There were 9 children. 5 sons - - Nassau County Policemen - Francis (Commissioner of Police) Harold, Michael, Walter and James. Other siblings, Jack, Mildred, Patrick, and Marita. Jack Looney had a Piper Cub that flew from the farm on Stewart Avenue near South Oyster Bay Road. Jack would take off and land using the corn field as an air field. He charged five dollars a ride.
