July 14, 1952 ~ November 7, 2023

Born in: Joliet, Illinois
Resided in: Vienna, Virginia

Bradley Scott Loomis, devoted husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on November 7, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Joliet, Illinois on July 14, 1952 to Robert and Joy (née Wood) Loomis, the middle son of three boys.

He grew up in Chicago and outside of Pittsburgh until he moved to Great Falls, Virginia, where he attended his senior year at Langley High School. He then moved to Florida to attend the University of Miami where he earned two degrees, a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Business Administration. It was at college where he met the love of his life, Aida Maria Uribe, who had moved to Miami from Brownsville, Texas. They were married for 48 years.

After graduation, Brad and Aida moved to Ithaca, New York where he pursued an advanced degree in Economics from Cornell University. While in school, Brad and Aida had two daughters: Daniele and Coleen. With his Master’s degree in hand, the young family then moved to Brighton, New York, just outside of Rochester, where Brad spent many years teaching economics at several universities, including St. John Fisher College and the Rochester Institute of Technology. Soon after, their youngest daughter Julie was born.

Brad and Aida were very active at their church, Our Lady of Lourdes, and in their Brighton community where they made many lasting friendships and supported their daughters through high school and beyond. Brad and Aida were deeply devoted parents, who always put the welfare of their daughters above other considerations. For Brad, family always came first, and he was a constant, encouraging presence at field hockey, soccer, and lacrosse games, choir and band performances, and other events. When work took him to the Northern Virginia area, he made the tough decision to commute regularly back to Brighton so that his daughters could continue their education in what was one of the best school districts in the country.

In 2001, Aida joined Brad in Vienna, Virginia, where they have lived ever since. Brad worked as an applied economist in cost/benefit/risk analysis, serving the government and several government contractors throughout his career. In his free time, he was an avid bridge player and all-around gamer: adept at puzzles, crosswords, and sudoku. He read constantly, both for edification and enjoyment, reading more than 100 titles a year. But most of all he loved his family: he supported and encouraged his daughters, was generous to his sons-in-law, and was not above being downright silly with his grandchildren. And he was dedicated to his wife, Aida, whom he loved with all his heart.

Brad is survived and deeply missed by his wife Aida Uribe Loomis; his brothers, Mike and Jeff Loomis; his three daughters, Daniele (Ron) Rostan, Coleen Loomis, and Julie (Ben) Wilkins; his six grandchildren, Maddie, Megan, Jack, Grace, Owen, and Ellie; and by many beloved family members and friends.

A memorial mass will be held in celebration of Brad at Our Lady of Good Counsel [8601 Wolftrap Road, Vienna, VA 22182] on November 20 at 11:00 AM, with a luncheon to follow.

Memories Timeline


  1. I enjoyed having the opportunity to work with Brad on complicated cost analysis work in supporting the Veterans Administration. Brad always asked tough questions while making jokes and maintaining a funny outlook on the hard work we had ahead. I enjoyed his thoughtful analysis— and his perspective is what I routinely sought. Brad was truly fantastic, and I miss him very much.

  2. Dearest Aida and Daughters and Family, our deepest sympathies and prayers for the loss of your wonderful husband and father, Brad. When we met Brad at our Lourdes 50th Reunion last year, we liked him immediately and we knew that he was very special. He was a loving and personable man who was well grounded and we could see how much Brad loved Aida, which made us very happy. Aida, please know that you are surrounded with the Love of Jesus and Mary as you are embraced by your daughters and family. We love you and we will stay in prayer for Brad’s soul to be home in Jesus’ Loving Arms. May Brad’s Memory be eternal.

    With our sincerest condolences, and with our Love,
    Joanne and Jim Granzotto

  3. Brad was such a steadfast and loving supporter of Aida and, because of her leadership in AAUW Falls Church, he became a major supporter of and contributor to AAUW Falls Church. We will never forget how he generously gave his time every weekend to our Booksale fundraiser in 2023, and prior years. He will be missed dearly by his loving family, and the larger community will also sadly feel his absence.

  4. I was lucky enough to have Brad as a member of my extended family. He was always so dedicated and loving to his family, and I’ll cherish the memories I have with him. Particularly, what an amazing card player he was! I always enjoyed playing cards together as a family, and the great tips I learned from him. I’m going to miss him so much. I’m sending my deepest condolences to his immediate family – he will be missed! ❤️

  5. Dear Loomis Family, It was a pleasure to have known your father growing up and playing board games like Titan with him on occassion. Also being there together with both of our families during holidays or when times might have been a little rough in our lives. He was a caring and a very smart man and will be missed. I hope his memories are never forgotten and always be cherished by your family.
