​On March 9, 2018, God welcomed Loring Holmes Triplett, Jr. into his glorious kingdom. Loring was born November 30, 1946, in Silver Spring, MD. He was the last of 8 children born to the late Loring Holmes Triplett, Sr. and Hilda Lockhart. He attended Blair High Scholl and upon graduation entered the United States Marine Corps. Loring served 5 years in the USMC which included a tour in Vietnam. It was during this tour he earned 3 separate purple hearts. After his tour in Vietnam, Loring was assigned as a White House Marine guarding President Nixon. Upon an honorable discharge with the United States Marine Corps, Loring came home and worked as a postal carrier for the United States Postal Service. Retiring after 25 years, Loring acquired a position working in Food Service with Montgomery County Public Schools. He retired from this position after 15 years. 

​Loring met his loving wife Evelyn during his employment with the United States Postal Service. They have been married for 40 years and have 3 children together, William (Aileen) of Santa Monica, CA, Angela (Jason) of Elkridge, MD, and Cynthia (Darell) of Germantown, MD. In addition to his 3 children, he is survived by 7 grandchildren, Jhalea, Kimi, Natalie, Alexis, Christiana, Isaiah, and Makoto.

​A private ceremony, for immediate family only, will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (www.lls.org) or a charity of your choice in Loring's name.

I'm sorry I didn't get to know Jr. better through out our lives as we are cousins. I do remember hearing his name as it was associated with Buster, Hilda and of course his daddy Uncle Loring who was my grand father Lawson's brother. I am but from August to November older than Jr. and I too served during Viet Nam but with the USAF. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as were are all facing life's decisions that come with passing on. I hope Jr. was a believer and if so we are just passing from this life into a great homecoming with family. My mother was the second oldest girl of Lawson Triplett who was Loring's brother.

While it has been a long time since I saw Jr., I will always remember his kind smile and cousin way he would flirt with a six your old girl. He was truly a nice person and I was always so sorry that many of the family members moved away. I will always hold dear those memories in my heart.

My Dear Uncle, although we grew apart, you were a HUGE part of my loving childhood memories and I love you very much. It it with deepest regrets that I have found that you have left us, but with joy and celebration that you have gone home to our Lird, Jesus Christ. We fondest memories I’ll always tell the stories of how we cut the fish up in the attack and burned the eyeballs (chemistry 101) and played with Daddy’s snare drum! I will miss you as I have and I will meet you, Dad, Uncle Buster, Aunt Tootsie, Aunt Peggy, Gamar and Grand Daddy’s and all the family when my Liord sends for me... I love you, dearly! Please hug my Daddy and my Grand dad and my Gamar for me... until then....

Our deepest sympathy to Evelyn and family during this sad time. My husband, Barry Bryan worked with Loring at the Rockville Post Office for many years. They had a great time working there. There are many stories from being a walking mailman together. I worked with Loring at MCPS Food Services Warehouse for 15 years. He was such a loving, caring, great person who had a heart of gold. He will be missed by many people who worked here at Food Services. Everyone thought of him as a friend.
