Arnold Loss

Arnold Joseph “JB” Loss, 84, of Millfall, passed away Tuesday (Jan. 7, 2014) at Ruby Memorial Hospital after a short battle with cancer.

He was born June 16, 1929, in Monongah, the youngest son of the late John “JB” and Josephine (Deiling) Loss.

JB was a master gardener and loved nature. He was a dog lover and raised beagles in his early years. He also enjoyed rabbit and squirrel hunting, and followed West Virginia University sports.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his oldest son, Elliot Barr Loss; his brothers, Bernard (Kathryn) and Don; and a sister, Mildred “Gene” Carlot.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Suzanne Barr Loss; sons, Michael and his companion Susie Jett of Harter Hill, and David Loss and his wife Mary of Millfall; granddaughters, Andie Moxley of Fairmont and Veronica “Ronnie” Loss of Charleston; his sisters, Lucille Blocker and husband Richard of Monongah and Rosemary Hartman of Phoenix, Ariz.; his sisters-in-law, Kathryn Loss of Monongah and Jeannette Barr Baczuk of Mansfield, Ohio; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
