Loos, Sr. have been rescheduled for Friday, January 28th: His Funeral Service will be offered Friday, January 28th at Twelve noon from The Godfrey Funeral Home of Palermo, 644 South Shore Rd., Palermo, NJ where friends may call from 11 o'clock until the time of service. Burial will follow in Seaside Cemetery, Palermo, NJ. George Loos Sr. 85, a long-time resident of Marmora, NJ, passed away peacefully on January 20, 2022. He is survived by his beloved wife, Norma; his son George Jr. (Lindsey), and his precious granddaughter Aubrey. George is also survived by his daughter, Laurie Jones, and two grandchildren, his sister Doris Heuman, his brothers-in-law, Rodney and David Cline, (Judy), and many nieces, nephews as well as great-nieces and nephews. George Loos Sr. was born on May 29th, 1936, and raised on his parents' farm in Egg Harbor, New Jersey. In his 20s, he worked various jobs before becoming an Ocean City police officer for nearly 7 years. While he worked as a police officer, he was building his own painting and carpentry business. In 1963, he made the decision to resign from the police department and work on his business full time. For about the next 20 years, George worked primarily in Ocean City, painting houses and doing carpentry work; he was best known for his fair prices and quality work. Within those 20 years, George was a member of the Marmora volunteer fire department, served in the National Guard Reserves, and built his own home in Marmora, where he lived the rest of his life. In the 1980s, George was able to fulfill his life dream by starting his own farming business in Marmora, a little place almost every local was familiar with: George's farm market. The farm started as just a bare piece of land he was able to rent, and he built it into a thriving business everyone came to love. In 2005, George was forced to give up the farm by the landowners, which started George's well-deserved retirement. George's favorite things to do with his time were fishing and riding his motorcycle. George was a great father, grandfather, and friend. He wouldn't hesitate to help someone out that was in need. He was certainly a jack of all trades and could come up with a solution to any problem he was faced with. As a friend quoted, "He Was A Giant Amongst most men." George touched many lives and was loved by all who had the chance to know him. He will be missed dearly by all he leaves behind. His Funeral Service will be offered Friday, January 28th at Twelve noon from The Godfrey Funeral Home of Palermo, 644 South Shore Rd., Palermo, NJ where friends may call from 11 o'clock until the time of service. Burial will follow in Seaside Cemetery, Palermo, NJ. For condolences to the family, visit www.godfreyfuneralhome.com
