William J. Loughman

Mar 5, 2024

William J. Loughman, known to many as Bill or Billy, passed away Friday, February 16th, 2024 with his family by his side. Born and raised in West Roxbury, he was the son of the late John and Mary (Burke) Loughman. He is survived by his siblings, Susan Cabe of Cramerton, NC, Nancy Giovannucci and husband John of Norwood and Lisa Gillis and husband Jimmy of West Roxbury, one niece and three nephews, as well as several great nieces and nephews. Billy also leaves many loving and caring friends.

Bill was gifted with a special quality to brighten other people’s days wherever he went. He went about life with a smile on his face and a passion to help others. His love and passion for his work in the community was something to be admired. For those who knew Bill, his love for gardening and making flower arrangements was like no other. It’s no wonder his home was on the Marion Garden Club House Tour, for which he was very proud. Billy loved being by the ocean, going out on the boat, swimming in his pool, and even just hanging out on the beach collecting shells. He was a beloved employee and friend to numerous tri-town families who will miss him very much. Whether it was volunteering at the cat shelter, the senior center, the Sippican Historical Society, or even just giving up his time to those that needed him, Billy was a giving person and our community will miss him very much. A celebration of his life will be held sometime in the upcoming months.
