Lucien Loring

Lucien Loring, 77, Brookings, died June 18, 2000.

He was born May 15, 1923, in Bellingham, Wash., to Lucien and Myrth Loring.

He served in the Army in Europe during World War II.

He moved to Brookings in 1946 and built the first new business building in Brookings after World War II, family members said.

He was a mechanic by trade and could repair any engine or anything mechanical including the newspaper printing press. His business, Lorings Sales and Service was in operation for more than 35 years.

He began by selling and servicing chain saws and added pumps, outboard motors, jeeps, boats, and motorcycles. After retirement, he continued to build and maintain home water well pump systems.

He was a self-educated man with many interests. His extensive library includes volumes on religion, history, mechanics, politics, aeronautics, automobiles, firearms, Indian motorcycles, antiques of all kinds, real estate law, finance, current novels and Louis LAmour westerns.

Survivors are wife L. Dolores Loring, Brookings; son Arthur Loring, Boise, Idaho; daughter Janet Hughes, Brookings; brother Alden Loring, Brookings; sister Myrth Loring, Seal Rock.

Also surviving are 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Preceding him in death were sons Dale and Ted, and daughter Nancy.

At his request no services will be held. Internment will be at Ward Memorial Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Chetco Community Public Library.
