It is with deep sadness we report the death of Scot Loomis, 73, of Taos, NM on November 15, 2020. Scot passed 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 Database Manager. And although he was legally blind, he never let his vision be an obstacle. 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 working with 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.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
