ROCKLAND — With sorrow, tears, and broken hearts the family of Loy Milton Linscott Jr. 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 Ave., where they raised their family. He dearly loved his five children of whom he always spoke highly, 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; his stepfather, Robert Kurr Sr.; his sister, BettyAnn; and his brothers, Jesse Linscott and Charles Kurr; he is survived by his wife, Donna, of
Rockland; his sons, Loy M. Linscott III and his wife Jo of Rockland, and Daniel Linscott of North Carolina; his daughters, Theresa Hooper of Rockland, Dorothy Gamage of Rockland, and Donna Jameson and her husband Michael of Friendship; his brothers, Robert Kurr Jr., Frank Kurr and his wife Brenda, and Jesse Kurr and his wife Lori, all of Rockland; his sisters, Martha Kurr, and Barbara McDonald and her husband Glen of Rockland;
his sister-in-law, Patti Kurr whom he was very close to; and 9 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,” and “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.
