Loy is now Singing with the Angels in that Great Celestial Choir! Surely he is walking the Golden Streets of Heaven visiting with family, friends and chatting up stats with the Sports legends of old. Loy will be laid to rest with his family at the Lone Elm Cemetery. Memorial Service pending a time when we may gather in his memory.
We will miss you “Big Guy”.
Loy is preceded in death by his Father, William Edward Hurd, Mother Mable Irene Conner, Stepfather Paul Conner and Brother Jay R “Tiny” Hurd.
Loy Hurd was proud to share that he attended Ozark Bible College, Iowa Central Community College, and Claremore Jr. College. He often did his part supporting the college sports teams along with his college studies. He and a friend published two books, “Poems by Loy”. It is a wonderful collection of poems he wrote over the years.
Loy’s favorite pass time was visiting with friends. In his healthier days, he was often seen walking around Claremore, going to various Church and social events. He had a generous heart and loved his hometown community.
