Albert William Loos, 88 of Harrison, passed away on April 22, 2023, with his family by his side. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on August 26, 1934, to Albert and Geneva (nee Bohlander) Loos.
He married Mary Etta Craig on February 19, 1954. They started their family and were blessed with 4 children: Mary Algene, Albert Jay, Marsha Gay and Douglas Howard. Bill always provided for his family and taught them many things in life. First thing he taught them was how to save money. Buying things and reselling was a gift that Bill had. He went to flea markets and yard sales to buy, sell and trade, taking his children along. The gift of negotiating was taught to each of his children just by watching him. He taught them how to read and respect people as well.
Bill's true love was to travel and see the world. His trips to watch Mexico Bull fights and excursions to Florida lead to many stories to be told for future generations. Bill also taught his family about hard work. He worked daily at Fernald and came home to work on his land. He cleared 150 acres of land mostly by hand. He always enjoyed having his goats, cattle and horses. The goats were there to serve a purpose, to keep the weeds in check. As he became older he also became wiser and worked smarter - not harder. In retirement, besides traveling, he enjoyed attending Horse races and going to Branson, Renfro Valley or Nashville to listen to country music. Bill lead a great life and his family and friends have many wonderful memories.
Those left to carry on his legacy are his loving wife of 69 years, Mary Etta (nee Craig) Loos; beloved children: Algene (Bill) Rutz, Albert "Jay" Loos, Marsha (Tracy) Baker, & Doug Loos; cherished grandchildren: Melissa (Brian) Campbell, Amanda (Matt) Brielmaier, Meganne (Chad) Cornelius, Corrie (Jason) Enneking, Albert "Jayson" (Lyndsay) Loos, William "Wills" (Kelsey) Loos, Michaela (Brady) Pearson, Austin Baker, Douglas Loos Jr., & Daniel Loos; dear great-grandchildren: Brandon, Brady & Marcus Campbell, Josie & Aiden Jacob, Caleb, Ava, & Conner Cornelius, Evan & Lottie Enneking, Albert William "Liam" Loos, Ruthie Loos, and Myla Loos; Sister: Beverly Ann Brech and sister-in-law: Evalene Slayback.
