With sorrow, tears, and broken hearts the family of Loy Milton Jr. Linscott announces his unexpected passing following a sudden illness on Thursday, December 24, 2020, at PenBay Medical Center in Rockport. Loy was 78 years old and a husband of 61 years to Donna (Cross) Linscott. He was loved and will always live on in her heart.

Born December 30, 1941, in Rockland to Loy and Dorothy (Ryan) Linscott Sr., he was educated in local schools and for a time attended Rockland High School.

In 1959 he married Donna Cross and together they built their home on Talbot Avenue, where they raised their family. He dearly loved his five children whom he always spoke highly of and they are lost without him.

A quiet, hard-working man, Loy held several jobs over the years that included Ferraiolo Construction and the former SeaPro Fish Plant. But it was driving trucks for Ferraiolo’s that he loved the best.

He leaves behind many long-time friends and buddies from both Ferraiolo’s and SeaPro, as well as his beloved chickens.

Predeceased by his parents Loy M. Linscott Sr. and Dorothy (Linscott) Kurr, step-father Robert Kurr Sr., sister, BettyAnn, and brothers Jesse Linscott and Charles Kurr, he is survived by wife Donna of Rockland; sons Loy M. Linscott III and wife Jo of Rockland, Daniel Linscott of North Carolina; daughters Theresa Hooper of Rockland, Dorothy Gamage of Rockland, Donna Jameson and husband Michael of Friendship; brothers Robert Kurr Jr., Frank Kurr and wife Brenda, and Jesse Kurr and wife Lori, all of Rockland; sisters Martha Kurr, and Barbara McDonald and husband Glen of Rockland; sister-in-law Patti Kurr whom he was very close to, and nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren who he loved very much.

Loy will be deeply missed, and for his fellow truckers he would say; “breaker, breaker to all my trucking buddies. Yogi signing off for the last time.”

A gathering to celebrate Loy’s life and a graveside committal in the Kurr section of Seaview Cemetery in Rockland will be announced in the spring.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.
