to the sport of football. I can still picture him standing at the top of the hill yelling again! Dean, rest in peace.
