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.

He attended Catholic school and graduated from Monongah High School in 1947. He began working for the B&O Railroad at the age of 15, as a track builder. After high school, he was hired as a brakeman and retired after 43 years as a conductor for the Chessie System (CSX).

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.

Domico Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. There will be a graveside memorial service and celebration of his life to be announced in the spring.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
