Visionner la présentation hommage

Hugh Loyer, age 95, of White Lake, passed away October 4, 2020. Beloved husband of the late Ann. Loving father of Rochelle Loyer, Holly Loyer (Paul Michaud), Cary (Eileen) Loyer and Darrin (Jill) Loyer. Treasured grandfather of Trevor Loyer. Dear brother of Lavern (Fran) Loyer. Proud uncle of many nieces and nephews. Hugh was preceded in passing by his parents: Edward and Hughann; and his siblings: Lawrence, Leannore, Johnny, Lester and Lorena.

Hugh embodied the pioneer spirit. As a youth he learned to hunt, fish, and trap game. Like all his siblings, he helped out on the farm. He was even photographed putting together a CASE tractor from the pieces shipped in a box when he was around 12 years old!

During WWII, he enlisted in the Navy at age 17. At age 23 he was one of the youngest road building supervisors in the state of Michigan. Shortly after that he was drafted into the Army and served in the Korean War with the Army Core of Engineers building roads.

After the Korean War, he met his bride Ann and they married and raised 4 children. He built his home in White Lake and ran a successful construction business until his retirement. He enjoyed working in the construction industry and continued to do so part time long after his retirement. He liked to travel and travelled much of the US and Mexico, with later years travelling to Florida annually. The outdoors has always been a large part of Hugh's life, especially animals and wildlife. Speaking with family and friends and sharing stories was always a joy to Hugh. He was love and respected and will be missed.

Visitation will be held Friday, October 9, 2020 from 4:00pm until 8:00pm at the Highland Chapel of the Elton Black & Son Funeral Home, 3295 E. Highland Road, Highland. Burial will be held Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 12:00pm at St. Raphael Catholic Cemetery, Mikado, Michigan.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association.

Dad
I never took the opportunity to thank you for everything you have done for me and my family. Even though I had many years to do it I was hoping to have many more.
I will cherish the last night we spent together for the rest of my life. Only seven days ago you wanted to go up north and have a couple of drinks together yesterday we had the chance and we took it. Unfortunately it was not exactly the way we planed it we got the job done! You even brought mom . I once again want to thank you both for all the sacrifices you made and the moral values you provided me with to live a wonderful life .
I hope I have made you both proud and continue to do so please rest in peace I love you both and hope to reunite with you both in heaven when my time on this earth earth is over.
Your loving son Cary.
