Dr. James E. Loucks gave birth to some 7,500 babies during his distinguished career as an obstetrician-gynecologist. One of the founding fathers of Los Alamos as a self-governing entity, Loucks died Aug. 1.
People who knew him, generations of people he literally brought into the world and people who were touched by his generosity and spirit have been reminded again what a special person he was and what a profound loss the community now suffers.
The doctor and his family
The good doctor’s deeds, his gifts, his family, and his life-long love affair with his wife, Betty Jo, will likely be told and retold for a long time.
A few anecdotes from a memoir he penned at the end of his life, a few recollections from his friends, and reports on his activities in the public sphere may comfort those who knew him and introduce him to others who did not.
“Betty Jo and James led a charmed life,” he wrote. “In the early days of our marriage, we rarely had enough money to always meet our needs, but we were always happy.”
