Loy W., son of Loy W. and Irene M. (Hansen) Fitz, was born
December 13, 1939, in Manning, Iowa, where he attended school. Loy was a graduate of The University of
Nebraska-Lincoln where he received a degree as an Actuary. For most of his
working years, Loy worked as a casualty actuary in the insurance business.
Loy's greatest "hobby" was his family's genealogical tree and
history, a work that was never-ending. A quiet man by nature, his few words on
any rendered opinion held great merit. Loy was often spotted throughout Quincy,
Massachusetts, but most often at the library doing his research, at Starbucks
drinking his Grande Bold, and Gunther Tooties eating his favorite cinnamon raisin bagels.
On October 4, 2022, Loy passed away at the Accent Care
Inpatient Hospice Center in Milton, Mass. He was a man of great courage
battling Parkinson's Disease in the last years of his life and will be missed
by his many friends who were lucky to have known him.
Loy will be buried in the Manning Cemetery in Manning, Iowa.
Donations in his name can be made at https://www.parkinson.org. Ohde Funeral
Home in Manning, Iowa, is in charge of local arrangements.
Note: Irene Fitz was the daughter of Herman P. and Laura (Karsten) Hansen. Her siblings were Lauren, Walter, John R., Erwin, and Grace.
