NORMAN E. LOONEY, 96, of Davison, Michigan, formerly of Flushing, Michigan, went to be with his Lord and those that went before him on Sunday, January 10, 2021. A Private Funeral Service will be held, with Military Honors, at Central Church of the Nazarene, 1261 West Bristol Road, Flint, MI 48507; Pastor Jon Gildner officiating. Interment will be on a later date in Great Lakes National Cemetery. Because Norman always considered the needs of others above his own, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Carriage Town Ministries or the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
Norman was born in Walnut Grove, Missouri on July 22, 1924, son of the late Gene and Faye (Simmons) Looney. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1943-1946. Norman married Marjorie Hemingway on November 25, 1950 and they spent 67 loving years together before her death on May 7, 2018. He attended Southwest Missouri State College and later earned a Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University. Norman taught at General Motors Institute and retired as Assistant Director at Hurley Medical Center.
He was a humble man who loved his family, his country and his God, above all else. Norman taught his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to walk through the world with compassion, honor and integrity. He was a man of few words, but his life spoke volumes, a living example to all who knew him of what unconditional, sacrificial love is.
Norman is survived by 5 children, Carolyn (David) Mansfield, David (Joyce) Looney, William (Judy) Looney, Wayne (Rebecca) Looney and Laura (Peter) Boyd; 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; many other loving family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gene and Faye Looney; wife, Marjorie Looney and brother, Glen Looney.
The family would like to thank Charter Senior Living for caring for our father, especially during the challenges presented by social distancing over the past year. Special thanks to Jamie, Mari Lynn and Aaron who he considered to be his family as well.
