Carl was born August 23, 1937 in Elmwood, Wisconsin to parents Carl Loomis Sr. and Ida Baker. He moved to Tacoma at a young age and met his wife Lenora Rose Sircello who passed away in 1991. They were married for thirty three years.
Buck loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, and his family. His family never hired out labor for anything; Carl took care of it. His son Darren spent time with his father daily.
He is survived by his four children, Julie (Don) Moore, Brenda Loomis, Danny (Tani) Loomis, and Darren Loomis; sisters Betty (Lloyd) Porter, Wanda Brenshaw, Patricia Martinson; brother Jack (Angel) Loomis; grandchildren Brandy Moore, Dana Smith, Brittney Pier, Trenton Ghorley, Sean Loomis, Chelsea Loomis; as well as ten great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in passing by his sisters Carol Wendtlandt, Yvonne Shepard, and Loretta Fisher.
