Kenneth ‘LOOPER’ Loop

Loop, Kenneth Eugene

“I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it, is the day I will stop loving you.”

It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone who has been a part of our lives for so long. When that person is gone, there’s a hole in your heart where they used to be. That is what many of us are feeling right now. Kenneth Eugene Loop, 82, passed away peacefully on April 5th, 2021. He was the loving husband of Sharon Loop. They would have shared 60 years of marriage as of July 22, 2021. Ken ‘LOOPER’ was born in Wheatley, Ontario, he was the son of the late Warren and Doretta Loop, and the younger brother of the late Royce Loop and Murray Loop (Jane Pursel). LOOPER was the proud owner and operator of Loop’s Fisheries Limited, alongside with his brother Murray and then later his only son Todd. LOOPER was an avid sports fan and loved to follow the Detroit Tigers, along with his son and then grandsons sporting events. LOOPER loved spending his free time out on the water and boating on the ‘Fishy Business’. He will be remembered for his quick wit and endless sense of humor. One of his favourite hobbies was spending time with his friends and family on all the local Islands, especially Pelee, where he and his wife owned a cottage for over 15 years. He is survived by spouse Sharon Loop, children Todd Loop (Tracy Loop), Christine Hodgson (Todd Hodgson), and Tara Simpson (Dan Simpson), grandchildren Ashton Loop (Alan Beausoleil), Mackenzie Loop, Tyler Loop (Tyler Lamb), Hayden Hodgson, Kennedy Hodgson and Chase Simpson and all of his furry grandchildren. Ken’s wishes were to have a private family service which will be held at a later date. The family plans to take ‘Looper’ for a farewell boat ride on the Doretta L. to celebrate his life as a beloved and extremely respected Fisherman.

His heart was his compass, family was his anchor. Goodbye my love, my father, my grandfather, great grandfather to be and my friend. Friends may share memories at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
