Our roots run deep in Loring. For over 128 years our family has lived in Loring and is a part of Lorings history and future. We have created this website to share with you our Loring community on Naha Bay.

Our Tsimshian grandmother arrived from Metlakatla Alaska in 1889 to Loring Alaska to work at a near by Fish Oil Plant. She was born in Lax Kwalamms( Port Simpson BC) of the Gitsbudwada (Killer Whale Clan), Gitnadoiks Tribe. She met our grandfather, an Irishman from Oakland California. He arrived in Loring 1892 to work at the largest Salmon cannery operation in the District of Alaska. Our grandparents soon married and made the remote cannery village their home. Their youngest son stayed on in Loring. He married our grandmother; it was her love of Loring and the lush mild climate of Southeast Alaska that made her leave her home in the cold interior of Alaska. An Innoko River, Athabascan native and Czech, grandma never looked back and enjoyed her many years of raising a family in Loring on Naha Bay. For 6 generations now our family still calls Loring Alaska home. Totally awesome!

Every summer we have a Family gathering to celebrate our Loring roots and native heritage, complete with fireworks over the bay! `
This website is dedicated to the memory of our proud grandparents Thomas & Florence Stack. Tom Stack Sr. peacefully passed away in his sleep 2001 in Ketchikan Alaska. He was 4 days shy of reaching his 87th birthday. He will be greatly missed and remembered by his family and especially by his grandchildren.
