SOUTH BEND - Amon Loren Loy, Jr., 64, was born on May 9, 1953 to the late Amon Loren Loy, Sr. & Alice Adele (Bragg) Loy. Amon passed away at Hospice House in Roseland, IN on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 10:30 am after a long illness. He had requested his body be given to Indiana University of Medicine for research.Amon was a lifelong resident of South Bend, except for 15 months when the family had relocated to Mooresville, IN. Amon was a 1971 graduate of the former LaSalle High School. After graduation, he attended IUSB. Amon was a hard and diligent worker and was employed for many years with the former E H Tepe Co, and until health issues forced an early retirement, spent 24 years working at St. Paul's Retirement Facility. He had 2 different stints there: first as their van driver and most recently as Security through Unity Security Inc. Amon was a devoted sports fan. The Pacers were his pride & joy, and the cause of many a heartache when they'd come up on the short end of the game. He loved his ND football, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Reds, Indianapolis Colts, and “da Cubs”. Even on his sickest of days he could muster a strong and vibrant, “COME ON, you guys are playing like crap” or “You're stinking up the place.” Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Susan (Samp) Loy; daughter, Natalie; brother, Marty (Jill) of Coatsville; sister, Barbara (Michael) Butler of South Bend; brother-in-law, Richard Clauser; sister-in-law, Nancy Loy; mother-in-law, Joann; and his special friend, Howard. Also cherishing his memory include special nephews, Tom Loy and Stephen Butler among other nieces, nephews, family, friends, and former co-workers. Amon confessed his belief in his Lord and Savior and most recently had joined Greater St. John Missionary Baptist Church, where he could be seen in the center section, back row, enjoying the lively choral selections and the preached word from Pastor McGhee. A special “Thank you” to Hospice House, its staff, Michelle his nurse, Michelle his social worker, and Arlin his spiritual advisor. “Thank you, Hospice, for coming into our home and helping to make Amon as comfortable as you possibly could, and letting him know that God is great”. A Celebratory Memorial Service will be held on his birthday, Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at Greater St. John M.B. Church, 101 N. Adams, at 2:00 pm.
