George Albert Loomis, Jr. died Thursday, September 14, 2017 of a sudden illness at St. Luke's Magic Valley Hospital in Twin Falls.

George started his own custom interiors/cabinet shop working mostly in Century City, California and started his family of 2 sons and 1 daughter.

George came to Idaho on a fishing trip that changed his life. He went to work for his father, Loomis Construction and later started his own construction company.

On August 7, 1972, George married Linda Sowersby and they began a lifetime of love and fun. They managed to be very active in all things fun - camping, boating, waterskiing, golfing, fishing, hunting and trap shooting. George will be greatly missed by all who knew him and his dry sense of humor.

George is survived by his wife, Linda; son, Mark (July) grandson, Levi and granddaughter, Juleen; daughter, Becky (Michel) granddaughter, Alexandra and grandson, Nicholas; son, Steven. Also surviving is brothers, Ned and Gary; sister-in-law, Marguerite; as well as nieces, Megan and Ally; and mother-in-law, Dolores Sowersby. He was preceded in death by father and mother.
