Loy W., son of Loy W. and Irene M. (Hansen) Fitz, was born December 13, 1939, in Manning, Iowa. 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 was buried on November 22, 2022 in the Manning Cemetery in Manning, Iowa.
