Kenneth M. Loesch
Kenneth M. Loesch passed away on January 27, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. Ken was born to Joseph and Edythe Loesch and lived a very full life. He was predeceased by his first wife, Maureen. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Connie Loesch , his children Sean-Patrick Loesch of Chicago, IL, Deborah Kerns of The Villages, FL, Rosellen Murphy of Metuchen, NJ, Kenneth Loesch of Piscataway, NJ, Judith Giglia of Woodland Hills, CA and Eugene Loesch of Avondale, AZ, John Hayes of Marlboro, NY, Thomas Hayes of Kissimmee, FL and Cathy Downie of Glendale, AZ. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Ken was a Navy veteran and a Pace University graduate. Born in Greenwich, CT , he had resided in Bronx, NY before moving his family to Metuchen, NJ. He was a longtime employee of Rutgers University and had retired to Sarasota, FL and later relocated to Pebble Creek in Goodyear, Arizona. He loved sports including dance skating in his early years and golf and squash. At the age of 79 he was still a force to be reckoned with on the squash court.
In his most recent months he surprised us with his talent for singing Frank Sinatra tunes.
He was the most gentle soul with a heart of gold. He touched the lives of so many and his legacy will live on forever. He was loved by all and always shared his love with everyone he knew. He lit up a room with his warm smile and wit which he shared to the end. He said he had a wonderful life, always tried to give back and had no regrets. He faced the end with courage, grace and serenity knowing he would be united with God our Father in heaven.
A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Thompson Funeral Chapel, 926 S. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear, AZ.
