  • Notes  Died:
    • Corydon M.Loomis, 81, a retired Corpsman in the US Navy of 20 years passed away Monday, April 16, 2012 with his family by his side at Kent Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Gloria (Savard) Loomis for 55 years and loving father of their children Kimberly L. Roderick and her husband, John; Jacqueline L. Jordan and her husband, David; Steven D. Loomis.

      Born in Jackson, MI, he was a son of the late Walter F. and Elsa C. (Frankeberger) Loomis. He was the loving father of Corydon M. Loomis, Jr., Bonnie J. Hern, Diane L. Shepheard, and David B. Loomis; devoted grandfather of Kauri-Lynn, Joshua, John, Tyler, Jared, Garrett, Benjamin, Ashley, and Gregory. He was the brother of Claire Moss, Nadine Knowles, Ellen Hatch, and the late Walter Loomis, Jr.

      Mr. Loomis was a proud veteran of the US Navy, enlisting on August 21, 1947, just 17 days after his 17th birthday. He served during the Korean and Vietnam Wars aboard many ships including aircraft carriers USS Coral Sea and USS Essex as well as ten (10) submarines - USS Sablefish (where he was nicknamed "Doc"), USS Blenny, USS Conger, USS Sarda, the nuclear-powered USS Triton (credited with the first submerged circumnavigation of the earth in Operation Sandblast), atomic-powered USS Seawolf, USS Sea Owl, USS Shark, USS Canopus, and USS Fulton. During his service, Mr. Loomis had Secret Clearance and earned five (5) Good Conduct awards, a National Defense medal, and the Navy's "Europe" Occupation Service Clasp. He retired in 1968 as a Hospital Medic, Petty Officer First Class (HM1) after 20 years of service.

      After retiring from the US Navy, Corydon worked for 18 years at Ciba-Geigy and 5 years at the US Postal Service.
      Cory loved to cook, always adding a 'secret ingredient' to the family recipes, and was an avid card player, especially on-line Pinochle. Corydon and Gloria (Cor & Glor) loved to dance and and were members of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio. He especially enjoyed watching the swans as he looked out over Little Pond. As a loving and devoted Grampie, Cory taught his grandchildren to fish, how to play Hearts, took them to get doughboys, and cooked his special meals for them, including home-made apple sauce and corn-on-the-cob.

      Above all, Corydon lived life and faced death with courage and dignity.

      His funeral service was held Thursday, April 19, in the Thomas & Walter Quinn Funeral Chapel, Warwick . Burial with military honors was in RI Veterans Cemetery, Exeter.
